COVID-19 has negatively impacted kids from coast to coast and no matter the state you’ll be able to find prospects that are either D1 caliber or D2 caliber looking for opportunities.  Add into the mix some blooming at the 11th hour and there’s bound to be talented prospects still on the board in the 2021 class.  Here’s a quick look at five bigs in the state of Wisconsin’s senior class that are worth noting…

Note – Listed in alphabetical order

Selle Dime – 2021 – 6’8’ – F/C – Golda Meir
A late blooming big who is further along defensively but developing offensively, Dime is a solid interior rebounder with nice length and an ability to alter and block shots.  Offensively he finishes around the basket with either hand and he can knock down the trey ball spotting up on the perimeter.  Raw offensively, Dime would be a quality four year contributor at a high level Division 2 school and he’s one of those sleepers inside the state to take note of.

Dawson Nordgaard – 6’9 – F – West De Pere
Equipped with a nice pedigree from both mom and dad, Nordgaard has grown late and he’s up to 6’9 with a developing skill set.  He has nice instincts, good size, and ability to score at multiple levels, and his best basketball lies ahead.  He’s already had a high level game this season and you can expect many more.  He’s one that all high caliber D2’s need to be in on and you could see a Division 1 school in the market for a four year big potentially kicking the tires on him as well.  He has a nice ceiling.

Jonah Rindfleisch – 2021 – 6’8 – F – Wisconsin Lutheran HS
We’ve been talking about him for the past couple of months after a stellar fall campaign and he looks and feels like a potential late blooming Division 1 prospect in the 2021 class.  Easily a high caliber Division 2 talent, Rindfleisch is an activity type big who can rebounds, assume his role, and deliver high caliber double double production.  He has decent athleticism, nice instincts, and he’s trending upward week after week.  Give his size and length he like Nordaard have some really nice ceilings and could be potential steals for the right Division 1 program.

Alex Singleton – 2021 – 6’7 – PF – Wauwatosa East
A max effort talent, Singleton has already started the season off with solid double double production in two quality wins.  He will finish around the basket, he can run the floor, he’s a solid athlete, his activity and energy is advanced, and he plays hard and physical around the basket.  An undersized interior forward, Singleton would be a high caliber floor impact guy for Division 2 programs at any level.

Brennan Timm – 2021 – 6’7 – F – St. Johns NWMA 
Another max effort versatile forward, Timm can play either forward position and his ability to rebound, score off the bounce, and finish at multiple levels has opened some eyes.  He’s got a solid mid-range jumper and has shown an improved ability to face up and knock down the three as well.  Effort wise he’s like Singleton in that he leaves it on the court and has the ability to fill the box score game in and game out.  Given the landscape of Division 1’s right now in the region and the country and their lack of ability to get out and see kids like they want to, Timm looks like a perfect target for Division 2 schools at all levels to really pursue and get after over the next few months.  He’s already off to a strong senior year for SJNWMA.
