2015 Guard Bakari Evelyn On The Move to Detroit Consortium

7 Jan

12460406-standardOnce rumored but now confirmed, and first reported by The Prep Ball Report and local talent scout Jeff McKinney, Class of 2015 point guard Bakari Evelyn has transferred from Class D Southfield Christian to Class C Detroit Consortium.  Evelyn, who already has division one offers as of now, will be eligible immediately for Consortium, because he moved, and ready to help the Cougars make a deep post season run.

The reason why Evelyn left Southfield Christian remains unclear.  He already won two state titles, and the Eagles were contenders to win another Class D state title this year, however, a potential reason for the transfer is Consortium’s star forward Josh Jackson.  Bakari played with The Family EYBL AAU team over the Summer, and Jackson has participated with them in the past.  With Josh being the number one player in Michigan and already having numerous high-major offers, the two playing together has the possibility to help raise each other’s recruiting situations, while winning at the same time.

Consortium, currently ranked number two in Class C behind Mt. Clemens, with the addition of Evelyn strengthen the depth at the guard position.  With the possibility of a starting lineup composing of seniors Ronald Booth, Malik Dawson, and Kenny Turner, with sophomore Jackson and junior Evelyn, there is no reason to think not the Cougars can make a run to the Breslin Center in March.  However, in order for Consortium to reach the final and if all chalk holds, Mt. Clemens and the Cougars will play each other in the state quarter finals at West Bloomfield.
