Unknowns and Undervalued

Posted On: 11/29/19 9:35 AM

The day after Thanksgiving is famous for 1 thing:  Shopping! There are sales everywhere for shoppers to take advantage of. College coaches are always 'shopping' for players that are good for their program and will help them win games.

Here are some juniors that will make college coaches feel like they've found a bargain when shopping for players on the day after Thanksgiving.

Kobe Bufkin (2021, 6'4", CG, Grand Rapids Christian)

Prep Hoops Michigan Ranking:  #1

There wasn't a faster rising prospect in Michigan, or maybe even the midwest. Bufkin has established himself as a top 100 prospect in the country. He's a smooth shooting lefty that can create his own looks at the rim. Bufkin should have a list of power 5 D1's seeking his service.

Ty Fortney (2021, 6'8", PF, Taylor Trillium)

Prep Hoops Michigan Ranking:  #8

Fortney shot up the rankings after an incredible grassroots season. He's long and athletic, exploding off the ground even from a standing position. Fortney is a powerful finisher and excels in transition. College coaches need to see one of the top post prospects in the state. 

Simon Wheeler (2021, 5'10", PG, Ypsilanti-Lincoln)

Prep Hoops Michigan Ranking:  #9
