These are the most underrated seniors in the state.
(Macomb Dakota High School): Rollins is the most underrated graduating senior in the state because of his ability to get to his spot and convert efficiently. He has an easy pull-up mid-range jumper, and can get to the rim and finish through contact against big men. The 6’3 combo guard is one of the most complete players in the state as he has risen to the 8th ranking. He has committed to Toledo over Akron, Central Michigan, and Drexel.
(Saline High School): Yaklich, first and foremost, is a downhill driver. He likes to attack the basket and is able to finish in a number of ways, as well as hit open shooters on the perimeter. Even with offers from Washington State (preferred walk-on), Detroit Mercy, and Saginaw Valley State, the 6’5 combo guard remains undecided. “I think it’s hard to say right now when I will commit,” Yaklich told me. “I am still just taking it day by day.”
(Forest Hills Central): Scholler is headed to Ferris State, as he chose the Bulldogs over Northwood University and Hillsdale College. The 6’4 combo guard makes great decisions out of the pick-and-roll and can knock down 3-pointers if his defenders go under the screen. However, the best part of Scholler’s game might be his passing. He has great vision in both the half court and in transition. He is the 25th ranked senior in Michigan.
(Muskegon High School): Nash is the lowest ranked player of the five, at 58th in the senior class, but he has really good jumping ability from the point guard position, especially for a 5’10 point guard. He can also finish around the rim with both hands and has a smooth shooting form from the outside. Nash will attend Saginaw Valley State next season, turning down an offer from Northern Michigan. He should be getting quality minutes in a couple of years.
(Glen Lake High School): Hazelton is the tallest player on this list at 6’7, which will help him at the next level, as he also moves onto Ferris State. He is the 24th ranked senior in the state and has the potential to be an elite 3-point shooter in college. Although, he might have to speed up his outside shot as the defenders get a little quicker and longer in college. Hazelton also has great touch on his floater. He had a second offer from Saginaw Valley State.
