Posted On: 10/19/18 2:09 PM

Here are some standout players from the Muskegon area.  Located on the shores of Lake Michigan this area is known for grooming great athletes.  This year should be no different in the basketball world.

TJ McKenzie 6-3 Sr North Muskegon: A protype one-on-one ankle breaker player.  He has a quick-release and drives over and through smaller guards. Good athlete who sees the floor and instills a sense of toughness for North Muskegon. 

Kalil Stimage 6-1 So Muskegon Reeths-Puffer: He will be a bright star for the Rockets this year.  His end-to-end quickness should make competitors reel.   His decision making should make up for his youth.  Decent outside shot to go along with his dribble penetration.  A work in progress but should be exciting.

Eonte Tornes 5-9 Sr Muskegon: His shot selection has improved and put up numbers when needed. Can score it from all three levels and is the kind of foul shooter you want handling it late in games. His aggressive defensive skills and motor should privide The Big Reds with a big boast.

Jared Dugener, 5-10 So. – Muskegon Catholic Central: The point guard uses his speed to open up the transition game and get to the rim. He plays with a nice confidence to his game. The floor general has a nice quick first step which allows him to get into the paint and finish. He can play the one or the two on both sides of the ball.

Jarvis Walker 6-2 Jr Muskegon: Recently received an early offer from Grand Valley State. He’s long and muscular known to  finish at the rim.  Good communicater defensively and effective whether isolated or using ball screens. Communicates like an upperclassman should on defense. Makes the right passing decisions. Over the next two years would may see him develop into a D1 prospect.

Brant Zeerip, Sr.. – 6-0 Sr.  Muskegon Western Michigan Christian: A slashing guard with high energy.  His competive nature elevates his teammates.  Has a knack for lulling an underestimating defender to sleep then breaking off a quick shot and getting to the lane to score.  His speed and aggression with the ball put pressure on the defense. 

James Gilbert 6-3 Sr Muskegon Mona Shores: A slashing wing forward who gives Mona Shores some attitude and toughness getting into the lane. Nose for the ball on the offensive glass. This year is shaping up to be his team with the loss of Jarvis Walker to Muskegon.  

DeAirrus Ware 6-3 Sr Muskegon: Has an explosive first step and covers a lot of distance both horizontally and vertically in an instant. A tremendous rebounder who gets points off the glass as well as good passing instincts. Has offers from multiple D2 schools.

Keontae Barnes, 5-10  So. – Muskegon Orchard View:  He is young and one of the most intriguing long-term prospects to keep an eye on this season. A good defender who is versatile and full of upside. He’s sneaky skilled and can’t wait to see how his game develops over the next three years.
