Bank Hoops All-State Camp: Underclassman second team

Cameron Baker  5-7  So  Davison: “Lightning quick little point guard who can get into the lane at will,” a coach said. “Sometimes settled for long, contested jumpers. A pest on the ball on the defensive end and always looking to shoot the passing lane off the ball.”

Harrison Ogochukwu  6-8  So  Orchard Lake St. Mary’s: Not as polished as his St. Mary’s teammate Peter Nnwoke, who was on the overall camp top prospect team despite also being just a sophomore. Harrison has a good motor during games, if he takes a similar approach to the game behind the scenes has a bright basketball future.

“Raw with a lot of potential,” a coach said. “Looks like he has some growing left to do and could make nice bookends with Nwoke for OLSM for years to come. Plays hard and goes after the ball. Strength and balance will be critical in his continued development.”

RJ Taylor  5-9  8th  Midland Dow: He didn’t look out of place going against the top upperclassman point guards in drills, then when the 3 ball started falling in games he really got rolling against underclassmen in games.

“Heady young point guard who wasn’t fazed by playing against older and bigger kids,” a coach said. “He just makes plays. Has a knack for getting into the lane and knows how to score. Good range and natural looking shot. Tough as nails too — he thought he broke his nose, stopped the bleeding, put some gauze in there and got right back into the action.”

Brady Titus  5-9  Fr  Tri-Unity Christian: This is the type of player that can keep Tri-Unity’s hall of fame coach Mark Keeler young. Against fellow underclassmen was able to turn the corner and score with a soft touch from either hand. But he also has change-of-speed stuff and court awareness to operate against bigger, smaller players. Can over-dribble at times but looks really good when he’s on the move, getting into the lane to pull up or pitch for 3s.

Bryce VanderWiere  6-6  So  Schoolcraft: He looked comfortable in drills, as one of youngest and shortest in his group, inverting things and making some plays from the wings. Then against fellow underclassmen in game he was an ideal age-group big man with his willingness to dole out hits and the way he always seemed to be headed downhill to finish. Good hands. Decent straight-line speed. Barring the unforeseen, as of now has a MIAA/WHAC baseline and the potential for more with continued height, more flexibility and shooting range.
