Class A Pre-season Top 20

4 Dec

A lack of separation from top to bottom makes Class A very interesting this winter.

Class A player of the year: Xavier Tillman Grand Rapids Christian

  1. Clarkston– A well balanced roster throughout allow the Wolves to throw a variety of line-ups at opponents.
  2. U of D Jesuit– Losing Mr. Basketball hurts, however, the Cubs have the best front-court combo in the class.
  3. Grand Rapids Christian– The Eagles now have a full year to get accumulated to each other and build chemistry with three division one players in the starting line-up.
  4. Macomb Dakota– The Cougars eye another trip to the Breslin.
  5. Belleville– The time is now for the Tigers’ talented junior class.
  6. Kalamazoo Central– Not as deep as in years past, but always find a way to win games.
  7. Detroit East English– Can score and run with any team in state, the key will be defense and rebounding.
  8. East Lansing– Following an undefeated regular season last year, the Trojans are now amongst the state’s strongest teams returning basically everybody.
  9. Muskegon- The Big Reds can always be penciled in for a deep Class A run.
  10. Detroit Western– Lose a great deal from last year but at the same time gain a lot.
  11. Saginaw– It’s been a minute since the Trojans made it to the Breslin, three years to be exact.  Not typical from a Trojan perspective.
  12. Wayne Memorial– Solid core that has been built from the ground-up.
  13. Detroit King– A dark horse contender for the PSL championship.
  14. Romulus– The model of consistency for every team in the state for the last 15 years.
  15. Ann Arbor Huron– A team that has played together for a very long time usually wins a lot.
  16. Ypsilanti– Never count out the Grizzlies despite what was lost from last year’s team.
  17. Crestwood– An under the radar team that with the right match-up could catch a higher ranked team napping.
  18. North Farmington– Amauri Hardy gets buckets.
  19. Detroit Cass Tech– This senior class does lack experience since playing varsity since sophomores.  Extremely deep at guard.
  20. Davison– Crack the top twenty due to an interesting transfer.
