STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: The MHSAA hoops transfer bulletin — Who went where & what it means
Some of the notable transfers on the boys basketball floor in the MHSAA
Orchard Lake St. Mary’s got high-scoring Javaughn Hannah (Western Michigan) from Ypsilanti Prep via Mt. Clemens. The 6-foot-4 Hannah is expected to be a Mr. Basketball candidate this winter and St. Mary’s could be the No. 1 team in the state again for the third straight season.
Warren De La Salle gained the services of razzle-dazzle combo guard Tamario Adley, who transferred in from Harper Woods Chandler Park Academy, while Adler’s teammate at Chandler Park Academy, 6-foot-8 big fella Dylan Grant, made the move to Warren Michigan Collegiate. Adding Adley to the lineup, provides DLS enough firepower to make a second straight trip to the final four.
North Farmington picked up some heavy-duty artillery in the backcourt, seeing both Prince Jackson from Farmington and Ryan Hurst from West Bloomfield enroll last month. Jackson and Hurst were both All-OAA selections last year as sophomores.
Detroit King’s frontcourt will benefit from rangy senior Matt Coffee coming over from Mt. Clemens to play his senior season in the PSL.
Detroit Western saw senior wing Calvin Marshall come over from Detroit Edison.
Over on the westside of the state, junior guard Grant Gondrezick IItransferred from Stevensville Lakeshore to Benton Harbor, where his two sisters played and won state titles.
Rochester Adams is benefiting from the return of Gunner Walters and Williamston is still beaming from Mason Docks re-enrolling in Hornetsville recently. Both are back from out of state, back to where they started their prep careers three years ago. Walters and Docks (UM-Baltimore County) are both back in the Mitten to play their senior campaigns, after playing in Florida and Texas, respectively, last winter.
