MVP Aaron Overhiser 6-6 Jr Fennville
He may have removed the shoulder pads from his football game the previous night, but certainly not the chip on his shoulder. Overhiser was the shortest player in his drill group by a couple inches. His answer? Go after every ball like Baby Ben Wallace, and try to dunk the ball every time he touched it. He was in attack mode all day long, from the opening drill to third game. Could actually do more than just finish on the move, made some passes. "Grabbed every rebound!," a coach said. "Best rebounder in camp even though undersized compared to other bigs," a coach said. "Had the best work ethic in the drills and the games all day. Nice post game, developing his outside game. Tried to dunk everything in drills around the basket. One of the toughest kids I coached at camp. Want him on my team every time."
Deleon Brown 6-3 Jr Grand Rapids Christian
He was the top 2015 guard at the 2012 Underclassman Camp, and now repeats the feat at the All-State Camp. Plays like Detroit Douglass' Dayton commitment Darrell Davis, a smooth, smart true combo guard -- not just a guy called a combo guard because they're really a short 2G, but someone equally competent at either spot. Plays a really heads up game, looking pass first off of consistent penetration. Good hands. Even though he was one of the most talented players at the camp, he was also one of the most unselfish. Played hard too, hustling down loose balls. A lefty who gets good elevation on the J, though it didn't drop when I saw it. Poised for a huge season at GR Christian with Drake Harris matriculating to U-M.
Josh Harris 6-6 Jr New Haven
It's hard to imagine many in the MAC Gold able to match up with this long, versatile athletic wing forward. With improvement in strength and attacking, above-the-rim guard game, will be a legit target come the spring recruiting season.
"6-6 wing player with a huge upside!," a coach said. "Handled the ball and shot it well. Could develop into a really nice player for New Haven."
Deyonta Davis 6-8 Jr Muskegon
Showed why he's one of the hottest recruits in the country, with offers most recently from Michigan State, Iowa State, Rhode Island and Memphis.
"Clearly one of the most talented players in the state, he dominated at will," a coach said. "Is that will to dominate strong enough is the only question. Super long and bouncy, he easily dunked on 6-11 Seth Dugan off of a loose ball turned alleyoop. I want to see passion and fire on the court, but for now talent is doing enough."
Darek Ditto 6-4 Jr Mattawan
He's a bit young for the Rush Limbaugh demographic, but if he keeps playing like this there will be a bunch of college coaches turned Dittoheads. The good grades don't hurt either. Ditto had a triple-double in one of the games.
"Plays like Matt Brust from St. John's back in the day," a coach said. "Rugged sob. Whatever is needed to be done for his team to be successful, he does it. Rebound, defend, pass, hit a big shot. Not a '10' in anything but heart, but anywhere from 5-7 in all other categories."
Seth Dugan 6-11 Jr Otsego
He's visited Wisconsin and will Iowa in a couple weeks, appropriately enough for the Big Farmer.
"Just a huge, huge kid that showed a nice touch all around the basket," a coach said. "Just like most other kids that grow swiftly, he'll need to get two things: food and weights! He has a big upside and it will be interesting to see his development over the next year. At nearly 7-feet, he will be highly regarded for the next level."
