Valentine's little brother picks MSU
Denzel Valentine is just a junior at Lansing Sexton, the same school as his older brother and Oakland assistant Saddi Washington. Sexton coach Carlton Valentine, the boys' father, was an MSU basketball standout in the mid-1980s and later played professionally in Sweden.
Denzel Valentine was an all-state honorable mention, leading the Big Reds to the Class B state finals last season. He is expected to make his intentions formal during the fall signing period, according to the Lansing State Journal.
