T.J. Stuttley T.J. Stuttley 6'3" | SG Onalaska | 2025 MO – Guard/Wing – Onalaska
Coming off an arm injury, Stuttley is going to be hungry in 2022-23. As a freshman, he played a huge role for the Hilltoppers, leading them in scoring and rebounding at 12 points and seven rebounds per game. A versatile, all-around prospect that can play 1-through-3, Stuttley also dished out three assists per game last season. The La Crosse area continues to pump out some high-end talent. Stuttley is up next.
Zach Kinziger Zach Kinziger 6'3" | SG De Pere | 2025 State WI – Shooting Guard – De Pere
Don’t care how much De Pere is returning from last season’s squad, Kinziger is going to get his. As a freshman, Kinziger gave a 25-3 squad eight points per game, while playing alongside two other Division 1 prospects. He also hit 38 triples and shot 42 percent from downtown. Even with Johnny Kinziger and Will Hornseth Will Hornseth 6'8" | PF De Pere | 2024 State #217 Nation WI on the floor, Kinziger showed he can carry the offense if needed. A dangerous shooter that’s equally good creating off the dribble, Kinziger has a lot of his older brother’s skills with a little more size.
Devin Brown Devin Brown 6'6" | PF Milwaukee Academy of Science | 2025 State WI – Power Forward – Milwaukee Academy Science
MAS lost three Division 1 players to transfer in the off-season. That’s going to allow Brown to really take off this winter. Arguably the best athlete in this class, the 6-foot-5 forward can jump out of the gym. Brown can own the space around the rim, shooting 64 percent from the field as a freshman while also giving a loaded Novas squad seven points per game. Also an outstanding shot blocker, Brown makes those imposing, momentum-changing plays that allows MAS to get out in transition and do what they do.
Juan Guerrero Hernandez Juan Guerrero Hernandez 6'3" | CG Grafton | 2025 State WI – Combo Guard – Grafton
It’s a loaded 2025 class. Among the top 10 prospects, not sure anybody helped their cause more than Guerrero Hernandez over the summer. A very intriguing combo guard, Guerrero Hernandez is a plus-length, athletic, two-way player. The 6-foot-3 guard has that Devin Harris-type frame to him and some of that lightning-quick first step ability as well. During his freshman season, Guerrero Hernandez, an all-around player, gave Grafton 12 points, four rebounds, and four assists per game. Guerrero Hernandez is more of an attacker off the bounce, but he’ll make enough outside shots to make defenders respect him. He really uses that length defensively too to block/challenge shots and get his hands in the passing lanes.
Cooper Jesperson Cooper Jesperson 6'2" | SG Eau Claire Memorial | 2025 State WI -Shooting Guard – Eau Claire Memorial
Eau Claire Memorial is rebuilding after losing three college prospects from last season. That rebuild is going to be around Jesperson, who had a very good summer on the AAU circuit. As a freshman, Jesperson averaged six points per game while making 44 3-pointers. He shot it at a 41 percent clip from downtown as well. Type of prospect you can’t lose track of on the perimeter as Jesperson is very smart and intuitive, using little tricks to get himself free.
Jamarion Batemon Jamarion Batemon 6'3" | SG Milwaukee Academy of Science | 2025 State WI – Combo Guard – Milwaukee Academy Science
Batemon might be the best catch and shoot guard in this class, which is saying something as there are a lot of great candidates. The 6-foot-2 guard just doesn’t miss at times and had seen him rip off five, six, and even seven triples in one game like it was nothing. Batemon averaged nearly eight points per game for a loaded MAS squad as a freshman. A lengthy guard who also has some combo ability, Batemon could be in store for a 20 ppg season.
Brooks Hinson Brooks Hinson 6'1" | CG Marshfield | 2025 State WI – Point Guard – Marshfield
One of the top pure point guards in this class, Hinson is the type of player you just put the ball in his hands and let good things happen. Leading a balanced, senior-laden Marshfield squad to a 19-5 record last season, Hinson averaged 11 points and two assists per game. The 6-foot-1 guard has a very good feel from the point guard spot. The ball movement is just different when he’s on the floor. Hinson never stops moving, is going to set up his teammates for success, and make high quality, winning plays. In a lot of other classes, Hinson would be ranked substantially higher.
Elijah Griffin Elijah Griffin 6'1" | PG Westosha Central | 2025 State WI – Point Guard – Westosha Central
Another prospect that would be pushing for a top 10 spot in most classes, certainly top 15, Griffin has some of the best court vision in the state. The 6-foot-1 guard can just see things before they happen. Put talent next to him and Griffin will thrive with his playmaking ability. Love the way he can manipulate a defense with his eyes and hang onto the basketball before making an assist at the very last second. Didn’t always play a ton for a 25-3 Westosha Central squad last season, but he’s likely going to be their No. 1 guy in 2022-23.
Jaydon Awe Jaydon Awe 6'6" | SF Pacelli | 2025 State WI – Pacelli – Small Forward
Awe just has too much you can’t teach in a Division 5 program. His AAU program calls him “Baby Giannis” with his freakishly long wingspan at 6-foot-7. As a freshman, Awe averaged a double-double, posting 14 points and 11 rebounds per game. The skills need to catch up to his measurables, but let Awe get out and run in transition and he’s going to do something special. Also an impactful defender, Awe can even be a step or two late and make a big time block at the rim with his length.
Aiden Hawkinson Aiden Hawkinson 6'2" | CG Waupun | 2025 State WI – Combo Guard – Waupun
Look for Hawkinson to move into a primary role for Waupun this winter. Hawkinson got really good minutes as a freshman, averaging 12 points, five rebounds and three assists per game, while shooting 41 percent from the field. Smooth, confident outside shooter with extended range, but can also score creatively inside the arc, including while he’s off-balance. See him as more of a ‘2’ guard right now, but there’s some playmaking and court vision attributes that could carry over to the point spot if he’s needed there.
