It’s been very clear since about 2014 that this 2018 class was loaded at every position. From Detroit to Grand Rapids, Lansing to Ann Arbor, and Flint to the upper peninsula, talent in this year’s senior class is everywhere. Despite being nowhere short of impressive scholarship offers, the state still has many talented seniors still left on the board. Now without further ado, here are the state’s top uncommitted seniors.
Lamar Norman JR. 6’2 (Wyoming Goodwin Heights)– Norman is one of the top scorers in the state. He is great at getting to the basket and finishing with contact. He is good at creating shots for himself as well as for his teammates. After decommitting from UTEP, he grew to be one of the top available seniors in the nation. He has been receiving heavy interest from Butler and UCLA. His senior teammate, Markeese Hastings is signed to Butler.
Tray Jackson 6’7 (Detroit Western)– Jackson is the most intriguing unsigned senior size wise. The Detroit Western wing/big has an extremely versatile game. He possesses a strong outside jump shot as well as strong foot work and post moves on the block. He’s an offensive mismatch against most bigs in the state due to this versatility. Jackson had a strong spring and summer with The Family (EYBL). He currently holds offers 5+ offers from mid major D1 schools.
Bryce Washington 6’4 (Southfield Christian)– Washington’s basketball career is already filled with many impressive accolades, two coming in the beginning of his senior season. Washington has became his school’s all time leading scorer and received an offer from Pittsburgh. Washington is a very strong player from behind the perimeter. He also uses his lengthy wing span well in the passing lane on the defensive end and uses it to finish over defenders on the other end.
D’Juan Seal 6’4 (Detroit Pershing)– Seal is one of the top shot blockers in the state. His LeBron-like chase down blocks present his team with many transition scoring opportunities. Seal blew up this spring and summer when he competed with REACH Legends on the NY2LA circuit. Seal is extremely strong when penetrating but he is not afraid to pull it from beyond the arc. Seal holds multiple Division 2 offers.
Jacob Boonnyasith 6’3 (Jenison)– Boonyasith had an extremely impressive AAU season with Grand Rapids Storm and he has continued this strong play in his senior campaign where he has been putting up Westbrook-like numbers. Boonyasith is a very lethal shooter. He’s also extremely versatile. The Jenison guard is vey good with distributing the rock, especially in the drive and kick. Boonyasith holds Division 1 and 2 offers.
Jacob Polakovich 6’8 (Grand Rapids Catholic Central)– Polakovich is compiled with just about all the skills that any college coach would want. He is a strong rebounder with great court vision. He is lethal on the post at both ends of the floor with his good footwork and shot blocking ability. Polakovich is very gritty and has a nice mid range touch. Polakovich holds multiple Division 2 offers.
