(Note – Listed in alphabetical order)
TYSON BATISTE – 2015 – PG
KICKAPOO H.S. – SPRINGFIELD, IL
A talented young floor general with nice size, Batiste showed flashes of potential on Saturday as he mixed in an ability to score the basketball at different levels with playmaking and solid rebounding ability.  With continued hard work and development both physically and skill wise, Batiste will be one to keep track of the next 8-12 months.

GERALD BLACKSHEAR JR. – 2015 – PF
MT. CLEMENS H.S. – CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI
Standing near 6-8 with a 7 foot plus wingspan makes this young forward intriguing and the long lean talent improved as the day moved along saving his best performance for the last game where he scores 16 points and collected 5 rebounds.  Will need to continue to get stronger and develop his skill package to reach his potential and if he puts in the work expect to see him collect nice trail of Division 1 suitors by next fall.

TYWON BRESSLER JR. – 2015 – PG
DOMINICAN H.S. – BROWN DEER, WI
At his best the young floor general has nice handles, can create, and has the ability to score off the bounce, in transition, and at multiple levels in half court sets.  As he continues to improve his decision making and efficiency while finding that balance between playmaking and scoring, Bressler should really start to see his game take off and additional recruiting attention come in his direction as a result. 

ARI DAVIS – 2016 – PG
MADISON WEST H.S. – MADISON, WI
A nice young floor leader with some potential, Davis showed an ability to attack the rim off the bounce and knock down the mid-range jumper as well while mixing in some solid playmaking.  Consistency, efficiency, and a more complete floor game should be his focus moving forward and if he does those things his game should flourish over the next couple years.

MASON DOMASK – 2015 – SG
WAUPUN H.S. – WAUPUN, WI
He can score the basketball at each level and showed that throughout the day with transition baskets and perimeter jumpers that he knocked down with consistency at over a 60% clip through 3 games.  Would like to see him keep that and add a more complete floor game in terms of attacking the glass and contributing without the ball, which if he does should land him some solid Division 1 consideration over the next 8-12 months.

BRADY ERNST – 2015 – PF
CLINTON H.S. – CLINTON, IA
Standing near 6’8” with a long frame there’s a lot of clay to mold here as he’s shown an ability to score around the basket, at the mid range level, and by stretching defenses with range beyond the arc.  Activity and aggressiveness will be the key to how high he goes as he’s a solid Division 1 prospect who could really see his stock elevate substantially with added explosion and strength while elevating his activity and aggressiveness on both ends in the coming months.  Really nice potential with hard work and continued development.

DREW FREDRICKSON – 2015 – G
MT. HOREB H.S. – MOUNT HOREB, WI
Found his groove in the final game as he blistered the nets to the tune of 26 points while collecting 7 rebounds and 3 steals after a slow afternoon.  The key to his final effort was a 5-7 performance from long range and a 10-14 performance from the field while mixing in rebounds and solid defense.  Right there is a perfect example of what he has the potential to bring to the table as he has a nice stroke with range beyond the arc so if he can bring that type of effort and aggressiveness to the court on both ends with consistency over the next 8-12 months his game will soar and attention will come in his direction as a result.

DEVIN GAGE – 2016 – G
CURIE H.S. – CHICAGO, IL
A tough athletic guard with potential, Gage is a scoring first type guard who handles the ball and can score at each level with some dominance and consistency.  Look for his game to continue to elevate as he finds the balance between creating and scoring while elevating his efficiency and defensive activity in the coming months.  Already garnering Division 1 interest, look for that to continue to grow as he continues to improve in the coming years.

DEVIN GREEN – 2016 – PF
CASCADE H.S. – CASCADE, IA
A solid double double potential type talent who can score around the basket and control the glass at his best.  He’s equipped with some decent size and power and if he can bring that max effort on both ends he should round into a solid prospect to keep track of over the next couple years.

RAPOLAS IVANAUSKAS – 2016 – F
BARRINGTON H.S. – BARRINGTON, IL

Long, raw, and skilled, Ivanauskas was impressive with his versatility during game play and with a 6’8” frame and a near 7 foot wingspan this young talent is really just scratching the surface of his potential.  He can grab rebounds, hit the mid range jumper, stretch defenses beyond the arc, and can score in transition occasionally.  Still developing as a prospect, look for Ivanauskas to grab mid and high major attention as he develops both physically and skill wise over the next 18-24 months. 

JAKE JURSS – 2015 – SG
SHEBOYGAN LUTHERAN H.S. – SHEBOYGAN, WI
Certain guys play to their strengths and that’s what Jurss did this past weekend as he ripped the nets from long range with consistency game after game knocking down 10-19 jumpers from beyond the arc over the course of 3 games.  An instinctive smart talent with a lethal perimeter stroke, Jurss should really see his game elevate in the coming months if he can continue to develop his ball handling and play making ability allowing him to slide between both guard spots with effectiveness. 

ISIAH KNIGHT – 2016 – PG
TRINITY H.S. – LOUISVILLE, KY
The young lead guard opened some eyes at times on Saturday as he played hard and knocked down shots at the mid-range level and beyond the arc with consistency.  Mix in solid activity on the glass, nice playmaking decisions at times, and you have a solid young guard to keep track of over the next 16-24 months as he continues to develop physically and skill wise.

RYAN KRIENER – 2016 – F
NEW HAMPTON H.S. – NEW HAMPTON, IA
Standing near 6’6” with a 7 foot wingspan, this young sophomore passes the look test and while still developing both physically and skill wise he opened some eyes with an efficient performance on Saturday.  He shot the ball at 80 percent from the field (i.e. 12-15 FG’s in 3 games) while showing an ability to finish around the basket and also stretch defenses with a jumper that extends beyond the arc.  Mix in solid rebounding activity and effort and the fact that he is young and equipped with plus length and solid instincts and you have a very intriguing young prospect whose stock could soar significantly over the next 18-24 months with hard work.

NICK LOKE – 2016 – G
ARROWHEAD – HARTLAND, WI
Reminds me a bit of former Germantown High School standout Josh Mongan at times and while Mongan was more advance at this stage as a playmaker and with his floor leadership, Loke is a better pure shooter from beyond the arc at this stage.  Regardless, the point is made that this young sophomore has some ability and upside and this past weekend he gave more evidence of that as he ripped the nets from long range with consistency (i.e. 8-14 from 3pt line) through 3 games.  With continued advancement of his ball handling, playmaking, and on the ball perimeter defense look for this young talent to continue to elevate and attention come his way in the process. 

CASEY MCCLURE – 2015 – G
VERONA AREA H.S. – VERONA, WI
Quietly delivered a solid effort this past weekend and if that’s any indication of what lies ahead then McClure looks primed for a strong junior campaign.  He has range beyond the arc, can finish in transition, hits the mid-range jumper, etc. and the young junior also found ways to contribute without the ball by attacking the glass and being disruptive at times defensively.  One to keep track of in the coming months.

NICK MCGLYNN – 2015 – PF
STOUGHTON H.S. – STOUGHTON, WI
Standing at a true 6’8” with a near 7 foot wingspan, McGlynn opens eyes when he walks in the gym and this past weekend the talented forward was able to show his potential in flashes throughout the day.  He can finish around the basket, can knock down the 15 footer, and has the ability to stretch the floor and drill the trey ball as well.  Look for his recruiting stock to continue to elevate as he becomes more active on both ends and more assertive on the glass and attacking the rim over the next 8-12 months. 

CORNELIUS MCINTOSH – 2015 – G/F
ST. FRANCIS DE SALES H.S. – DOLTON, IL
The talented wing showed flashes during the afternoon session and then delivered his best performance at the end as he attacked in transition and off the bounce and found ways to score the basketball at the mid-range level.  Look for him to elevate his play with improved activity and aggressiveness moving forward. 

ALEX OLESINSKI – 2015 – PF
LA LUMIERE SCHOOL – LAPORTE, IN
A long lean skilled forward who stands near 6-9, Olesinski has some nice size that he pairs with length and instincts to make up an intriguing young talent.  He sees the floor well for a big man, has some nice instincts on the glass, can finish, and has the ability to knock down the trey ball.  As he adds strength, elevates his activity, and becomes more aggressive and assertive on both ends he will continue to add Division 1 interest to his recruiting trail over the next 8-12 months.

DALLAS POLK-HILLIARD – 2015 – SF
MESSMER H.S. – MILWAUKEE, WI

Part of a handful of late bloomers in the state of Wisconsin for this class, Polk-Hilliard has a near 7 foot wingspan which allows him to play bigger than his 6’5” frame.  He has range beyond the arc, he can finish around the basket, and he has some solid instincts and potential.  With elevated activity and aggressiveness, development physically, and continued improvement skill wise he could really have a big high school year and open Division 1 eyes next spring and summer.  One to pay attention to in the coming months.

ISAIAH ROBY – 2016 – SF
DIXON H.S. – DIXON, IL
He stands near 6’6” with close to a 7 foot wingspan and despite a raw skill package and a long wiry frame this young sophomore has a significant amount of upside and potential that he’s not close to reaching right now.  He has solid instincts on the glass, can contribute without the basketball across the board, and has a smooth mid-range jumper with range that extends beyond the arc.  With him it’s a lot of upside and potential and there is plenty of it.  As he continues to mature physically and develop skill wise, Roby should see his recruiting stock elevate substantially if he can also elevate his activity and aggressiveness on both ends over the next 18-24 months.

DAVID SACHS – 2015 – PG
HIGHLAND PARK H.S. – NORTHBROOK, IL
Like what this young floor general brings to the table as you really pick your poison with him because he can light it up from beyond the arc but also has the ability to control the game with his playmaking and leadership.  At his best Sachs helps teams win games in a variety of ways and the young floor general has excellent leadership qualities that he pairs with solid decision making to make for a nice prospect.  Look for low and mid Division 1 schools to take a solid look at him in the coming months if he can continue to refine his skill package and elevate his on the ball perimeter defense in the coming months.

JEVON SMITH – 2015 – SG
MILWAUKEE LUTHERAN H.S. – MILWAUKEE, WI
A slashing open court wing that can finish in transition with consistency, Smith was stellar at times in the open court as he slashed his way past opposing teams for basket after basket.  The emerging junior also was active on the glass at times as well with effectiveness.  With improved perimeter shooting and increased activity and aggressiveness on both ends, Smith should really see his game elevate in the coming months. He was impressive at times on Saturday. 

JAYLAN WHITE – 2016 – PG
INTERSTATE 35 – ST. CHARLES, IA
A solid young floor leader with quickness and instincts, White can fill it up off the bounce and at the mid-range level.  Showed flashes of that throughout the day.  Look for his game to elevate with continued focus on finding that balance between playmaking and scoring while also improving his perimeter stroke from beyond the arc.  A solid young floor general to keep track of. 

NIBRA WHITE JR. – 2016 – G
EVANSTON TOWNSHIP H.S. – SKOKIE, IL
A nice young guard with range, White drilled the long range jumper with consistency throughout the day to the tune of 8-9 shooting from beyond the arc and he found success at the mid range level as well.  Mix in some solid defensive efforts throughout the day and White was impressive and opened some eyes in the process with a solid day’s work of contribution on both ends of the court. 

JEREMIAH WORDS – 2016 – SF
MILWAUKEE RIVERSIDE H.S. – MILWAUKEE, WI
Have always liked this young man’s ability to contribute without the basketball as he can play a variety of positions.  At his best Words is a slashing forward with instincts, toughness, and an ability to score around the basket, finish in transition, and attack the glass.  His calling card is effort and activity as he can fill the box score when he brings both to the table with consistency and he showed flashes of that again this past weekend.
