BEVERLY HILLS, Mich. -- Detroit Country Day School was once again the site of the 17th annual Motor City Roundball Classic, one of Michigan's premier holiday basketball events. A number of terrific young players in the classes of 2013, 2014 and 2015 were on display in the tournament under the direction of Randy Williams.
Jeron Rogers (Farmington Hills, Mich./North Farmington)
2015, PF/SF, 6-foot-6, 190 pounds
The young combination forward is more of a power forward at this stage but he has the potential to extend his game on the perimeter and excel at a high level. For now, his strength is scoring on run-outs, around the rim and from midrange areas with feel and touch in the half-court set. He is also a very good rebounder in and out of his area, especially on the offensive end. He has great size for his age, feel for the game, basketball IQ and bloodlines. Rogers is the son of former NBA player Carlos Rogers. He will not hesitate to take a charge and he competes all times. He will need to be stronger with the ball and learn to face the pressure he has off-the-charts upside and could be special with continued hard work and development. If he continues to grow, watch out! It is very early in the recruiting process but I have heard that the Michigan State Spartans have already heard about Rogers.
