Bank Hoops Underclassman All-State Camp

Class of 2025 All-Camp Team 

Bank Hoops Underclassman Camp MVP Sharod Barnes a sophomore from Orchard Lake St. Mary’s.

MVP: Sharod Barnes  6-2  So  Orchard Lake St. Mary’s

Macomb Dakota sophomore Isaiah Hines.

Isaiah Hines  5-9  So  Macomb Dakota: He was an impact Class A freshman for a team that lost in a regional final to eventual state champ DLS, and played with vet poise and chutzpah. Explosive off the dribble and athletic and creative at the cup where he finishes at the rate of a bigger player. Fundamentals beneath the acrobatics and flash, and played off of the jump stop. Made good run-and-jump reads on defense and could quickly turn ends for a pick six. “A very good shooter off the catch and off of the dribble,” a coach said.

Elija Langston  6-7  So  Muskegon: Soft and ready hands around the basket, efficient catch-and-finish guy. Can shoot it to 3, though he’ll likely be asked to work inside-out and earn those looks with the Big Reds. “Showed very good skills in stations, and played even better in games,” a coach said. “Played hard when he felt like doing so and could have a bright future.”

Sophomores TJ Stevenson from Saginaw and Mason Parker from Troy.

Mason Parker  5-11  So  Troy: Troy High has been putting out college guards the entirety of Bank Hoops quarter-decade existence, most recently the camp alumni trio of Brody Parker to Oakland and the Emerzian Bros. to Madonna. The younger Parker is trending towards a prolonged career as well. Great motor for an underclassman. Pulls off the neat trick of being a creative but under control ball-handler. Could pass with either hand, and with some oomph on ’em. Good shooter who was patient, able to relocate and reload after big separation moves. Slight, but so was his brother before bulking up at Oakland.

TJ Stevenson  6-0  So  Saginaw: The last season of hoops at the High will have a young player to be proud of, a competitor in the Trojans tradition. A terrific passer who could also mix it up as a scorer with aggressive drives, a lefty pull-up J and even posting up smaller guards. “This young man went 100 percent in every station,” a coach said. “He broke a solid sweat during each drill and downed a bottle of water between each rotation. Then he consistently knocked down shots from all over during games, mostly playing off the ball. He seemed to also enjoy defending, rebounding and making outlet passes.”

Camden Thompson  6-4  So  Whitehall: Came in with the reputation as one of the best players in Michigan’s 2025 class, and did nothing to dissuade that notion. Played very hard on both ends and willed his way to double-doubles pursuing boards way outside his area and contorting for various scores. Athletic, rambunctious and raw, but getting more skilled by the month. Could score in the post or invert and feed it himself. Consistent defender for a young player. “Very physical finisher and tough in the mid-range,” a coach said. “Any kid who can average 10 rebounds in Class B as a freshman is a physical athlete with a great nose for the ball.” “Because I’m older and actually saw Dan Majerle play in high school, I kinda have a pass to make the comparison with this young man,” said another coach. “That’s how impressed I was.”
