Miller Will Keep Good Times Coming for Lake Fenton

Lake Fenton senior Jalen Miller is one of the state's toughest matchups in Class B.
Lake Fenton senior Jalen Miller is one of the state’s toughest Class B matchups.

2016 was an historic season for Lake Fenton, with a district crown and 21-3 record finally bowing out in a Class B regional final 53-50 to New Haven. They graduated standout forward Chris Bell but will again be a top 10 team in Class B with the 2017 class that includes Jalen Miller, Cameron Jackson, Isaac Golson and Andrew Forester. 6-3 senior Miller and 6-2 senior Jackson were both standouts at the 12th annual Bank Hoops All-State Camp.

Miller is tough to handle when he gets going downhill, like a poor man’s Albert White. Can pass or finish on the break. Strong first step and gets his shoulder in there and it gets scary quick for a defender. Uses his size to create points around the rim, then cause a matchup problem stepping outside to work post angles for assists and hit three-pointers off the dribble. Miller looks like a 15 and 10 a night lock for LF and the heir apparent to Beecher alumnus Quay Burks as the best all-around forward in the GAC Red. He’s not a knock-down shooter, which he’ll need in order to shake a tweener label.

Bank Hoops College Guard Workshop October 22

Jackson is a smooth guard with a nice first step that he used to his advantage pushing the ball in transition. He was on the same team as one of the camp’s top point guard performer, Warren De La Salle junior Justin Fischer, and played well off him, setting up for three-pointers or sharing the ball with each other in transition.
