A 16/17 week high school season gives us a long time to scope out prospects that we label as stock risers. Here is another group of names that fans and college coaches should know!
of St. Paul Como Park (6’4 Wing). Clinton led his team to a 16 win season scoring 21 points a game. The body control from Clinton going to the cup is what grabs my attention, that and good size for a two guard. Shot the ball at a solid rate this winter from what we were able to gather but it’s the comfort with either hand attacking and finishing for numbers that really has caught my attention looking at his game film.
of Prior Lake (6’1 PG). For Haas it’s about being a quarterback at Winona State but this was a year that many football players had great success including guys like Kyle, , , and others. Haas might have been the best guard in the state at impacting the game without needing to score. Tough, steady, and an elite passer.
of Orono (6’3 Wing). Loder just committed to St. Olaf and I love this get for Coach Koz. Loder scored 16 a game and gave his team – a top 10 squad that played above expectations this year in large part because of him – a consistent, versatile scoring threat next to Hagen and the shooters. Even more, Loder has a confident approach that his team could lean on for big plays.
of Jordan (6’0 Guard). I would say the most unexpected monster scoring performances this year came from Ashton. He was offering 30 points a game at one point until teams started overloading him and forcing his shots. Ashton still scored 24 plus a game this year for Jordan and could be a college basketball prospect but he’s also a D2 football scholarship. One of the more pleasant surprises of the season as he shot 60 percent from the field.
of Shakopee (6’1 Guard). proved to be one of these guys that may not put up huge points, but he does produce in versatile ways in every part of the game, every game. This is the type of the guy that if you were to rank a team in 15 categories and give them a score 1-10, Snell’s total would be much higher than every player on the floor. Trusted is a word that doesn’t do what Snell does justice, he’s an impact guy in so many ways and that is why Jamestown locked him down.
of Benilde-St. Margaret’s (6’3 Guard). Warren has always been a solid player but this year he became a go-to scorer for a top ten team. Warren consistently created shots for his team which led to him being the team’s top scoring. Warren not only scored in high percentage ways, he also made shots in difficult situations.
of Rockford (6’5 Forward). One of the biggest surprises of the season was the way that Rockford went 25-4 on the year. And Zilmer had an All State level season this year averaging about 18 and 10. Zilmer plays with toughness which allowed him to board and score around the basket but he also has that face-up skill that so many schools love.
