In a new offseason series, Prep Hoops Wisconsin assesses who is on the rise in specific regions across the state. In central Wisconsin, we look through a book of prospects who, despite less recruitment than other areas, have sprouted in the past season.

Preston RuedingerPrestonRuedinger6'1" | PGLourdes Academy | 2021StateWI - Oshkosh Lourdes - 2021 - G:
Domination on the stat sheet took Ruedinger from promising guard to legitimate division two prospect. He scored offers from Northern Michigan and Saint Leo, putting division two schools in the region on notice. No one expects him to improve his numbers (but serious props if he does), so his focus should be to show his heady passing and pure stroke on the summer circuit to gain more exposure.

Parker LawrenceParkerLawrence5'11" | PGHortonville | 2021StateWI - Hortonville - 2021 - G:
The FVA is going to be a skeleton of what it was in the past half-decade, but Lawrence will represent the conference well. Last year he showed he can be the leader of a unit. Now, no longer jostling with seniors for scoring rights, his window to show isolation scoring, ball-handling and leadership grew considerably.
