Taking a look at some of the top combo guards in Wisconsin’s 2023 class:
Kinziger has had an outstanding high school career. The DePere standout is a tremendous overall prospect who I have really enjoyed watching over the past couple of years. Kinziger — who recently committed to Illinois State — is set to have a massive senior season. I really love the versatility that the guard brings to the table. He can play either guard position really well and is able to score in many different ways.
Coming off a serious knee injury, I have been very impressed with how Klesmit has returned to his previous form. The UW-Green Bay commit is a very talented scorer who can get buckets at all three levels. He has a deadly three-point stroke and is very crafty when slashing to the rim. Klesmit is also a tremendous passer. On the offensive end of the court, Klesmit is an elite player.

I really like watching Cook play. Currently ranked just outside of the top ten, I wouldn’t be surprised if the combo guard is turning heads by the end of the winter. Cook has a game that could translate perfectly to the college level. He is a very talented slasher who is able to use his rare blend of pure athleticism and skill to score. Look for college programs to jump on Cook if he has a big senior season.
Playing for a really good Wisconsin Swing squad this past AAU season, Hurley was a standout player. Hurley is a guard with tremendous positional size who plays with a lot of skill on both ends of the court. The combo guard has a pretty three-point stroke and is very good around the rim. On the defensive end of the court, Hurley is a gritty, hard worker.

Because he plays for a top AAU program in the state, I have had plenty of opportunities to watch Shakur play over the years. And each time I watch the combo guard play, the more impressed with him I am. While he may not be the flashiest prospect on this list, Shakur just flat out gets the job done. He is a talented passer and very underrated as a scorer. If I was a college coach, I would certainly consider offering Shakur.
Even though he has been dealing with injuries, Herro returned this AAU season and turned some heads. The Whitnall standout is a very good passer; if a teammate is open, chances are Herro will find them. The combo guard plays with a very high IQ on the offensive side of the court. He rarely makes mistakes and always seems to make the right basketball play.
