One of the biggest high school basketball players in the state of Michigan and all the nation is 6’11” Ryan Corner of Allendale High School. With his size, he is an absolute force on both ends of the court. Even at his size he has the ability to move well with some agility. At 6’11” with a solid frame he has the ability to score the ball very well around the hoop right over defenders. Defensively he is an imposing figure in the middle who blocks shots and grabs rebounds at a high rate.  He has developed very well over the past year and has an incredibly high ceiling. 

During his junior year Corner started to put all of his talents together on his way to all-conference honors. His hometown Grand Valley State University became the first school to offer him a scholarship back in June. Aquinas College has also since offered him. Some of the other schools he has been talking to include Citadel, Hillsdale, and VMI. 

Corner has some specific things he would like in his future college. “I’m looking for the college to have a good financial program,” he stated. When turning the attention on what he would like on the basketball side “I want to be on a team that really loves the sport and is looking to get each other better during every practice and even during games.” When talking about any timeline on a college pick Corner said, “I’m looking to commit towards the end of the regular season and possibly before if I feel it’s the right time to do so.”

Not only has Corner succeeded on the basketball court, but also in the classroom. He holds a 1240 score on the SAT to go along with a 3.14 GPA. 

Corner and Allendale High School will get their season underway shortly next week on the 13th against Covenant Christian. When talking about his season year, he told us “I just can’t wait for the season to start already.”
