Cleveland PF Esa Ahmad includes Wisconsin in top 5

1

Cleveland (Shaker Heights) power forward Esa Ahmad joined fellow Wisconsin basketball target Diamond Stone in naming the Badgers in his top five on Thurdsay. Ahmad is a four-star prospect who's considered the class of 2015's No. 9 power forward and No. 52 player overall, according to 247 Sports' composite rankings.

As B5Q's Phil Mitten discussed on Wednesday, Ahmad could make his way to Madison on Sept. 20, along with three-star Minneapolis point guard Jarvis Johnson. Maryland gets the first crack at Ahmad, though, on a visit to College Park this weekend. According to his family, Ahmad is still likely to visit all five of his top schools at some point.

Milwaukee C Diamond Stone includes Wisconsin in top 5

Finally, some good basketball recruiting news for Wisconsin: five-star Milwaukee (Dominican) center Diamond Stone has included the Badgers in his top five. 247 Sports' composite rankings have Stone as the class of 2015's No. 1 center and No. 4 player overall. He's a versatile offensive player at 6'10, 246 pounds and he's also a quality rim protector -- earlier this month, he recorded a USA U-17 single-game record five blocks vs. China when the Americans won the gold medal at the FIBA U-17 World Championships in Dubai.

Badgers fans will also like to know that four-star Cleveland (Shaker Heights) power forward Esa Ahmad also included Wisconsin in his top five. B5Q's Phil Mitten had the latest on UW's pursuit of both players, among others, on Wednesday.

Rice Lake PF Henry Ellenson names top 3, leaves out Badgers

34

Wisconsin's momentum for five-star Rice Lake power forward Henry Ellenson cooled significantly over the last month or so, and now it appears the Badgers are out of the picture. The 6'10, 230-pounder is the No. 9 2015 prospect in the country according to 247Composite and holds offers from many of college basketball's top programs. Interestingly (perhaps not the greatest choice of words for this site's readership) enough, Marquette holds 76 percent of 247 Sports' Crystal Ball predictions for Ellenson.
