The Prep Hoops Top 250 had a collection of some of the best talent in Michigan. The event was stacked with skilled perimeter players, and the class of 2021 didn’t disappoint in that area.
Here is a look at some of the top perimeter players in the class of 2021 at the Prep Hoops Top 250 Expo:
Kobe Bufkin (6’3”, G, Grand Rapids Christian)
As a sophomore, Bufkin played up with the juniors and seniors. He didn’t disappoint. Bufkin might have had the best all around day regardless of class. He certainly looked like a Division 1 talent. Bufkin is athletic and handles the ball with ease. He can drive and dish, finish, or hit the outside jumper.
Bennie Crenshaw (5’11”, PG, Waterford Kettering)
Crenshaw is fun for fans of the game to watch. He’s quick and dynamic, with a flashy edge. Crenshaw is a confident player who creates for himself and his teammates. He played up with the juniors and seniors, and definitely fit in.
Deon Hayes (5’10”, PG, North Farmington)
Hayes was a highlight of the event. He was one of the best ball handlers at the camp. Hayes had a very low turnover rate and was a solid passer. He can drive and dish, or swing the ball with precision. It was near impossible for defenses to keep Hayes out of the lane.
Christian Johnson (5’10”, G, L’Anse Creuse North)
Johnson was very impressive on Sunday. He was smooth and quick with the ball in his hands. Johnson plays downhill and attacks the rim. He has a sense for when to make things happen and when to pull back.
Blake Lund (6’1”, G, Linden)
Lund played with the upperclassmen on Sunday and looked good doing so. He’s so steady and under control when he plays. It’s tough to find a weakness when watching Lund. He recognizes good scoring opportunities and always seems to make the smart pass.
Makylind Manciel (6’2”, G, Detroit Country Day)
Manciel also played with the upperclassmen, and he certainly sent a message. Not only did he fit in, but he was able to effectively play an aggressive and physical game. Manciel was outstanding on the defensive end and really looked like a hustle player.
Mikkos Stewart (6’0”, G, Brother Rice)
Stewart was steady as can be on Sunday. He was solid and efficient with the ball and was an excellent floor leader. Stewart displayed the ability to score at all three levels. He had one of the best overall days regardless of grade.
