One of the biggest breakout stars this spring of the entire Midwest in the entire 2024 class was Nolan Minessale. Throughout the spring playing with Chapman Basketball Academy, the 6’5” wing performed at a high level. Even after averaging a lofty 15 points per game as a sophomore at Marquette University High School (WI), he was even better this spring. 

“My spring with CBA went amazing, I improved my game a lot since the high school season and got an opportunity to play against competition from all around the country. Coach (Joe) Chapman has really helped me find my feel for the game and given me an opportunity to play in front of college coaches,” Minessale said about his spring season.

With this spot, the rising junior took full opportunity and drew the attention of several college programs. Northern Michigan, Rockhurst, Southern Mississippi, UIC, and Wisconsin-Milwaukee have all been in touch with Minessale since being allowed to contact the 2024 class last week. 

Minessale has plenty of tools for the next level with his athleticism, length, versatility, and ability to play off the dribble.  “I would want college coaches to know that I would do whatever it takes to help the college that takes a chance on me to win and that I am an extremely hard worker who has goals that I strive to achieve.”
