Five players who will rise in the next rankings update after their performance at Prep Hoops Hard Work Live…
Ryan Claflin – 2020 – F – Wisconsin Crusaders
Claflin picked up new interest from Division 1 UW-Green Bay after Hard Work Live. The 6-foot-6 junior is versatile enough to play and defend multiple positions. A prospect that can do a little bit of everything, Claflin scored, rebounded, defended, and made hustle plays for the Crusaders throughout the weekend.
Jacksun Hamilton – 2020 – G/F – La Crosse Elevate
We’re not sure what Hamilton is exactly. Coming up, we liked him at forward, but over the weekend Hamilton showed off a budding perimeter skillset that makes us think he’s more capable on the wing. Hamilton is very intriguing at 6-foot-6. He can create offense going to the rim and is a better mid-range shooter than we thought.
Jackson Noll – 2020 – PG – Wisconsin Academy
We have Noll at No. 52 in the class of 2020 rankings. We always loved the way he could shoot the ball, but was undersized which would hurt his college recruitment. Noll also didn’t have the junior season we expected statistically at Cuba City. However, my eyes tell me that this kid can play. Noll is very skilled with the ball and possesses the quickness to break down defenders and get into high percentage areas. He also displayed some impressive passing skills, baiting defenders at the rim and dropping it off to teammates for easy buckets. I definitely see Noll moving up when the rankings get updated in June.
Marshawn Robinson – 2022 – SG – ABC Young Lions
We saw Robinson in some fall league stuff and just needed to see him in an upper-level environment to be sure. After the weekend, Robinson did enough to be in the top 25 after showing some strong flashes at the 17U level. Robinson was a very fast and explosive guard going to the rim. If he can be more engaged defensively and consistently expand his range, Robinson can work his way to the Division 1 level.
Owen Ziegler – 2020 – SG – Wisconsin Hoops Select
Currently not ranked, Ziegler will get his name called when the new rankings appear in June. He’s undersized (6-0) for the shooting guard spot, but makes up for it with a very quick trigger. Ziegler sets his feet and lets it fly in the blink of an eye. He’s also got a very polished floater in traffic to avoid shot blockers. With Mount Horeb graduating a number of solid seniors, Ziegler might be one of the biggest breakout players in the state in 2019-20.
