By Keith Wade @wadesworld32, 06/28/24, 7:45AM EDT


East Lansing, MI: The Michigan State Team Camp raised the standard for team camps with a big time stage, big time setting, and big time format. Laurel High School, Ohio, won the Green Bracket, and Muskegon High School won the White Bracket. Here are the top 10 players I was able to see on Wednesday, Day One of the camp!!!

Imani Johnson 2025 Guard Detroit Renaissance HS
Imani is a big guard who was solid all day. She did a great job handling the rock creating off the bounce and using her physicality to attack the hoop. She also rebounded the ball and locked up on defense.

Kassidy Cain 2028 PG Detroit Renaissance HS
Kass was all over the floor for Renaissance. She ran the show, showed an elite handle, and was super effective playing off the ball screen, making the right read, and dropping some sweet dimes. What impressed me the most was the way she competed on the defensive end. Not even in High School yet, Kass backs down from no one applying pressure on the ball and jumping passing lanes, creating transition opportunities.

Mariah Sain 2026 Guard Muskegon HS
Mairah was big time Thursday. She was a blur on offense and was all over the floor on defense. She made some incredible plays off the dribble, getting to the hoop and finishing through contact. Mariah is fun to watch, she mixes great athleticism with a solid skill set to dominate on the perimeter. Her electric play led Muskegon to the White Bracket Championship. CAMP CHAMPION

Kendyl Smith 2026 PG Flint Powers HS
Kendyl was great today. She shot the ball extremely well from deep; she played downhill, attacking the basket and using her speed and physical style to finish at the hoop. Kendyl was all over the floor, battling for boards, fighting for loose balls, and showing great leadership.

Charlotte Miller 2025 Guard Father Gabriel Richard HS
Charlotte did everything today to help get her team to the championship game only to come up short against a tough Laurel team. She shot the ball from all over the floor, hitting threes from deep, knocking down the mid-range, and getting to the basket. She had some sweet passes leading to buckets for teammates, and she took the challenge on Defense, battling against some of the best in the camp. (Ferris State Commit)

Zariya McCrary 2028 Wing Saginaw Heritage HS
Zariya is a long, athletic youngster who was aggressive all day, getting in the lane, scoring the rock, and using her great size and length to rebound, push in transition, and finish.  Only a 2028 She showed a nice feel for the game and competed at a high level.

Elisha Dykstra 2025 PG West Catholic HS
Elisha is a big guard who hangs her hat on being able to do a little bit of everything on the floor, and today was no different. She scored the ball at all three levels, ran the show, attacked off the bounce, created easy attempts for her teammates, and covered the other team’s best player. Elisha is one of the top 5 players in the state, and her versatility and competitive drive will help West catholic win a lot of games this year.

Tristan Williams Guard 2026 Laurel HS (OH)
Tristan was on fire to start the day, going 5-5 from deep in game one, and was super aggressive, attacking the hoop all day. She has a nice handle with a deceptively quick first step. She made a living scoring through contact.  CAMP CHAMPION!

Sydney Ferguson 2028 Wing Laurel HS (OH)
Sydney is a long, talented wing. She stood out all day with her steady play on both ends of the floor. She exploded in the championship game, hitting five big triples and finishing in transition. She did a great job using her length on the defensive end and rebounding on both ends of the floor. CAMP CHAMPION!

Saniyah Hall 2026 Guard Laurel HS (OH)
Nothing I say on here will do justice to just how good Saniyah is and how good she played. Saniyah started the day off getting anywhere she wanted on the floor scoring at all three levels. She scored from deep, scored in the paint, scored in transition, and she most impressively consistently stripped the ball handler on defense for easy layups on the other end. Hall played all three games with a bullseye on her back, and in each game, she rose to the occasion and dominated.  CAMP MVP CAMP CHAMPION!!
