While the recruiting landscape for 2021 prospects is far from finished regionally and nationally, a host of talented 2022 prospects are emerging from the shadows and starting to generate buzz of their own in different parts of the country.  The Midwest is no exception to this as talented late blooming prospects like PG Antonio Bluiett of Buffalo (MN) is opening eyes and collecting a lot of attention with each passing month.

Equipped with a strong 6-1 160 pound frame, Bluiett is a talented lead guard that can do a little bit of everything on the hardwood.  He has excellent feel and instincts that he pairs with vision and quality decision making to make for an excellent developing playmaking floor general.  He has solid dribble penetration skills in half court sets and he can push the tempo in transition to create easy opportunities for his teammates.  Scoring wise he can finish at all levels and has shown an ability to finish through contact, off the mid-range pull up, and from beyond the arc be it off the dribble or in a catch and shoot capacity.  Add to the mix intangibles and leadership and it’s easy to see why he’s already collecting some nice Division 1 interest.

North Dakota, North Dakota State, U-Mass Lowell, and Lafayette are already expressing interest in the talented guard who’s primed to take a huge leap forward when things get back to normal.  He’s already firmly established himself as one to watch closely in a developing 2022 class in the Midwest.  

Bluiett plays with the Minnesota Comets Elite program during the grassroots travel season.
