Inside Prep Sports/By TJ Kelley
Just over 30 days into Michigan's high school season and it's time for reflection as there have been many standouts. Here's a look at five unsigned seniors who have made their mark and on their way to scholarship offers:
Pakiya Ellis (Detroit Allen Academy) Ellis is puttin gup numbers at a huge clip topping out at 40 with a win over Fraser in the Motor City Roundball Classic. A couple points off the court and he has Division One schools with paperwork in hand.
Kenny Goins (Warren Mott) Another player who has consistently produced, played his way to a Division One scholarship with a 20-point and thirteen rebound perfomance in the Motor City Roundball Classic in front of Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Dartmouth and Niagra. All are close to pulling the trigger for the Class President with the 4.0 gpa and 29 ACT. Dartmouth and Niagra were back on Monday to see him put up another double-double.
Marq'ywell Jackson (Detroit E. English Village) He's been a top ten player in Michigan since he was a freshman and he's put up numbers througout his senior season that has drawn offers from Long Beach State to Rhode Island with Providence the latest to show interest. Another Motor City Roundball Classic MVP in a win over Toledo Rogers.
Yante Maten (Bloomfield Hills) One of the hottest names not only in the Midwest, but across the country as he's posted a couple of triple-doubles-one in a late game of the Motor City Roundball Classic where he was the game's MVP vs. Chicao Hyde Park. On Friday, Virginia Tech was in to see him post 22 and 21 in a win over Southfield.
Kyle Steigenga (Holland Christian) Tucked away along Lake Michigan, the name Steigenga rings thoughout the country as coaches say, "Any relation to Matt?" He's a do all player and a 24 point and nine rebound performance can be considered the norm for this versatile athlete with a 4.0 gpa that few know of outside of the 616 and 231 area codes.
