Just scratching the surface of his potential, Milwaukee (Wis.) Nicolet 2020 forward Jamari Sibley is attracting a handful of Midwest programs going into his sophomore season. Holding two mid-major offers early, Sibley is eager for more.

“Once you get the first offer, you don’t want them to stop coming in,” Sibley told NY2LA Sports. “I’m just going to keep working more and more.”

Green Bay was the first to offer Sibley in June. Milwaukee followed suit by pulling the trigger in August.  “They liked the way I played,” he said. “I play well in a fast tempo. They think I could be ‘the guy’ in their program.”

Sibley is picking up interest from Bradley, Iowa, Illinois, Purdue, Marquette, and Wisconsin.  The 6-foot-7, 200-pound forward visited the Badgers over the weekend for a home football game.  "It was amazing," Sibley said. "There were 70-plus thousand people there. I've never been around that many people at one time. It was really crazy.

Sibley plans to visit Iowa later this fall.  “I like their style of play and the coaching staff,” he said.

Marquette already had Sibley on campus in September.  “It was great going there,” said Sibley. “I got to play against their team and test myself. The coaches said I did well too.  “I liked how connected the team is. Their coaches were really nice. I liked the facilities. Its close too.”

As a freshman, Sibley posted 7.8 points and 4.6 rebounds per game, helping Nicolet to a 14-10 record and a second place finish in the competitive North Shore Conference.  In no rush to make a decision, Sibley needs time to get a feel for where his suitors are headed in the future.  By the time I'm a senior, a lot of things can change,” he said. “Players can leave, coaches can leave -- all that has a big role in where I could go.”

Sibley plays for the Wisconsin Playground Warriors during the travel season.
