The younger brother of NBA All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo, also known as the “Greek Freak,” 2020 forward Alex Antetokounmpo has plenty of pressure to live up to the high bar set by the Milwaukee Bucks superstar. 

In June, Antetokounmpo got things started in a positive manner, receiving his first scholarship offer from Linc Darner and Wisconsin-Green Bay.

“It was great,” Antetokounmpo told NY2LA Sports. “It was a little unexpected, but it was great. Coach Darner is a great guy, it’s a great program. I’ve watched some of their games this year.”

Antetokounmpo is putting up strong numbers in 2017-18. Through four games, Antetokounmpo is averaging 15 points and nine rebounds per game.

Wisconsin, Iowa, Bradley, Tulane, UC-Santa Barbara, Tulane, Montana State, and others have all expressed interest. Antetokounmpo said his next offer could come from the Missouri Valley.

“I’m going to have to wait and see, but I think Bradley is going to show a lot of interest, especially during summer ball,” he said. “They liked my game, my energy. They’ll be back to watch me.”

Wisconsin also hosted last weekend for their non-conference matchup with in-state rival Marquette.

"It was great," Antetokounmpo told said. "I went to the Kohl Center two other times for state, but it was a whole different vibe for a Wisconsin game. I really enjoyed it and learned a lot.”

A gifted 6-foot-6, 190-pound sophomore with budding versatility, Antetokounmpo is just scratching the surface of his potential. Antetokounmpo’s ability to play just about any position on the floor, will surely make him a coveted prospect across the Division 1 level.

Knowing his best days are still ahead, Antetokounmpo is looking for a program who can get the most out of his talents and display patience with his development. 

“I wouldn’t consider myself ready yet, so a team that’s going to take a journey with me,” he said. “It’s going to be a process, so a team that’s going to be willing to do that.”
