East Lansing High School senior forward Brandon Johns has been named as a finalist for the Hal Schram Mr. Basketball Award, the Detroit Free Press announced on Wednesday.

The other four finalists feature fellow Michigan commit David DeJulius of Detroit East English Village. Future Michigan State Spartans Foster Loyer of Clarkston and Marcus Bingham, Jr., as well as Purdue commit Trevion Williams of Detroit Henry Ford.
