As March Madness begins, the elite players in the state of Michigan have left their mark. February was a critical month as teams clinched league titles and prepared for the state playoffs. February saw the closest vote this season for Player of the Month.
Rashad Williams (2018, G, Wayne Memorial)
9% of the vote
The Cleveland State commit continues to flat out perform. He may be the most underrated star in Michigan, as he always shows up in big moments. The month of February saw Williams hit his scoring stride and put his team on his back offensively. With Williams leading the way, Wayne Memorial looks to make noise in the state playoffs.
Brandon Wade (2018, PG, Skyline)
19% of the vote
Wade is a special basketball player. In fact, he should be considered one of the best players to ever come out of Ann Arbor and probably the best since LaVell Blanchard wore a Pioneer jersey. In February, Wade led his Skyline team to an undefeated season and an SEC Red conference championship. The Duquesne commit has Skyline prepped for a run at the state championship.
David DeJulius (2018, PG, EEVP)
35% of the vote
DeJulius may not only be the top player in Michigan, he may be the most improved as well. His game continues to grow before our eyes and with him leading the charge, EEVP could be a legitimate threat in the playoffs this year. The UofM recruit is relentless when going to the bucket and thrives when playing with contact. He can score at multiple levels and is very efficient when running an offense. DeJulius was voted the Player of the Month in December and January.
Foster Loyer (2018, PG, Clarkston)
37% of the vote
The MSU commit joined a special group of players as the regular season came to a close: He has been discussed as one of the greatest and most legendary point guards to ever play in Michigan. While Loyer can score with the best of them, he may be remembered most as a quintessential floor general. In a recent win over West Bloomfield, Loyer suffered a partial meniscus tear in his left knee. In this game, Loyer managed to put up 25 points, grab 7 rebounds, and dish out 6 assists. His status for the state playoffs is unknown as of now. Regardless, Loyer ends the last regular season of his legendary career by being voted the February Player of the Month.
