DETROIT PSL 2021 BOYS BASKETBALL POWER RANKINGS

1 Pierre “P.J.” Brooks Jr. (Detroit Douglass 6-6 Sr. F) — Signed with Michigan State, Brooks is one of the best pure scorers the PSL has ever seen and a frontrunner for Mr. Basketball, strictly business every time he hits the floor

2 Omar Zeigler (Detroit King 6-3 Sr. G) — Tough-as-nails out of the backcourt, plays with bulldog tenacity and the heart of a lion, a true warrior on the hardwood. 

3 Chansey Willis (Detroit King 6-2 Jr. G) — Cool-as-ice, smooth as silk style, the definition of a closer, ready to erupt as a college recruit.

4 Rylan Bowens (Detroit Cass Tech 6-7 Jr. F) — Raw power, rip-and-run type off the wing, about to take that next step to PSL superstardom this season.

5 Javantae Randle (Detroit Douglass 6-8 Sr. C) — Fabulous upside in the paint, hard-worker, hard-to-handle-on-the blocks, extending his range.

6 Tharren “Squally” Hill (Detroit Pershing 5-10 Jr. G) — Jitterbug moves, high motor, slick handles, clever in the clutch, extraordinary basketball IQ.

7 Terrance Broughton (Detroit Cass Tech 6-0 Jr. G) — Transfer from Romulus where he was the Eagles leading scorer last season (16 ppg.), Broughton is awaiting the green-light on his eligibility in the PSL.

8 Juwan Maxey (Detroit Renaissance 6-0 Jr. G) — Best kept secret in the PSL, flash, fundamentals and finishing ability.

9 Davin Walker (Detroit King 6-4 Sr. G) — Signed with Sienna Heights, Walker is a workhorse in the backcourt, goes 110 percent baseline to baseline on both ends of the floor.

10 Mekhai Walker (Detroit Cass Tech 6-2 Soph. G) — Slasher with a deadly mid-range game and a fast improving 3-point shot, will be a genuine difference maker for CT this winter and for years to come.

Name to watch for: 

Karon Allen (Detroit Southeastern 6-3 Jr. G/F) — Best player you’ve never heard of in the PSL.
