Presents For College Coaches

Presents For College Coaches – Part 2

Chris CaytonChrisCayton5'11" | PGAnn Arbor Skyline | 2021StateMI (2021, PG, Ann Arbor Skyline)

It’s been nice to see Cayton pick up some offers lately, because he’s deserved it for a long time. He can flat out lead from the point. He’s a more than dependable ball handler that break pressure on his own. Cayton can be trusted with the ball in his hands in late game situations.

Will SmytheWillSmythe6'4" | SGOrchard Lake St. Mary's | 2021StateMI (2021, SG, Orchard Lake St, Mary’s)

Smythe has absolutely huge summer and fall. He sent a message to scouts and college coaches, and his message was loud and clear. Smythe is, without a doubt, one of the best all around shooters in the state. His stock has risen by a ton over the last few months.

He’s so explosive with the ball in his hands. He can start and stop, and go with either hand. In my opinion, he’s one of the most exciting perimeter players in Michigan. Lovejoy can break down almost any defender in a 1-on-1 situation. Kobe HaglundKobeHaglund6'3" | PGWest Ottawa | 2022StateMI (2022, PG, West Ottawa) Haglund saw his game really stand out last high school season, and all the way through grassroots season. His offensive game and ability to get buckets has grown exponentially over the last year. Haglund has a lot of exciting basketball ahead of him. Tyran ThomasTyranThomas6'2" | SGNorthview | 2023StateMI (2023, SG, Northview) Thomas really unleashed his potential during grassroots and showcase seasons. He’s a terrific athlete that doesn’t stay glued to the floor. Thomas is bouncy and active under the rim, which creates more scoring opportunities. Sonny WilsonSonnyWilson6'0" | PGUD Jesuit | 2023State#44NationMI (2023, PG, UD Jesuit) Wilson gets the ball up the court quickly, using both his handles and the pass to advance it. The ball doesn’t stick to his hands, as he makes quick decisions and keeps the ball moving. In my opinion, Wilson has a very high ceiling.
