While the country continues to navigate through the mess that is the regional and national recruiting landscape for the 2021 class, a host of 2022 prospects continue to open eyes and take big steps forward with their performances on the hardwood.  Once talented standout that fits this mold is 2022 PG Jackson Paveletzke of Kimberly High School in Wisconsin.

Equipped with a 6-3 160 plus pound frame, Paveletzke is a gritty highly skilled combo guard that can excel as a floor general or off guard depending on the need.  He handles the ball well, his quickness off the dribble is bolstered by a quick first step, and he’s athletically continuing to take steps forward.  One of those fill the box score types that can create, scores, etc. and more importantly lead, Paveletzke is primed to open a lot of eyes over the next 8-12 months for schools in need of a 2022 guard.

Rather than speak about it take a look at his production already this season…his team is currently undefeated and has already scored over 100 points in 3 of their first 4 games.  The catalyst to that has been Paveletzke who’s shooting 59% from the field (33-56), 85% from beyond the arc (11-13), he has a 6/1 assist to turnover ratio at 24 assists to 3 turnovers, and he’s averaging 3 rebounds a contest.  The talented guard really started to hit his stride this past August and after a stellar fall he’s continued to build on that momentum with an excellent start to the season and he’s firmly established himself as a legitimate Division 1 that schools need to see in the 2022 class.

Already holding an early offer from Toledo, Paveletzke has drawn early comparisons to former in-state standout Travel Diener on multiple levels.  Boasting a near 3.9 GPA academically, Jackson checks a lot of boxes and he’s hearing from a variety of Division 1 schools at all levels and you can expect that to continue to grow as he’s one of those potential sleepers that is going to be a perfect fit for a lot of programs looking for a guard in the 2022 class both regionally and nationally.

Paveletzke plays for the Phenom University program during the grassroots travel season.
