Milan Duo on The Rise

29 Sep

High school and AAU teammates Nick Perkins and Latin Davis of Milan High School have both risen on the Michigan’s 2015 rankings list over the past few months during the summer playing for The Program Elite 16u.  Now, heading into their junior season’s, scholarship offers from colleges are starting to roll in.

images-1Perkins, a 6’8″ forward who already has offers from MAC schools Toledo and Buffalo, recently received an offer from Kent State after the Golden Flashes stopped in at Milan for a workout.  Nick is a big bodied 4 that is hard to contain down low in the post once he gets in a rhythm offensively.  He has a beautiful left handed hook shoot, moves well horizontally and fights well for position on rebounds, and competes hard on both sides of the floor.   Perkins brings a high motor and intensity, and will become harder to defend when his right hand gets as developed as his left.

images-2Latin, the 5’10” point, received his first offer from Kent State after receiving interest from several Horizon and MAC schools.  Davis is another competitor for Milan that plays bigger than he looks.  The shifty, unselfish point guard is a coaches dream on the floor.  He is always looking to set up other teammates, whether it be on the break or in the half-court set.  But Latin can score as well.  He is not afraid to drive the lane against bigger players down low, likes to score in bunches, and has a quick first step to get around defenders.  Improved his jump shot tremendously over the Summer which kept defenders honest.

The Big Reds fell to Romulus last year in the regionals, but look for Perkins and Latin to both have big seasons and potentially lead Milan to the Breslin Center to compete for a Class A championship.
