Mott Community College signs southwest Michigan standout Myles Busby

Posted: July 2, 2012 by Jared Field in JUCO, Mott

Mott Community College head coach Steve Schmidt went into the farthest corner of the lower peninsula to sign a promising high school guard with some upside potential.

Myles Busby, a 6-4 and 190-pound shooting guard from Niles High School, is among the top players in Michiana (yes, that’s what they call it down there). He’s one of a pretty impressive crop of guards coming through southwest Michigan including Dontel Highsmith and Josh Kozinski — a pair of D-1 locks.

Here’s what the South Bend Tribune said about Busby:

Busby was a big reason Niles finished 19-5 and won the Class A district title. The fourth-year regular averaged 13.1 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.3 steals. Busby was a 46 percent field goal shooter and hit 72 percent at the free throw line.

Busby scored 17 points in Niles’ district-opening victory over then two-time defending class A state champion Kalamazoo Central back in March. He was honorable mention class A all-state in his junior and senior seasons.

Busby joins an impressive 2012 recruiting class that is starting to emerge at Mott, including Chicago Curie’s Devin Foster, Holland’s Coreante Deberry, Flint Beecher’s Antuan Burks, Detroit King’s William Abbott and Toledo (Ohio) Springfield’s Chester McFadden.

      What is going on at Mott, they are losing Eason and Perry,their best two returning players and only returning 4 players from last year and 8 new players. I GUESS I WAS RIGHT AGAIN THAT LANSING IS GOING BEAT mott with no problem and LANSING IS GOING BE THE BEST TEAM IN MCCCA

      • Jared Field says:

        Ha. Have you looked at the new players?

        I do think Lansing has the second-best recruiting class in the state though. I don’t think there’s any question about that.
