It’s simple, really. Any freshman that can make varsity must be good — really good. It takes the thinking variable out of the player evaluation equation.
I’ve seen some really good statewide freshmen this year, including Lansing Eastern’s Charles Tucker (he’s the best), Detroit Pershing’s Kahil Felder and Flint Carman-Ainsworth’s Denzel Watts, who has been compared to Mateen Cleaves.
One name that’s probably missing is Flint Northern’s JD Tisdale. He’s really good.
