The David Barns Showcase took place last Saturday. It was a much anticipated event, and it sure didn’t disappoint. There was talent at all levels and in all classes in the gym that day.

Almost any coach could have found what they were looking for at the David Barns Showcase. That’s what made it so difficult to name a best player in the gym from that day. Guys like  Anthony Ribel Anthony Ribel 6'2" | SG Traverse City Central | 2024 State MI  and  Gio Lutfy Gio Lutfy 6'2" | SG Lutheran North | 2024 State MI for example, and many more, put on terrific shows at the showcase. 

After much debating over all the talent, performances, and feedback from the event, I finally made a decision. Im going to name  Adam Ayrault Adam Ayrault 6'4" | CG Grosse Pointe North | 2023 State MI , from Grosse Pointe North, as best in the gym last Saturday at the David Barns Showcase. 

Ayrault just looked like he was at a different level. He has the intangibles of a high upside prospect including good positional size, solid athleticism, and a high basketball IQ. Ayrault may have caught some by surprise as he hasn’t been on the grassroots scene as much. Many of us were waiting for a day like last Saturday, and it definitely arrived. 

Ayrault flashed an impressive skill set, to say the least, at the David Barns
