Taking a look at some of the top point guards in Wisconsin’s 2024 class…
— Pius XI
He isn’t the biggest or most athletic prospect in Wisconsin’s 2024 class, but Johnson is a player that I have grown to love. The point guard is tough as shoe leather and won’t ever go away. This past AAU season, Johnson displayed just how relentless he is. In a game that his squad was losing, Johnson refused to quit. He slashed to the rim over and over again and converted on difficult layups. Any college programs looking for a point guard should take a good look at Johnson.
Dupree Fletcher Jr. — Milwaukee Carmen
Fletcher is a very good overall floor general. The Milwaukee Carmen point guard is extremely dynamic with the ball in his hands. He is the type of prospect who can give opposing defenders real problems. He is super shifty and speedy in the open court. Fletcher is capable of leaving defenders in his dust. Fletcher is also a skilled passer who does a really great job of locating open teammates and threading the needle.
— Kettle Moraine
Playing for one of the most talented teams in the state of Wisconsin, Wagner is a prospect who college programs need to keep a close eye on. The Kettle Moraine standout put up some really impressive numbers last season. Wagner stands at about 5-foot-9 and is very difficult for opposing defenders to stay in front of. I love watching Wagner play and I am very excited to watch him this upcoming season.
— Appleton East
Appleton East — long recognized as one of the better programs in the state — has another future star in LaChapell. The point guard is an elite floor general who possesses an extremely high basketball IQ. I just love how the Appleton East PG plays the game. He never tries to do too much on the court. Whatever the defense is giving him, LaChapell is more than happy to take it. Look for LaChapell to have a big season in the Fox Valley Association.
Playing for Wisconsin Blizzard 16U this past AAU season (one of the better squads in the state), Arenz was really impressive. Around the rim, the Kiel point guard is super good at contorting his body and finishing layups at difficult angles. He is also a very good defender who uses his speed to fly around like a free safety and pick off passes. Arenz was one of my favorite prospects to watch this past AAU season. I love his overall game.
I think that Kelley could be a prospect who surprises a lot of people this upcoming season. I saw the McFarland product play with Wisconsin Academy a couple of summers ago and I was super impressed. He is a lethal scorer at all three levels. Kelley has a really quick release on his pull-up jump shot and is very slippery when getting downhill.
