With the 17th-Annual Bank Hoops All-State Camp two weeks away, here is another look at a prospect college coaches will want to check out September 26 at Morey Courts in Mt. Pleasant.
The underclassman dunk alert could be in effect with Merritt Alderink, a 6-6 1/2 2024 forward from Zeeland West. He plays similarly at the same age to Grand Rapids Catholic Central senior Jack Karasinski, a three-time Bank Hoops camper who recently committed to William & Mary from over a dozen D1 offers. With his physical profile and typical skill development, the left-handed Alderink could become the first D1 player to come from Zeeland West.
