Yesterday we looked at the state of Minnesota and this morning we slide over to Michigan where they, like all the rest of the states, have some talented 2021 prospects still on the board.  Front and center in that conversation is PG Keyon Menifield Jr. of Beecher High School in Michigan.

Equipped with a long wiry 6-2 155 pound plus length frame, Menifield Jr. is a potential steal for the right program.  A Mr. Basketball candidate in the state of Michigan, Menifield Jr. is a fluid perimeter talent with an ability to score at multiple levels.  He handles the ball well, he sees the floor well, he can score off the bounce, he has a solid pull-up off the dribble, he can knock down the trey ball, and he has the ability to attack the rim and finish through traffic.  In transition he sees the floor well and he has an ultra-quick burst that allows him to push the tempo and get downhill with success.  Mix in a desire to win, the ability to be disruptive defensively, and an ability to fill the box score with steals, rebounds, etc. and you have the recipe for a potential diamond in the rough that simply needs to get the opportunity to take off.

So many young men of lost out on opportunities during this COVID-19 pandemic and Menifield Jr. is yet another example of that.  He currently holds an offer from Cleveland State.  He can play and has shown an ability to play at a high level and Division 1 or high caliber Division 2 schools in need of a lead guard need to take a peek into the state of Michigan and watch him closely as he has the potential to be a steal at the next level.

He plays for the UTS Elite program during the grassroots travel season.
