No. 4 Jr Michael Porter Lighting Up Nike EYBL

No. 1 Sr Michael Porter’s 27 Lead Hale To WA State Title

ESPN No. 4 ranked high school junior Michael Porter Jr. has been lighting up the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL) this spring.

 

He’s averaging 22.8 points and 10.9 rebounds for Mokan Elite, while leading the team to a 13-3 record.

 

Porter has scored 21 points or more in 11 of his 15 games on the circuit this season.

 

He also went off for 38 points and 18 rebounds on blistering 65 percent shooting in a loss to Team Penny.

 

Porter, an explosive 6-9 forward, averaged 28 points the previous season as a sophomore at Father Tolton Catholic (Columbia, MO).

 

This season, he had a monster 31-point, 19-rebound double-double to lead Tolton to the Missouri Class 3 state championship.

 

The highly recruited Porter recently cut his college list down to five schools: Washington, Indiana, Oklahoma, Virginia, and Missouri.

 

Many believe that Washington could be a favorite since his dad accepted an assistant coaching position with the Huskies last month and head coach Lorenzo Romar is his godfather.

 

But Porter Jr. says that going to Washington is not a lock.

 

“I’m definitely happy for my dad, but when he took the job the first thing he did was sit me down and tell me that there wouldn’t be any pressure for me to come to Washington,” Porter told USA Today. “Washington was already one of the top schools on my list with my godfather being there. Now with my dad there it definitely doesn’t hurt their chances. But I’m definitely looking at other schools. I’m gonna do what’s best for me and that’s what my dad wants too.”

 

Stay tuned.
