Detroit Country Day didn’t even play half of a normal regular season with nine games in 2021. That was still enough for their pending four-year starting point guard Julian Scott to make AP all-state. The 6-1 senior is one of a few very quality 2022s in Michigan that is heretofore largely under the radar given his credentials. Scott’s name was usually the first off of coaches’ lips when asked who was the top performer they’d worked with or seen at the Bank Hoops All-State Camp. Similar to Keyon Menifield’s breakout performance here last fall, Scott’s showing should foreshadow a big-time senior season which will see him emerge firmly on college coaches’ radars once the dust settles and fat is trimmed and real hoopers left standing.
“He was really solid, just a very, very good all-around player — scholarship worthy,” said a coach.
One of the sharper pick-and-roll guards at the event, which bodes well in the winter when he’ll be paired with one of the state’s top senior big men Kareem Aburashed for the Yellowjackets. Good handle and vision, made the game easy for his teammates. Aggressive and brought the action, while still maintaining feel. Might the right, veteran decisions on the break. College caliber size, athleticism for the position.
