Monster of the Metro: Lapeer West’s Zeshawn Parker-Jones

Posted: May 16, 2011 by Jared Field in High School

LANSING, Michigan— Don’t buy the hype; buy the hyphen. A name you should know for the future has one.

Zeshawn Parker-Jones, a sophomore at Lapeer West, absolutely dominated the U-16 bracket at the CDBA Bankhoops Classic in Lansing over the weekend.

Parker Jones, a 6-3 forward, scored at will in all seven games for the U-16 Mid-Michigan Lakers (GLH’s home team). He led the Lakers to a 6-0 record before falling to ACB in the championship final.

In an 87-point outburst at Lansing Sexton High School against the GR Storm, Parker-Jones had 27 points, 15 rebounds and a dunk. He had five rebounds in the game’s first three minutes.

Parker-Jones scored a total of 68 points in the tournament’s final three games. He was named to the all tournament team alongside point guard J.D. Tisdale (Flint Northern) who also had a tremendous tournament.

Parker-Jones, along with West’s sophomore point guard Cullen Turczyn, may well be the best guard-forward combination in the Flint Metro League next season.

Parker-Jones, originally from the Detroit area, is a college football prospect as well. Arguably the best wide receiver prospect in the FML. He has tremendous hands, runs the floor and can hit from the elbow in with tremendous accuracy.

He’s one to watch this season.
