The Prep Hoops Top 250 Expo was held at MSA Fieldhouse in Grand Rapids yesterday. This was an outstanding event and the talent in the building was off of the charts. I will be evaluating every player that was from the Metro Detroit area through myself watching games and also looking at games a second time on BallerTV. Everyone showed up big time and the sky is the limit for you.
D’Anthony Hamilton (2021, 6-4, Troy)
Hamilton can play basketball. I like the poise he shows when playing. He is always under control. He has a mature game to go with a high basketball IQ. He is a leader on the floor.He has good offensive and defensive skills.He would be an asset to a college program.
Derrek Bolton lll (2022, 6-4, Detroit Cristo Rey)
I have watched this young man for years. I liked the way he played at the Expo. He can play in the post and on the perimeter. When focused he is a lock down defender. He is a pure scorer. Most of all he played under control. He has matured into a college ready prospect. College coaches put him on your list.
Kipras Blazevicius (2021, 6-5, West Bloomfield)
This young man shouldn’t be overlooked. He is a good all-around basketball player. He is fundamentally sound. He has a nice shooting touch and I loved his dribble penetration. He makes excellent decisions on the floor. He can help a college program be successful or continue to be successful.
Matthew Coffey (2022, 6-6, Mount Clemens)
Coffey showed his skills at the Expo. He is a good rebounder. He has excellent footwork and moves in the post. He was able to rebound and go coast to coast and finish. He is a very strong player. With increased effort the sky is the limit.
Jayden Hardiman (2023, 6-6, Warren Mott)
This young man battles on the court. I was impressed on how he was able to jump 3 consecutive times going for an offensive rebound. He was the floor good. Offensively and defensively he is solid. He is definitely a player to keep on your radar.
D’Angelo Stoxstill (2021, 6-6, Westland John Glenn)
College recruiters will be flowing to Westland John Glenn to see this young man. Stoxstill has guard skills. He is definitely a two guard but with a little more concentration on his dribbling I believe he can be a point guard. He can shoot the lights out, penetrate and finish, and find his open teammates with pinpoint passing.
