Emerging as a top 15 prospect in the state of Wisconsin over the spring/summer, Oshkosh West 2019 F/C Luke Haasl is still surprisingly without a scholarship offer heading into the 2018-19 campaign. A go-to post prospect who can also stretch the floor from 3-point range, Haasl is attracting numerous potential suitors as he awaits schools to finally jump all in on his recruitment.
“I’m just doing what I do best and doing it to the best of my abilities, ” Haasl told Prep Hoops Wisconsin. “I’m just going to keep playing and hopefully they’ll come.”
Haasl is receiving interest across all three divisions. UW-Green Bay, Air Force, North Dakota State, Upper Iowa University, Minnesota State-Moorehead, UW-Parkside, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Stevens Point, and Central College are in talks with Haasl prior to his senior season.
“I would think I’d be able to sign with a Division 2 or 1 program,” he said. “But if not, we’ll make it work.”
North Dakota State will meet with Haasl on Thursday. Haasl said Air Force seems the most serious among the Division 1 programs.
“I just have to get my ACT up and they’re going to come watch me play in a couple weeks,” said Haasl. “They’ve contacted me quite a bit.”
Among the Division 2 programs, Haasl listed Minnesota State-Moorehead and Upper Iowa as two coming on strong.
Moorehead: “They’ve contacted me a lot. They ask me how I’m doing. They just seem pretty interested.”
Upper Iowa: “They were asking me about a visit. I have to see if I can get down there.”
As a junior, Haasl averaged 9.6 points and 84. rebounds per game for Oshkosh West, who went 8-10 in the loaded Fox Valley Association. The No. 14 ranked player in Wisconsin’s 2019 class, Haasl is looking to make a decision after his senior season, but one school could possibly change that with an offer.
“I’ll probably just play it out, but I know Green Bay has watched me a lot, and if they offered me, I’d be super interested in going there,” he said. “We’ll just have to see.”
