On to the PSL

Our next two top teams come from arguably, Michigan's top high school basketball conference, the Detroit PSL.

Detroit Pershing- Last year's Class A State Runner-Up is again talented enough to contend for a state title. Led by two Michigan State commits in Keith Appling a 6'2 scorer-supreme in the 2010 class, and 6'9 2009 C Derrick Nix, who is HUGE! The Doughboys could be the best team in Detroit. Supporting roles will be played beautifully by 6'0 2009 PG Dion Dismuke and 6'6 2010 Wing Juwan Howard, JR. Howard is a much improved player over the summer as he was excellent for the Michigan Mustangs 16s in Vegas. Dismuke, who toured with Detroit Powerhouse The Family this summer is as heady as they come at the PG spot. He will make or break this ball-club. Raymone McAfee, a 6'7 2010 F is an under the radar prospect that is primed to break out. He was a force with the Reach Legends program this Summer. 6'8 2009 C Tevin Conrad, just like his counterpart Derrick Nix is HUGE! Conrad, is a beast on the boards, and once he gets in better condition he will be a factor. Expect Pershing to be a force this upcoming season.

Detroit Southeastern-The Jungaleers are led by one of the premier guards in the state, 6'5 Soph Brandan Kearney. Brandan has the potential to be one of the best out of Detroit in a long time. He is one of the top shooters in Michigan, and at 6'5 he can also play PG. The D1 caliber talent doesn't stop there, 6'0 JR PG Anthony Fields is one of the top PG's in a amazingly talented 2010 class. Fields is being watched by Marquette, Oakland, Dayton, and others. 6'8 Soph PF Percy Gibson is also a high-major prospect. Kentucky is recruiting Gibson hard. Gibson is the most productive big in his class as of right now. The 2009 Class at Southeastern features quick 6'1 PG Kimmani Boynton, as well as inside bruiser 6'7 PF Kyle Bryant. Other 2010 prospects who will produce include Top 15 6'0 PG Carlos Carter and 6'7 Football All-American Will Gholston, 6'6 F Josh Lyles, is another 2010 player who transferred in and is expected to produce right away. Lyles was a factor with the King James Shooting Stars program this spring/summer. But the talent doesn't stop there. 6'1 2011 G Davonte Carter is one of the elite players in his class right now, at least Top 15 in the state; and as for potential top prospects look no further than 6'10 Soph C Darren Washington, with continued progress, he may end up going to a higher level college than expected. Also watch out for two 6'5 2012 F's Dayshawn Crim and Dexter Morton.
