Warren De La Salle point guard Justin Fischer is known as one of the best pure passers in the state of Michigan.
Prep Hoops’ number forty-seven player for 2018 had a big Summer on the AAU circuit running with TEAM basketball.
“I thought I had a break-out Summer and it helped having a good team around me,” Justin told Prep Hoops.
Having viewed Fischer live at the Level Up Elite 80 Showcase in August, he’s a jumbo point guard that possesses elite vision and consistently makes the game easy for teammates. While his passing ability is well-known, his scoring prowess has made tremendous strides during the past year. Justin consistently got in the paint with a nice handle and finished with regularity using great body control and an array of floaters.
“The biggest improvement to my game over the last year would be scoring. I can drive very good now as well as I can shoot it better than last year.”
On the recruiting front, Fischer currently holds a pair of NAIA offers from Aquinas and UofM Dearborn, but has plenty of interest at the Division II level.
“Grand Valley, Davenport, Lewis, Michigan Tech, Hillsdale, Lake Superior State and Cornerstone are all showing interest.”
Justin is starting to focus on his recruitment and has a visit planned in the near future.
“I have an official visit to Lake Superior State on September 22 and 23. I would like to go see as many schools as possible to find the best fit.”
While a decision is not planned in the near future, Fischer has the relationship with the prospective coaching staff high on his list.
“The factors that are important to me is just trying to find that fit where I feel comfortable at the college. I want to be around good people and good coaches.”
With the High School season beginning in just a few months, Justin is looking for a big year from both a team and individual standpoint.
“My goals for the upcoming High School season are to win Macomb player of the year, win the Catholic League, average 15 or more points and be first team All Catholic..”
