Another Detroit-Oakland standoff

The cold war between Oakland and the University of Detroit could get uglier pending the outcome of a recruiting battle for Flint Powers standout Patrick Lucas-Perry, the younger brother of redshirt guard Laval Lucas-Perry.
The younger Lucas-Perry is rumored to have Oakland as one of his finalists and a source close to the family has said the Titans are another potential suitor. An article from MLive last week mentioned Pennsylvania in the mix.
Patrick Lucas-Perry's allegiance could be tested in the coming months. His brother will play for Oakland next season and his father played at Detroit. Does he play for the present or cling to his father's legacy?
Oakland has already lost out on one prized sibling recruit this year. Denzel Valentine, younger brother of Oakland sophomore Drew Valentine, already made his declaration for Tom Izzo's MSU Spartans.
If Oakland doesn't land Patrick Lucas-Perry, it will make for an interesting footnote. Perhaps the Titans would make that trip to Rochester for the game?
