Emoni Bates, the No. 1 player in the 2022 class and a Michigan State pledge, has been teaming up with future Spartan Jaden Akins on his AAU team. At least that was for the past while with the two playing together. Akins was rumored to have been forced off the team after an altercation with Bates with Ypsi Prep. Bates’ dad is the head coach for the team.
It sounds like Jaden Akins and Emoni Bates got into it over who gets the ball more on their AAU team and Emoni kicked Akins off the team 😂 trouble in paradise for the future Spartans??
