Verbal Commuts reports “2018 Meadowcreek (GA)/Detroit commit F Cory Hightower is reopening his recruitment.” Yet another casualty of the extraordinarily long process to fill the head coaching position.

Steve Bell: “Coach-less Detroit loses a recruit.”

(At least we’re finally starting to see more consistency in branding.)

Maybe Cory wanted to see who the new coach might be as he really liked the school, but got tired of waiting. There are only a handful of days left before the signing period is over, very understandable that he would want to lock into a program that already has a staff in place.

Nero fiddles while Rome burns.

If the Bronkema rumor is true. Look for these two, per a source as heading to Detroit. Juco All-American and nephew of Greg Kelser, Walt Kelser. Also Carl Bow if Hazel Park High.

Bow averaged 20 points and six rebounds per contest this past season. He earned consensus all-state accolades from the Detroit News, Detroit Free Press and Bank Hoops. A first-team All-Oakland Activities Association pick, he was also named to both the Detroit Free Press and Detroit News All-Metro North squads and was a 1,000 point scorer on the prep level. He posted a career-high 40 points in a single game, led his squad to an 18-3 overall record and has been tabbed as the state's #3 combo player and #22 overall standout by Inside Prep Sports. He was also ranked among the state's top 40 players by Prep Hoops.

The 6-0 Kelser tallied 21 points, 3.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.7 steals this past year for Schoolcraft Community College. He earned National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) First Team All-America accolades and was an All-Region XII First Team pick. This season, he was chosen as the Michigan Community College Athletic Association (MCCAA) Eastern Conference Player of the Year and also earned first-team All-MCCAA kudos in addition to being named to the District 10 All-Tournament Team. As a sophomore this year at Schoolcraft CC, Kelser ranked 18th in the country in scoring average and totaled 39 points in a single game. He led his squad to a 23-8 overall mark. Kelser is the nephew of Greg Kelser, a former Michigan State All-American and NBA veteran.

Knowing nothing about either of these players, seems like solid add ons. At least we'll have a full roster next season.

I agree but they seem like the kind of players that would dribble into Calihan and drop 25pts on us, and I'd be asking why didn't we recruit that guy? While we'd have a guy like Solanke or Jesse Barnes sitting on the bench averaging 1.2 splinters in their rear end.

We definitely need warm bodies so... okay. If I were a current walk-on, I'd be asking for a scholarship for next season. After all, they are roughly as accomplished as these two.

The one really good player that Bronk might have had a shot at with West michigan connections was the Norman kid out of Godwin Heights. He is a player but we messed around to long finding a coach and Norman is off to Duquesne. He was also a good student and could have actually made his way past admissions.

Presbyterian and UT-Martin have offered Cory Hightower. I assume he will likely sign an LOI with one of those or another school by tomorrow. Sad to watch the wheels come completely off the bus.
