With over 30 players in attendance from the 2019 class here is your Nike Showcase Underclassmen MVP, First-Team, and Second-Team.
MVP: Julian Dozier, U of D Jesuit
With a very good group of players from the 2019 class, especially at the point guard position- Dozier stood out above the rest. Throughout the day he showcased why he already holds a handful of D-1 offers. He was dominate on both ends of the floor and was as smooth as can be in transition. Fellow campers quickly learned to always be prepared for the pass when teamed up with Dozier. In games Dozier made highlight assist after assist…then he would go into his own scoring mode. If you’re a fan of basketball then you’ll love Dozier’s approach to the game. Showed all the traits to be one of the state’s elite players- skilled, tough, always in control.
Brian Booker, Heritage
6-0 lead guard has transferred into class A Heritage after having a successful freshman campaign at Class B Carrollton. After his performance at camp he looks more than ready to take on the Saginaw Valley League. He showed in both games and drills the ability to score from all 3 levels. Has a very polished midrange game, great on-ball defender. In games excelled in pick-and-roll situations, always making the right decision.
Cade Coleman, Davison
Of all the 2019 campers Coleman may have the biggest upside. At 6-5 he is skilled and comfortable with the ball in his hands, actually he prefers the ball in his hands and excels with it. Has a tight handle, good change of direction, above average floor vision, and never got rattled under pressure. Will have a huge sophomore season at Davison, is already drawing D1 interest, and is a top 10 player for Michigan’s 2019 class.
Elias Ramirez, Bay City Central
It is rare you see a player as mentally tough but yet as smooth with his game as Ramirez. Very good scorer who doesn’t need much room to get to basket and finish. Already a gamer, evidence from his freshman year at Central, but looked good in drills showing a skill set to throw his name in ring as a D1 prospect. Quick first step and doesn’t need much room to operate with- just has a knack for getting to basket.
Carrington Wiggins, Goodrich Fundamentally sound and just knows how to play. Silky smooth game and knows how to use his long arms to his benefit. As his body develops and gets stronger he will be that much more of a gamer. Another player that just stoodout ans was solid all day in both games and drills.
Reggie Williams, Arthur Hill
6-0 sophomore guard is quickly making a name for himself. He backed up a strong July with a dominating camp and is establishing himself as a D1 prospect, as well as one state’s top players for 2019 class. Complete player on both ends- tough enough to mix it up inside and skilled enough to shine on perimeter. Great on-ball defender, especially in open floor. Well-conditioned, physical athlete, that just went harder than everyone else all day.
Koby Barnett, Saginaw High
Very good small forward that can play both inside and outside. Plays hard and with a passion for the game. Will give Saginaw High a skilled scorer for the next three years.
Tevin Blackman, Saginaw High
Sophomore guard will play a key role for Saginaw High this season, and some around the program say he may even start. Brings to the table everything you expect out of a Trojan- tough, gritty, & defensive minded.
BJ Johnson, Arthur Hill
Another standout from an already loaded 2019 Arthur Hill class, good shooter, strong finisher, and plays with a high basketball I.Q.
Cortiyah Moore, Arthur Hill
Easily the quickest player and hardest to stay in front of at camp. Plays extremely fast but still under control and able to make the right decision.
Garrett Sheridan, Bay City Western
At 6-5 his skill level brings so much to the table. Was sharp during drills and equally as impressive during games. Very crafty with either hand, yet plays with that toughness you love to see.
