With 16U and 15U teams getting into the mix today, PHW assembled a long list of standouts for Saturday’s games.
Darrien LongDarrienLong6'5" | PFRacine Horlick | 2022StateWI – Gallo Sports Center – 2022:
Long shocks you physically. He’s got natural strength and bounce, and although he’s not the tallest, he controls the paint on both ends. He was at his best as a rebounder today. He has the intuition and timing to grab rebounds right off the rim, and he puts in the effort to lunge after 50/50 balls.
Andrew AliaAndrewAlia6'2" | SGKenosha St. Joseph | 2022StateWI – Wisconsin Playground Club – 2022:
Alia was a stud today, and it didn’t take a lot of minutes to prove it. The guard is a pure scorer with the physical traits to hold his own at a division one school. He also made some contested shots, doing things that just can’t be taught.
Jayquan Hicks – Wisconsin Playground Club – 2022: Hicks boosted his stock big time today. The 6’6” center was notably more productive than last summer, adding a shimmy move in the lane and more of a scorers mentality on offense. He also fought harder for rebounds and had multiple plays where he’d grab one or two offensive boards to keep the possession alive.
Micah CauseyMicahCausey5'9" | PGSt. Thomas More | 2022StateWI – Wisconsin RAP – 2022:
Causey was electrifying today and the catalyst for RAP’s fast-paced offense. His speed is always a notch higher than his opponent, and he uses that to pierce the lane on drives or get the offense into a quicker flow. He also baited the defense on the perimeter. Several times today he waited for the defense to close out on him allowing a teammate to cut into the lane and get an open layup.
Greyson PritzlGreysonPritzl6'3" | SGWest Allis Central | 2022StateWI – Wisconsin RAP – 2022:
I caught the tail end of Pritzl’s 29 point outing against the Iowa Mavs, and it’s clear that he’s a talented prospect. His dimensions are great for a wing or guard. Right now he has a broad arsenal, as he can shoot threes at high volume but he can also be a size mismatch down low. There’s a lot to like with his numbers and production although there’s still plenty of room to refine and develop. Scouts should start to watch this kid closely.
Robert Peters – Wisconsin Playground Club – 2023:
Peters was an exciting player to watch with his size. At 6’7” he had a solid post skillset of touch shots and dunks. He is a natural rebounder with his length, and he also is relatively mobile in the open floor.
Colin Hardrick – Wisconsin Playground Club – 2023:
Hardrick is lethal in transition. The high-flying lefty threw down two dunks today, flashing exceptional athleticism and explosion. He also made a three from the wing, which could be his go-to move when he’s in the halfcourt.
Nate ForystekNateForystek6'7" | PFBay Port | 2022StateWI – Wisconsin Crusaders – 2022:
Forystek may not have put up the biggest numbers, but he popped back onto our radar with some good plays. He ran the floor well a few times, getting an open dunk attempt in the second half. He also showed touch around the rim, proving that he can get shots up in creative ways.
Josh TerrianJoshTerrian6'3" | SFPewaukee | 2022StateWI – JH1 Elite – 2022:
Terrian always catches my eye as a hard-nosed, versatile guard. Although typically a shooter, he was in the trenches today grabbing boards and 50/50 balls. He also showed his vision for shooters, as he was always on the lookout for a player in the corner, ready to zip a pass before the defense could rotate.
Ray Zuleger – Xavier – 2021:
The bulky guard is a tough player to match up with. He plays with a high motor on both ends, can shoot and drive well, and showed smooth dribble moves in transition. Definitely a valuable guard to a varsity roster.
Adam Koellermeier – Neenah – 2021:
Here’s a sleeper prospect out of Neenah that didn’t play significant minutes last year. He’s a tough attacker that welcomes contact. He had a nice wide crossover and a perimeter game that can heat up quickly. He finished the first half with nearly all his team’s points.
