Basketball recruiting often turns into a game of comparisons. One player reminds us of another player. Often times, we see an aspect of 1 prospect’s game that makes us think of another prospect. We’re going to look at the top 5 ranked players in the class of 2022 and find a player further down in the rankings that, in some way, reminds us of that top 5 individual. In other words:  The Top 5’s Twins.

Emoni Bates Emoni Bates 6'8" | SF Ypsi Prep | 2022 State #1 Nation MI (SF, Ypsi Prep)

Prep Hoops Michigan Ranking:  #1

And his twin - 

Andrew Fuquay Andrew Fuquay 6'7" | SF Detroit Pershing | 2022 State #NA Nation MI (SF, Detroit Pershing)

It’s tough to compare someone to the top prospect in the country, but Fuquay is my choice. They have similar height and build, and Fuquay is a solid finisher in Bates fashion. 

Ty Rodgers Ty Rodgers 6'6" | SF Grand Blanc | 2022 State #56 Nation MI (SF, Grand Blanc)

Prep Hoops Michigan Ranking:  #2

And his twin - 

Ty Ryske Ty Ryske 6'4" | SF Schoolcraft | 2022 State #NA Nation MI (SF, Schoolcraft)

Prep Hoops Michigan Ranking:  #72

Rodgers and Ryske have the size and strength needed to be special. They are both excellent finishing at the rim.

JaVaughn Hannah JaVaughn Hannah 6'4" | SG Orchard Lake St. Mary's | 2022 State #111 Nation MI (SG, Ypsi Prep)

Prep Hoops Michigan Ranking:  #3
