Cleveland PF Esa Ahmad includes Wisconsin in top 5


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.
