John Archer 6-5 So Walled Lake Northern: An absolutely gifted passer, the rival of any point guard in camp — finding cutters and shooters, from the blocks or elbows, all kinds of angles and delivery points. A post you can run your half-court offense through. Tended towards scoop shots finishes, will need to get meaner around the rim.
“Big-bodied kid who showed flashes of production,” a coach said. “Used his body well, but didn’t always finish the job. Improvement will come as he gets in better shape.”
Spencer Feig 6-0 So Williamston: Another one off the Williamston machine. Rangy, athletic guard who could cover space in the open court and make place in the half-court. Lefty whose shot sans guide hand can look a bit awkward but it went down time and again, thus helping Feig attack closeouts with a big first step; had and-one off the dribble. Patient in the half-court, probing and attacking seams without really sitting on the ball.
Kobe Haglund 5-7 So West Ottawa: Another left-hander, and a terrific shooter coming off screens or spotting up in the corner. Also a true point guard who can get into the lane and find shooters in the corners himself. Has a floater, needs to get stronger finishing. Very skilled and competent, who by the time he’s an upperclassman could be special if he grows the nasty mentality small guards have to have, to go beyond just fitting in which won’t work to make it to the next level, you have to bring it every time, take the game to them.
Alden Ritt 6-4 So Lake Orion: Rangy pick-and-pop 4 man who shot it comfortably from three-point range. Quick and recovered well defensively, protected the rim.
“Skinny post who showed the ability to finish over either shoulder with a nice jump hook,” a coach said. “Needs to beef up to avoid being displaced in the post.”
Brady Titus 5-10 So Wyoming Tri-Unity Christian: One of the most veteran players here, after starring as a freshman for Tri-Unity’s Division 4 final four team, then starting for UTS Elite’s 16U in the summer. Looked great in drills, shooting off the catch or slashing to create space for the jumper; misses stayed on the rim. Good fundamentals, vision and acceleration in transition aad some strong finishes in games, though wasn’t as comfortable when not the point guard and having to create his own luck without the ball.
