Ryan, Badgers offer rising in-state 2015 product

Wisconsin fans are anxiously awaiting word on commitments from two of the biggest players in the country, but until then the Badgers have quietly gone about evaluating another rising in-stater in De Pere, Wis. guard Brevin Pritzl.

On Tuesday, the Badgers offered the 6’3″, 175-pound shooting guard. He is rated as the No. 175-ranked player by the 247 composite, the No. 45-ranked shooting guard and the No. 5-ranked player in the state of Wisconsin. the 247Sports rankings have him as the No. 14 shooting guard and the No. 4 player in the state.

The Green Bay area native has blown up this AAU season, and recently went off for 37 points in a half and then went for 41 in the very next game of an AAU tournament. It was that effort in front of assistant coach Greg Gard and a growing national interest in Prtizl that led to Wisconsin pulling the trigger on an offer before the July evaluation period.

Just how important could this earlier-than-expected offer be? Well, considering programs like North Carolina, Indiana, Michigan, Texas and Marquette were beginning to inquire one gets the picture of just how big this in-state product could be.

Along with the Badgers offer, Prtizl has high-major offers from Creighton and Xavier. Both Green Bay and Milwaukee have also offered among the 11 known offers.
