There is too much talent that deserves to be mentioned, especially in a tough year like the one that we are experiencing. With a shortened season especially, you never know who might rise to the top. That being said, I’m going to give you 5 under the radar players that could make the type of run this season that puts them in contention for Mr. Basketball.

The talent is there for the Grand Valley State University commit. I know that I personally fielded multiple inquiries from D1 coaches in regards to Day. He’s a versatile forward that can defend and compete in the paint, but also handle and draw the defense away from the rim.
