The class of 2021 is loaded with talented point guards. Not only are they good, but there is Division 1 potential very deep into the position. Going into their sophomore season, many of these point guards are ready to make their mark on Michigan high school basketball.
Kobe Bufkin (6’4”, Grand Rapids Christian)
Bufkin has the size and skills. He’s a physically strong player who makes Division 1 moves to the basket. Bufkin is a complete player who can hunt buckets.
Simon Wheeler (5’10”, Ferndale)
Wheeler has the looks of a Division 1 point guard. He’s got to be one of the quickest players in Michigan. Wheeler has a great crossover move that he can take to either side.
Ethan Emerzian (6’0”, Rochester Adams)
Emerzian is a Division 1 type leader on the floor. He has excellent body control and is a dangerous shooter. Emerzian can run the show on the break or in transition.
Tyson Davis (5’10”, Goodrich)
Davis is a Division 1 athlete. He is incredibly fast and smooth, but also shows solid fast twitch muscle movements. Davis is excellent when finishing at the rim.
Blake Lund (6’0”, Linden)
Lund has a skill set and work ethic that screams Division 1 potential. He’s a disciplined player and hard worker. Lund is a top notch three point shooter who’s not afraid to have the ball in his hands in big moments.
Keyon Menifield (5’9”, Flint Beecher)
Menifield is tough as nails in typical Flint point guard fashion. He can play in the half court or transition and is an accurate passer. Nobody can doubt that he’s another Flint guard with Division 1 skills.
Keon Henderson (5’9”, Detroit Renaissance)
Henderson is the type of player that’s in the gym working when the bright lights are off. He has good handles and uses his entire body to find space when there looks to be none. Henderson is a potential Division 1 floor general who makes his teammates better.
Marcus Wourman (5’10”, East Lansing)
Wourman has quietly emerged as a top notch talent. He’s a force on the ball defensively and is a good distributor on the offensive end. Wourman is another East Lansing kid that we could see wearing a Division 1 jersey someday.
TJ Barnes (5’10, Grandville)
Barnes has performed at every single venue this summer. He’s a skilled player who likes to be coached. Barnes can score and distribute and has the talent to be a D1 recruit someday.
Trevor Smith (6’1”, Stoney Creek)
Smith is a very steady and consistent player. He’s a leader on defense and is notorious for making hustle plays. Smith has the skill set and work ethic to get Division 1 looks.
