While plenty of talented players across the Midwest reeled in scholarship offers over the last few months, there are still plenty out there that are still being well overlooked. Here are five players from around the Midwest that should be attracting a lot more college interest and scholarship offers than they currently are. 

Amar Augillard – 2021 – SF – Zion-Benton High School (IL)
One of the more impressive juniors around that still does not have a scholarship offer, Augillard greatly impressed this summer. Big and physical 6’6” forward with plenty of skill to contribute in many ways on the court. Nearly impossible to stop when he gets going downhill as he simply overpowers defenders but still agile for his size. Though the junior can also hit jumpers from the perimeter off the dribble and catch. Versatile forward that is a tough matchup with all of his skills and size. 

Jayden Johnson - 2020 – SF – Batavia High School (IL)
Johnson has been a skilled and productive player for quite some time now. He is a wing forward with some size at 6’6” and is one of the better three point shooters in the area. You would expect a 6’6” senior who can shoot it lights out from three to have a few offers, but the only ones he has received have been from Lewis University and the previous coaching staff at Southern Illinois. 

Dominic Martinelli – 2020 – G/F – Glenbook South High School (IL)
The high scoring wing had a monster junior season that saw him score 24.7 points per game and get named to the Illinois 4A 3rd Team All-State by the IBCA plus he was equally impressive this summer. His lone offer has come from Gannon University, a Division 2 school in Erie, Pennsylvania. Martinelli is one of the purest scorers in the area, he just has a knack for getting to the basket and finishing. He knows how to maneuver amongst defenders and uses his body well to get himself into good scoring opportunities. While he does have some Division 1 interest from Brown, Columbia, and Incarnate Word among others, the senior is well under recruited with just the lone scholarship offer. 

Brandin Podziemski – 2021 - G – St. John’s Military Academy (WI)
While he is receiving some Division 1 interest, Podziemski is one of the most skilled juniors in the state of Wisconsin and still does not have an offer to his name. The shooting guard showed the ability to take over games while playing up a level this July. He is an athletic two guard with size at 6’4” that scores the ball at a high level. Podziemski can shoot the ball at a high percentage from the perimeter, but can also beat defenders off the dribble and finish strong at the rim. Expect Podziemski to have a few Division 1 offers sooner rather than later. 

Jacques Williams – 2020 – G/F – Bowman Academy (IN)
Skilled and athletic 6’4” wing that greatly impressed this summer, especially on the defensive end. Has a nice combination of length and quickness to be able to defend both guards and forwards at a high level. Has the ability to put good pressure on the basketball while still being able to keep ball handlers in front of him. On the opposite end Williams is quick off the dribble to beat defenders and elevates to finish over the opposition. Plays with a lot of intensity on the court and does plenty to contribute. Greatly impressed at the NY2LA Next Level Invitational this summer just taking over games at times. The senior should have Division 2 and NAIA schools all over him.
