Check out some more of our Power Prospects Top 250 below!
Bowers is simply one of the best players in the state this year. She’s one of the top 3 point shooters that you’ll see in Michigan. Bowers is a seasoned veteran that has played in countless number of big games and always seems to rise to the top in those matchups. She’s an excellent leader that can help to carry her team to high levels of success. Bowers will be headed to Northwood following her high school career and my bet is that she will see tremendous success at the next level as well.
VanTimmeren is a rising star and an elite young forward prospect. She has a ton of upside in her game and the development of her skill set for the rest of her high school days will be very exciting to watch. VanTimmeren is a very well polished player for her grade she plays with a strong understanding of the fundamentals. She can score from multiple levels and can play inside-out as well as outside-in. This makes her an extremely tough player to defend.
Utomi has really developed into an elite wing prospect in the state. She came in to high school basketball with a ton of potential and she has put in the work needed to attain that greatness. Utomi has the ability to play comfortably both in transition and in a half court set. She can score in a 1 on 1 matchup, but doesn’t need to be ball dominant to get hers. She’s just as capable of a scorer doing within the natural flow of the offense.has that winning demeanor that can’t be taught.
Wells is a smooth athlete that seems to slide into directional changes with ease. She’s a true 3 level scorer that can create space with her handles and movement and pull up for a jumper at any time. I really like her mid range game as is and her potential to continue to develop it a huge tool in her game. Wells does a great job scanning the floor and reading game situations. This allows her to find mismatches and attack them, whether it be with her own matchup or seeing where her teammates have an advantage.
Woods is an elite talent that will certainly rise up this list in coming years. She’s a true downhill player on the offensive end and is definitely at her best when going straight at the defense with the ball in her hands. Woods has a combination of ball handling, physical toughness, and strength that makes her extremely hard to stop when she gets momentum. She plays with that same aggressive style on the defensive end. Woods can get in the ball handlers face and create tons of pressure.
This is tough. Legitimately, she’s a rankable prospect on a national scale in my opinion. She’s another prime example of the oustanding shooters that can be found on the west side of the state. Zeinstra isn’t just a good shooter, she’s in the process of rewriting record books. She recently committed to Butler University. Trust me Bulldog faithful, you’ll be very glad to have her when she arrives. Zeinstra is a gamer that will continue to score big buckets in big moments.
Let me start by saying this – If you put Baker in the top 10 in this list, not only wouldn’t I argue, I wouldn’t even bat an eye. This young lady is an elite athlete with speed and ball skills for days. While she can play a very fast paced game and is a big time threat in the open floor, she also plays with control and finishes at the bucket with tremendous balance and awareness. Baker has been seen matching up with and starring against some of the best in the state at past Top 250’s.
Dykstra is one of the top veteran guards in the state. She’s a selfless player that’s willing to set her teammates up for success, knowing that when they do great, it will come back around. Dykstra uses her handles and ability to find lanes as a way to make plays. She can get to the rim in most instances, but if the defense rotates, she will find her teammates in scoring positions. Dykstra is truly underrated as a playmaking passer. She’s headed to Toledo after high school.
Anyone notice a trend with Dykstra’s and the ability to pass? I’ll bet nobody ever has to ask to please pass the gravy at the dinner table. Kidding aside, there might not be a more accurate passer that we’ll see this high school season. Dykstra does a great job utilizing angles with her passes and she can squeeze them into tight spaces. Her passes are soft with touch and extremely catchable for her teammates. Dykstra has big time talent and will be fun to watch this season.
Hagemann is a tremendously talented player and probably holds as much upside as any player in her class. By the time it’s all said and done, she could easily be top 5 on this list. You could see the growth in her confidence and her overall game as the summer played on. Hagemann has outstanding court vision and recognizes her teammates intentions when they move. She can hit cutters on the move on a dime and can use whatever type of pass is best for getting the ball where it needs to go.
