STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: The Big & Tall Show — Patrolling the post in the offseason
A half-dozen big guys on the boys basketball floor ready for breakout summers
Kareem Aburashed (Birmingham Detroit Country Day 6-9) — Hidden gem on the blocks from the private school ranks.
Carson Brodsky (Bloomfield Hills 6-8 Jr.) — Could be the MIP of the OAA White next season for the defending champion Black Hawks.
Calvin Hyde (Grand Rapids Northview 6-8 Jr.) — Glue guy, grinder, knows how to use his body to muscle more athletic bigs and outwork them on the glass.
Sam Leppien (Alma 6-9 Jr.) — The best big fella in the state that not enough people know about yet.
Lane Risdon (Zeeland East 6-9 Fr.) — The next star in the post on the westside of the state, rising fast and furious like a hooping version of Vin Diesel.
Mike Sulaka (Warren De La Salle 6-7 Soph.) — Expect him to be one of the toughest defensive assignments in Metro Detroit down low the next two years, think long, active, efficient.
