Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

A Mid-Summer Night's Baller Dream

THE OC Mid-SUMMER Dirty Dozen – Top 12 Boys Prep Hoopsters in the area
1 James Young (Troy) – The Chosen One….'Nuff said!!
2 Jon-Jon Williams (Southfield-Lathrup) – Committed to the MAC but is a Big 10-caliber baller!!
3 Paris Bass (Birmingham Seaholm) – Biggest jump from this time last year, is a genuine D1 steal!!
4 Yante Maten (Bloomfield Hills Lahser) – Best post prospect in the area
5 A. Price-M. Diane-E. Sumner (Birmingham DCD) – Dynamic and versatile 'Jackets backcourt ready to erupt in 2013!!!!
6 Bakari Evelyn-De Marco White (Southfield Christian) – Best inside-outside tandem in Class D ranks in the whole state, both these guys are D1 recruits and will lead a serious repeat charge for the defending state champs
7 Jermaine King (Ferndale) – Will be the Paris Bass of 2013, monster leap from sophomore to junior year….pure athlete with added range from deep
8 Miroslav Jaksik (Walled Lake Western) – Rare potential will bloom this winter!!!
9 Maceo Baston Jr. (Birmingham DCD) – Should be higher on this list….might be the local Class of 2014's No. 1 prospect before its all said and done on the upcoming season
10 Khalil Malone-Quincy Norman (Waterford Mott) – Best inside-outside tandem in the KLAA, will give TEAM JAYSON a legit shot at repeating as league and district champs
11 (tie) Ahkemji Williams (RH Adams) – Turning himself into a D1 recruit this summer with hard work and savvy playmaking
11 (tie) Jordan Dasuqi (Clarkston) – Nicknamed 'The Milk Man' 'cause this kid ALWAYS delivers the goods on the court!!! The quintessential Wolfpack guard with a little 'Yaktown flair to his game
12 Garrett Ross (Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes) – Could be the OC's top two-sport SUPERSTAR for the incoming senior class….and he's at a Class D school, that's really saying something!!!
