DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. – The state of Michigan boasts of a number of talented prospects and many of those individuals drove through a 10-inch snow storm to play at Robichaud High School on Saturday. Very quickly the Best of Michigan Holiday Classic became the premier high school event in the state, which is doubly important with travel restrictions not allowing these teams to compete nationally. A number of talented teams played in front of 20-plus college coaches. Here is our first look at the top performers from Saturday.

Marte Grays (Detroit, Mich.), Detroit King High School – 2014

The 6-foot-2 forward showed why ranked her No. 117 in the ELITE 150 for the class of 2014. The aggressive yet versatile forward snatched rebounds and knocked down jumpers from the perimeter. The DePaul signee has the skills that will make her future coach, Doug Bruno, very happy to employ next season in Big East competition. DePaul assistant coach Candis Blankson took in the action and saw Grays lead her Detroit King team to a victory over Arbor Prep.

Lashai Geeter (River Rouge, Mich.), Detroit King High School – 2014

Geeter showed her high-powered motor on Saturday evening versus Arbor Prep. The 5-11 forward bullied her way around the paint and left her opponents at a loss as to how to stop her. Geeter specializes in rebounding on both ends and is a threat to finish at the rim off the drive. Her physical play is impressive and should instantly translate next season in the Atlantic Sun Conference as she has signed to play for the Hatters of Stetson. Stetson assistant coach Kenny Anderson was on hand to watch Geeter beast her way to a victory at the Holiday Classic.

Micah Robinson (Ann Arbor, Mich.), Huron High School – 2014

The 5-8 point guard, who signed with Eastern Michigan this fall, showed why she projects to be an impact player for the Eagles next season. Robinson, who is blessed with great length and an explosive crossover, found ways to create space in the halfcourt versus Benton Harbor on Saturday evening. Perhaps the most underrated aspect of Robinson’s game is her ability to guard the basketball on the defensive end. Her long arms and quick feet help keep the opposing guards in check. Her abilities on both ends helped her Huron team gain a victory in one of the premier games of Best of Michigan Holiday Classic.
