Brevin Pritzl not only bears a striking resemblance to former Onalaska guard Matt Thomas, but as his game develops, Pritzl may represent an opportunity to make up for missing out on Thomas in 2013. Pritzl is turning into a premier shooter/scorer who could fit the Ben Brust mold with a bit more length. He can fill it up in a hurry.

Pritzl is an unabashed Badger fan and has had plenty to say about his excitement watching UW reach the Final Four this season. Creighton and Xavier offered scholarships after Pritzl most recent AAU showing, along with existing offers from in-state schools Green Bay and Milwaukee and a handful of mid-majors. Speculation on a forthcoming UW offer was a tad premature, but after announcing plans to visit Michigan and Marquette in May, Pritzl left Ann Arbor without an offer. Wisconsin seized the opportunity and offered when Pritzl visited Madison two days later. Many people still felt as though it is just a matter of time before Pritzl declares for the home squad. Though the Badgers would have had to fend off schools like North Carolina, Indiana and Texas that were inquiring about Pritzl, the De Pere gunner accelerated his timeline and became the first pledge in Bucky's 2015 class.

Pritzl was invited to June's NBAPA Top 100 Camp and had a signature, 38-point performance at a Big Foot Hoops tourney in Vegas.
