Carlton Brundidge – Commit

As mentioned earlier last week, Brundidge had 41 points in Southfield’s 87-59 season opening win versus Mount Clemens.

It’s a big week for Southfield as Brundidge will lead them versus state ranked Romulus on Tuesday and against Michigan State commitment Brandan Kearney and Detroit Southeastern on Saturday.

Trey Burke – Commit

Brundidge had a smooth 25 points on 8 of 11 (3-4 3pt) shooting to go along with seven assists, two steals, three blocks, and two rebounds in an 86-48 win over Mansfield. Northland will face Beechcroft on Tuesday and Whetstone on Friday

Glenn Robinson III  – Commit

Robinson had 24 points in Lake Central’s (2-1) loss to Crown Point. Joe Eberhardt provided a lengthy scouting report and video from the game.

JaVontae Hawkins

We already posted video and scouting information from Powers’ win over Ann Arbor Gabriel Richard.

Sherron Dorsey-Walker

Dorsey-Walker had 26 points in a 97-81 loss to Summit Christian in the Mr. Basketball Classic at Lansing Eastern.

Nick Stauskas

Nick was featured in this ESPN profile which discusses his journey to St. Mark’s. St. Mark’s is 4-0 and Stauskas continues to play well, most recently scoring 19 points. The New England Recruiting Report recently had a chance to watch Stauskas in action:

Sometimes overshadowed by the dominating inside-outside tandem of Tarczewski and Murphy, Stauskas showed off the versatile offensive skill-set that makes him a potential high-major prospect in his own right.  The 6’6” wing in the class of 2012 single-handedly broke the game open midway through the first half on Friday, culminating his own nine-point scoring spree with an emphatic two-hand dunk in transition.  Finishing with a game-high 19 points, Stauskas shot the ball smoothly from behind the arc, attacked  the rim aggressively from the wing, and got into passing lanes on the defensive-end to create steals that led directly to scores.

Jordan Hare

Hare had 17 points and 10 rebounds in a 50-36 victory over Mount Pleasant. However, on the tail end of back-to-back games Arthur Hill fell to De La Salle and Hare posted 12 points while battling foul trouble.

Sean Sheldon

Sheldon had 26 points in a loss to Suttons Bay and Michigan State commitment Dwaun Anderson. He also had 17 points in a 71-29 win over St. Mary earlier in the season.

Mitch McGary

We posted an interview last week with Mitch McGary, a big man likely to be in the 2012 class.

Khaliq Spicer

We’ve mentioned Spicer as a potential big man target in the class of 2012 but the wirey post player has a ways to go, according to this report we received after Robichaud’s loss to Lincoln Park. He had just 2points (no FGs), 7 rebounds, and three blocks. Here’s a brief scouting report from the inbox:

Strengths – Good leaper and is able to run the floor. Good form on FT show that he could possibly develop his jumper.
Weaknesses – Lacks strength with the ball, was to easily slapped out of his hands on rebounds. Lack a fluid offensive game because he doesn’t understand how to use his size.

Class of 2013 Notes

  • Adam

    I badly want Stauskas in the 2012 class. I think he is going to blow up on the recruiting scene now that he is playing for St. Mark’s. I have never been all that impressed with Hawkins and I haven’t seen enough of SDW to form an opinion about whether I like him or Stauskas more but all I know is I think Stauskas is a stud and would be awesome in Michigan’s offense

  • MAS

    I was at the Keener classic this Saturday. I really wanted to watch Ziegler play but unfortunately Ecorse (Michael Tally team) didn’t show so I didn’t get to watch him play. I was treated to an impromptu dunk contest between him and ___ Walters (6-9 2012). Ziegler won but Walters impressed. Ziegler is a legit 6-5 with solid frame and can really get up. If Haney doesn’t end up #1 in 2013 then Ziegler will.

    Morie Diane a freshmen for DCD had 14 vs. Saginaw going 4-4 from 3. Has great form and looks to be about 6-2 with long arms. He will be one to watch as some have him as the top 2014.

    Dominique Jackson 2013 (Tory brother) looked good for Saginaw even though he only scored 7. 6-2 with a strong frame and great athlete. He had an amazing block from behind on 6-6 Price as he attempted a dunk on a breakaway. He also showed solid form on his jumper as he hit one 3 pointers.

    • Paul

      I was @ the DCD/Saginaw game too. There were a lot of great athletes on the floor – playing @ a break neck pace. I agree re: Morie Diane – the DCD Freshman. Hopefully U of M is already recruiting him.

    What an awful rollout for the Big Ten’s new logo, divisions, and trophies. The whole thing looks like it was done by 5th graders!

    • mgocanada

      I fully agree. Re: divisions, “Legends” vs. “Leaders” seems like they’re putting UM in the “has-been” category, while a rising star like Wisconsin (for some reason the rival I hate the most… maybe it’s Bo Ryan’s gremlin face) gets to be a present-tense “leader”. They should have just called our division The West — it would be no less accurate and much less embarrassingly trite.

      Re: the logo, I was wondering how their graphic design geniuses were going to sneak a “12” into the word “Ten” but they just gave up and went back to 10, even though the conference added rather than subtracted a member. That was stupid.

    Hey Dylan, Is there any interest in sophomore James Young out of Troy? He’s a legit 6’7 lefty who’s averaging about 27 so far. Seems like the sophomore class in state is loaded.
