A look at 10 class of 2022 players who boosted their stock the most during the grassroots season…
Joah FilardoJoahFilardo6'0" | CGMineral Point | 2022StateWI – Guard – Wisconsin Swing
A physical, athletic, and tenacious guard that can play on or off the ball, Filardo built off a strong sophomore season with an impressive summer. Filardo has a knack for getting to the rim and either picking up two points or getting to the foul line. The Mineral Point standout just has a different gear and pace about him at times. Keeping defenders on their toes, Filardo shoots it well from the outside and can facilitates to his teammates as well.
Noah FeddersenNoahFeddersen6'9" | PFMenomonie | 2022StateWI – Power Forward – Wisconsin Playmakers
Feddersen is a mobile big with athleticism and some budding skill. The 6-foot-8 junior is going to rise about 20 spots in the class of 2022 rankings. Feddersen is a polished finisher inside with either hand. He looks really good getting up and down the floor in transition and can get above the rim with ease. The Menomonie native shows some ability to space the floor and pull bigs away from the rim, adding to a very nice upside.
Marshaun HarrielMarshaunHarriel5'11" | PGJanesville Craig | 2022StateWI – Point Guard – Wisconsin Playmakers South
An electric ball handler with make-you-miss ability in the open floor, Harriel is one of the best players in the state that people aren’t talking about yet. The Janesville Craig standout can absolutely go on the ball. Now that he’s added a consistent pull-up jumper, Harriel has become even more difficult to defend. The 5-foot-11 junior knows how to finish at the rim at top end speed and can do so with either hand.
Jerome JacobsJeromeJacobs6'3" | SGMadison West | 2022StateWI – Shooting Guard – Movement Hoops Elite
Jacobs had some intriguing sophomore film and backed that up in August. The Madison West guard has very good size (6-3) and strength. Jacobs can knock down a variety of shots and excels in the mid-range. He’s even comfortable backing defenders down in the post and connecting on fade away jumpers. Look for Jacobs to be one of the bigger breakout performers in the Big Eight Conference next season.
Ben OlsonBenOlson6'3" | SFSun Prairie | 2022StateWI – Small Forward – Wisconsin Swing
Olson is a strong all-around talent that’s ready to take the next step for Sun Prairie next season. The 6-foot-3 small forward is a blue collar prospect that can generate a lot of easy points. Olson has a knack of knifing his way to the bucket, can shoot in the mid-range off the dribble, and is much more athletic than he looks. Olson gets it done defensively on and off the ball. He has lockdown DNA and is always playing the passing lanes to turn defense into offense.
Greyson PritzlGreysonPritzl6'3" | SGWest Allis Central | 2022StateWI – Shooting Guard – Wisconsin Rap
Pritzl just has that killer instinct. It doesn’t matter how many shots he’s previously made or missed, Pritzl is always in attack mode. The West Allis Central guard is an absolute sniper from 3-point range, but isn’t limited to just being a 3-point threat. A willing dribble drive threat, Pritzl is a tough, hard-nosed prospect that likes to draw contact. He plays with a chip on his shoulder defensively and is always the first on the floor to scrap for loose balls.
Owen PawlikowskiOwenPawlikowski6'3" | SFKimberly | 2022StateWI – Wing – Team 1848
Coming out of nowhere, Pawlikowski was one of the top players on the 16U Prep Hoops Circuit. A JV performer for Kimberly last season,
Pawlikowski is going to ensure the Papermakers reload instead of rebuild. A 6-foot-3 junior, Pawlikowski is an athletic slasher that can also shoot the ball from the outside. He’s got a great blend of strength and athleticism. Pawlikowski gets after it on the defensive end, creates turnovers, and just makes life difficult on the opposition in general.
Mekhi ShawMekhiShaw5'8" | PGEau Claire Memorial | 2022StateWI – Point Guard – Wisconsin Playmakers
Like Shaw’s all-around point guard play. The Eau Claire Memorial floor general has the ball on the string and can get to wherever he needs on the floor. A pass-first guard that can also take over offensively, Shaw has the ability to dictate the flow of the game, get the best out of his teammates, and put his stamp on the game, even if he’s not scoring. A very quick and elusive prospect, Shaw can be a nightmare to guard when he’s looking for his outside shot, making defenders pick their poison.
Nate StrevelerNateStreveler6'4" | SGStevens Point - SPASH | 2022StateWI – Shooting Guard – Wisconsin Blizzard
Nothing overly flashy about Streveler’s game, but he just has a knack of scoring the ball. You’re not going to see him taking bad shots or ever trying to do too much. The Stevens Point standout knows what he is and how to be successful with his skillset. Streveler moves very well without the ball and has a high-IQ. He reads defenders and how they’re playing him, free himself for jumpers or curling around the corner and getting to the bucket. The 6-foot-3 junior is a little lanky, but finishes at the rim very well, able to absorb contact and keep his balance after a bump.
Landon Van CalsterLandonVan Calster6'6" | SFFreedom | 2022StateWI – Small Forward – Team 1848
Van Calster emerged as a top 50 prospect this summer and put himself on the radar of many Division 2 programs. The Freedom standout has a chance to be a big mismatch nightmare. At 6-foot-6 with some length and versatility, Van Calster is a terrific 3-point shooter. He handles the ball well and can bring it up the floor if needed. Van Calster can attack in the halfcourt and is a very underrated passer/drive and dish threat for his size. Don’t sleep on him defensively either. Van Calster uses his length on that end to challenge shots and play the passing lanes.
