Over the past two years, Bennett McCormick has only continued to produce on the grassroots and high school level for MTXE Premier and Catholic Memorial. As a junior last season, he led a talented Catholic Memorial team in scoring with 13.7 points a game while shooting 55% from the field and then was a key piece of the MTXE Premier 17U squad that was one of the top teams on the NY2LA Association. 

Even with his continued productive play and his abilities on both sides of the floor, his recruitment has continued to fly under the radar for a player of his level. While he does have a few schools recruiting him, McCormick is one of the top wing guards left on the board in Wisconsin’s 2023 class. 

“I had a great summer season with MTXE,” McCormick said about his recent grassroots season. “Probably my most productive ever. We had such a talented team and we played at a really high level. I drive hard, take the physical punishment and dish the passes to our sharp shooters and boy did we have sharp shooters. It’s a successful formula.”

For his upcoming high school season, it’s a different style of play for McCormick at Catholic Memorial. “I take more shots, but I also get into the paint. I am excited for our team. We are going to be really good.” Last season, McCormick shot nearly 40% from beyond the arc as a junior. 

There are aspects McCormick is looking for in his future college on and off the hardwood. “I want to go to a school that is a good fit for me academically first and foremost…After some visits this fall, I’m hoping to go to a medium to large, warm-weather school where I can get a well-rounded college experience,” he said. 

In his first game of the season, he put in a strong all-around performance with 14 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists in a victory. For colleges looking for a tough attacking guard who can also spot up for threes and is an aggressive on ball defender, McCormick is one to see.
