Walker Picks Kent State

Romulus 6’2″ shooting guard Jaylin Walker picked his college destination last week, deciding on the Golden Flashes of Kent State.  Walker’s lone offer he picked up during the Spring Evaluation Period, Jaylin was receiving interest across the MAC, A10, and even a few Big Ten Schools.  Walker is known for his athleticism.  His dunks have brought fans to their feet during Summer League and AAU only months ago.  But he’s also a quality shooter from three-point land with his feet set, with the capability to heat up quickly.  Still improving with ball skills, Walker overall is never going to back-down from anybody on either side of the court, and plays with a flare to his game.  With a big senior season for the Eagles, is Walker a dark horse in the Mr. Basketball voting?

Derek Murphy with GLIAC Offer Number 3

Warren Mott’s Derek Murphy now has Grand Valley, Ferris State, and Lake Superior State offers before his senior campaign starts.  He plans to take a few unofficial visits in the upcoming weeks, and is also gaining interest from some mid-major schools in the great lakes region.  A versatile 6’4″ wing, Murphy has the size and skill to exceed at the next level.  He’s a scorer that excels getting to the basket and either finishing or getting to the free-throw line.  Derek can also rebound the ball well for his position, and still working on a consistent perimeter outside jump shot.

Couple Big Time Visitors

Trevor Manuel took an official visit to Oregon for the football game vs. Michigan State, Henry Ford senior wing Josh Davis took a visit over the weekend to Western Michigan, and Grand Rapids Christian 2015 guard Deleon Brown took his official visit to Kent State.

Notable Transfers

Anthony Johnson, a 6’5″ wing 2016 wing formerly of Flint Beecher, has transferred down I-75 to Detroit Southeastern.  Adding depth to a team in need of impact players with the departure of a coach and two do it all seniors.

The ninth out-of-state transfer to hit Michigan was Romulus 6’4″ guard Blake Furcron to Elyria High School in Ohio after impressive showings at the Romulus Summer League.
