Late bloomers, sleepers, or just guys who have breakout years are always the fun part of evaluating and scouting and each year there’s always a number in every state.  Wisconsin has their fair share and here’s a look at five who could really take a big step forward that are expected to be impact players for their respective high school teams this winter…

Note – Listed in alphabetical order

Grant Asman – 2021 – F – Kimberly
A skilled and talented forward, Asman started to ascend this past summer with some quality efforts that fell below the radar.  Now on a team expected to compete for the state championship this season, Asman should be a key contributor.  Equipped with a solid 6-7 plus frame, Asman has a smooth stroke and range that can extend beyond the arc.  As breakout 2021 prospects go, Asman could be one who could really take some nice steps forward this upcoming season and beyond.  

Learic Davis – 2022 – SF – Milwaukee Bradley Tech
A plus length bounce wing forward with an ability to finish in transition, around the basket through traffic, etc.  Davis is still developing physically and skill wise but in the open court he’s a highlight reel and he’s expected to be a key part of the Bradley Tech attack this season.  A transfer from Milwaukee Marshall, Davis handles the ball, he can finish creatively inside 15 feet, and occasionally he will knock down a perimeter jumper.  Equipped with plus length and excellent bounce, Davis is a classic slashing wing who stands to take a big step forward this upcoming year with hard work.  

Logan Landers – 2021 – F/C – Brookfield Academy
An athletic and tough interior prospect, Landers is a two sport standout who’s grown again and looks the part of a legit Division 1 prospect big picture wise on the hardwood with hard work.  He attacks the glass, he extremely athletic, and he’s agile and competitive to say the least.  Skill wise he has good hands, finishes with either, can score around the basket, and he’s shown the ability to face up and knock down the 15 footer with range that extends beyond the arc as well this fall.  Has a chance to be one of the biggest stories in the state the next 8-12 months with continued development on the basketball side.

Brandon Leach Jr. – 2021 – PG – Milwaukee Washington
A recent transfer to Milwaukee Washington, Leach is an ultra-quick guard with handles and skill and the talented guard averaged almost 17 points a contest at Milwaukee Madison last season.  He hasn’t gotten the burn he deserved so far but make no mistake this young man can really play and he’s a solid student academically.  He’s another to watch closely over the next 8-12 months.  

Quinton Murrell – 2021 – G – Milwaukee King
A 6’3 guard who averaged closed to 15 points a contest as a sophomore, Murrell has nice quickness and athleticism and he’s a talented guard who can put the ball in the basket consistently.  Really like his overall game and potential big picture wise.  Expect him to have a big season for Milwaukee King and he’s a talented guard who should have D1 and high D2 programs watching him closely over the next 8-12 months.
