One junior in Wisconsin continuing to gain more and more interest from college coaches nationwide is Brandin Podziemski. Podziemski is a 6’5” shooting guard who attends St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy. 

Some of the colleges that have been recruiting him recently include Buffalo, Eastern Michigan, Iowa, Loyola-Chicago, Marquette, Michigan, Texas A&M, UC-Santa Barbara, Valparaiso, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, in addition to many others. The one school to extend an offer to Podziemski currently is DePaul, which happened back in October. 

“There are many things I like about DePaul, they are in a great city one of the best in the world. They have that great downtown and big city feel and their school programs academically are great. And basketball they are getting better and better each year so that is really good,” Podziemski commented on the lone school that has offered him. When talking about what he is looking for in a college, Podziemski said “I’m looking for a place that fits me and my family. A place that treats my family just like me. I also want somewhere where I can go to and get a great education, but at the same time win a national championship, that’s the main thing I want.”

To date Podziemski has taken visits to Loyola-Chicago, Marquette, Michigan, and Valparaiso. When talking about the visits he stated, “all four of them were great experiences and all of them remain in my though process when it comes to colleges.”

Podziemski has been having one of the more impressive seasons across Wisconsin with a stat line of 25.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.3 steals, and 2.6 assists per game to help St. John’s Military Academy to a 7-3 record this year. For the year, the junior has some lofty team and personal goals.
