With the high school season approaching, I’ll be taking a look at some of the top college prospects to keep an eye on in the Southeast Conference!
(6’8 2022 F, Racine Case)- Arguably the top prospect in the conference in terms of long-term potential, Amari saw his stats take a nice jump forward as a junior. Now as a senior he’ll look to consistently produce at a high level on both ends of the floor. His length and athleticism go unmatched throughout the conference, making him a threat to finish around the rim while also a shot blocking presence defensively. Because of his mobility he can switch off and defend on the perimeter, and he’s dangerous running the floor in transition. Showed a bit of outside shooting ability and a solid handle for his size last year as he averaged 14.8 ppg.
(6’ 2022 PG, Kenosha Bradford)- Jalen enters the year as one of the frontrunners for Conference POTY, after averaging 16.9 points and a conference leading 4.5 apg last season. The 6’ guard has a great feel for the game and is a smooth operator with the ball in his hands. He makes great reads in the pick & roll and has range that extends to well beyond the arc (45% as a junior). With Bradford graduating a few key players, expect him to take on an even bigger role.
(6’4 2022 F, Racine Horlick)- Darrien only played in 7 games last year, but when active he showed flashes of dominance inside. The 6’4 forward may be the most explosive player in the state, capable of throwing down powerful dunks or sending shots flying into the second row of bleachers. So dangerous when he’s cutting off the ball but also showed some flashes this summer of creating his own shot and knocking down open threes. Averaged 16.9 ppg last season as a junior.
(6’ 2023 PG, Kenosha Bradford)- After a promising sophomore season, Jamisen will look to step into a key role as a junior. He’s lightning quick with the ball in his hands and has an endless bag of tricks to blow by defenders on his way to the rim. Jamisen has a crafty layup package to go up and finish against size, and has the talent to play on or off the ball this year.
(6’ 2022 G, Racine Case)- Terryon is likely to eclipse the 1,000 career point mark this season, as he’s been a double figure scorer in all three years on varsity. He’s a quick and strong guard who can get to the rim with ease and shield off defenders to finish against size. Last season he showed some improvements in his three point shot as well, making him a bit more multi-dimensional as a scorer. Should help Case rebound from a losing record last season.
(6’1 2024 CG, Racine Case)- After a strong summer, the sophomore looks ready to make the leap to varsity. Even at his age he’s a physical presence who can get to the rim and finish through contact. Defensively he has the quickness to make plays on the perimeter but his strength also allows him to defend a bit bigger than his size.
Bryce Wallace (6’5 2022 SF, Kenosha Indian Trail)- Though still a bit of a project as a prospect, Bryce possesses plenty of physical tools that make him an intriguing player moving forward. He’s a long and athletic forward who’s a threat to finish above the rim every time he gets out in transition. Had a bit of a breakout year as a junior and will look to produce at an ever higher level this winter.
Isaac Verges (5’11 2022 G, Franklin)- Franklin graduated a lot from last season’s team, but Isaac Verges is a key piece coming back. The 5’11 guard is a sharpshooter from deep, and his off-ball movement keeps defenders chasing him all over the floor. Averaged just under 9 points a contest last year and should see that number improve as a senior.
(6’4 2023 SF, Kenosha Tremper)- One of the juniors in the conference, Will is coming off a 13.3 ppg sophomore season for Tremper. He’s a high percentage finisher around the rim who almost never seems to miss from within 3 feet. His motor never stops and that shows with his rebounding ability on both ends of the floor. Also brings some defensive versatility to the floor for his team.
Jr. (6’ 2024 G, Racine Park)- Willie is one of the flashier players in the 2024 class, as he’s a gifted finisher around the rim who can make tough lay-ups look routine. Defensively he excels at forcing turnovers, and then creating instant offense with his speed in the open floor. Saw time on varsity towards the end of his freshman year, and could play a key role as Park looks to rebuild.
MJ Stackhouse (6’6 2024 PF, Kenosha Indian Trail)- There’s a lot to like about MJ’s potential moving forward, and we’ll see how he competes at the varsity level after a dominant summer. He’s a strong 6’6 forward who’s strength will be unmatched even by a lot of upperclassmen in the conference. He can back players down and score with either hand, while also having the athleticism to run the floor hard and finish above the rim with ease.
Keviyon Price (6’4 2022 F, Kenosha Bradford)- Keviyon plays a lot bigger than his size, and provides a paint presence on both ends of the floor for Bradford. He’s a strong rebounder who attacks the ball out of the air, and finishes well through contact. He’ll be tasked with guarding opposing size but he’s also mobile enough to switch out and guard on the wing when needed.
(6’ 2022 G, Racine Case)- Adrian transferred into Case and was an instant impact player for them last season. He’s a tough finisher around the basket and this summer showed he’s a threat from beyond the arc as well. Dangerous creating his own shot off the dribble.
