Underrated New England Prep Stars
Nik Stauskas: Class of 2012 - Committed to Michigan
|Flashy Canadian Nik Stauskas will bring his flair to Michigan next year.|
Some would argue that a Big-10 commit could not possibly be underrated. However, the fact that Stauskas is only ranked 16th in New England (NERR) and 106th in the nation (Rivals) is grossly off base and needs to change. Many people see Stauskas as a pure shooter, but although he is money from deep, this Canadian can do much more than hoist tre-balls. He has great hops and finishes above the rim in traffic routinely. Stauskas also has an uncanny ability to use crafty dribbling as a way get to the rim against players who might have a slightly quicker step. Not only does Stauskas posses great tools but he is also a gamers gamer. Playing on an absolutely stacked Saint Mark's squad (5-7 D1 players), Nik was routinely the best offensive player. Considering his success playing alongside two national top-20 players (Alex Murphy and Kaleb Tarczewski), the fact that Stauskas is outside the nations top-100 is a tragic miscarriage of justice.
Georges Niang: Class of 2012 - Undeclared
