The freshman class showed some serious talent at this years Prep Hoops Top 250 Expo. The group had some very good perimeter players in specific.
DJ Allison (5’11”, G, Kalamazoo Central)
Allison showed the state of Michigan what’s coming their way. He’s a high IQ player who, even at a young age, understands the game of basketball. At the Top 250, Allison showed that he is able to play both on or off the ball. He is a multilevel scorer who likes to push the ball in transition. Allison liked to be coached and was responsive at all times.
Thomas Dillard IV (6’1”, G, Kalamazoo Central)
Prep basketball fans in Michigan will get to know this name over the coming years. He is a well rounded athlete who carries a high knowledge of the game. Dillard IV is a tough player who expects the best out of himself. He can break down defenders with a jab step, but isn’t afraid to battle in the paint for rebounds. Dillard is a strong kid who is physically ready for high school basketball.
Maurice Sain (6’2”, G, Muskegon)
Sain is a player to keep your eyes on over the next four years. He combines size and strength with quickness and athleticism. Sain is tough to stop on the perimeter, especially when he gets going downhill. Sain had a quick first step with his right foot, and used it to create space.
Brady Titus (5’10”, G, Tri Unity Christian)
Titus was nothing short of spectacular at the Top 250. He was lightning fast with the ball in his hands. Titus effectively pushed tempo and thrived in the open floor. He finished at the rim with great body control, but could also pull up with a nice mid range jumper. Titus was aggressive on the defensive end, often picking up full court and forcing turnovers. Titus looked to have some Kobe Bufkin in him.
Derrick Voltz (6’1”, G, Carrollton)
Voltz is a high level athlete. He squeezed the camp in around his football commitments, and he certainly made an impression. Voltz is a strong kid with good size. He can play on or off the ball with effectiveness. Voltz is a multilevel scorer and is efficient with a low number of turnovers. He’s a solid rebounding guard as well.
