Taking a look at some of the top power forwards/centers in Wisconsin’s 2025 class:
Kai Rogers Kai Rogers 6'10" | C Wauwatosa West | 2025 State WI — Wauwatosa West
In all my years of covering high school basketball in the state of Wisconsin, I don’t think that I have seen a prospect quite like Rogers. The Wauwatosa West center is massive. He stands at 6-foot-10 and has a very strong build. Rogers doesn’t just have size, though. He is also very skilled and nimble for his size. Around the basket, the center does an excellent job of using his rare blend of skill and size to get buckets. While I believe he still has a lot of developing to do, Rogers has already been able to complete some pretty impressive things on the basketball court.
Devin Brown Devin Brown 6'6" | PF Milwaukee Academy of Science | 2025 State WI — Milwaukee Academy Of Science
Currently ranked inside the top ten in Wisconsin’s 2025 class, Brown wasted no time making a strong impression on scouts. The Milwaukee Academy Of Science product is a super athletic player who is able to make some jaw-dropping plays. I would advise opposing defenders to not jump with Brown at the rim. Because if they do, there is a good chance that they could end up on a poster. If Brown is able to round out his skill set, the power forward could become a name to know nationally.
Andrew Rader Andrew Rader 6'9" | PF Notre Dame Academy | 2025 State WI — Notre Dame
Even though he wasn’t able to carve out much of a role last season on Notre Dame’s varsity squad, we did get a good look at Rader this AAU season on the Nike EYBL Circuit. The 6-foot-8 power forward has a lot of potential. He moves really well for his size and has some impressive athletic tools. This high school season, Rader is a prospect that I am keeping my eye on.
Will Garlock Will Garlock 6'11" | PF Middleton | 2025 State WI — Middleton
You don’t see too many prospects like Garlock. The 6-foot-8 power forward does a lot of good work around the hoop. Garlock possesses a unique ability to score through contact in the paint. It doesn’t matter how many defenders stand in his way, the PF almost always finds a way to convert on layups. He appeared in some games last year for Middleton’s varsity squad and now I expect him to make a real impact.
Maddox Cornette Maddox Cornette 6'7" | PF Bay Port | 2025 State WI — Bay Port
This past spring/summer, Cornette was able to play some really good basketball. Cornette stands at 6-foot-6. Many young players Cornette’s size just rely on their height to find success on the court. This is not the case for the Bay Port power forward. Cornette can step outside and knock down some deep shots. He played for a good squad in Team 1848 this past AAU season and was able to raise his stock.
Ayden Phillips Ayden Phillips 6'7" | PF Almond-Bancroft | 2025 State WI — Almond-Bancroft
I think that Phillips could be one of the most underrated prospects in Wisconsin’s 2025 class. The Almond-Bancroft power forward is a really good scorer around the hoop. He finishes well through contact and has some solid post moves. Phillips is also a great rebounder on both ends of the court. He is always crashing the glass attempting to snag boards.
