Here are some boys hoopsters who have found recent colleges to continue their respective careers on the hardwood next year:

Billy Thomas (North Farmington G) – The best shooter in the state signed with Oakland University this week. Vastly improved overall game, probably the MVP of the OAA in ’16 (along with RH Adams’ Mr. Basketball candidate Spencer Littleson), definition of a PRIMETIME PLAYER, natural fit for TEAM KAMPE in the Grizzlies’ Den

Milan Williams (Birmingham Detroit Country Day G/F) – Long, lanky, hungry workhorse inked with Colgate University of the Patriot League. Unlimited upside, quietly punched the clock for the ‘Jackets as a starter on the wing the past two years, impresses with his hoop IQ and tenacity

Anton Lukaj (Walled Lake Central G) – Pure game-changer in the backcourt signed with Rochester College this week. Complete steal at the NAIA level, DII-level talent headed for possible NAIA All-American status (YEAH, I SAID IT!!!) in the future, can do it all at either guard spot, total warrior, prototypical gym rat, SIR-GRIND-A-LOT SPECIAL with finesse and flare
