Last weekend was the first time since 2019 that college coaches were out in person for an April NCAA Certified Spring Evaluation Event. Many top events across the country saw many student-athletes take advantage and perform well. Below is a breakdown of some of the top players from the Mitten that has garnered some attention over the past week.

One of the biggest sleepers in Michigan is 2023 6'5" Desrae Kyle out of Benton Harbor HS; she made her first Boo Williams Invitational appearance last weekend. She caught the eye of many schools, including Nebraska-Omaha, which offered her a scholarship.
