A sophomore who has been one of the top guards in all of Wisconsin during the current high school season has been Drew Murphy. Even while only in his second year of high school, Murphy has shown he belongs as one of the most talented players in the state regardless of class. 

After a highly impressive freshman season with 14.4 points a game and second team all-conference honors, Murphy has taken his game to another level for this season. Through his team’s first six games this year, he is averaging a lofty 20.8 points per game to have Verona Area High School to a 4-2 record currently. 

At 6’5” with his skill set, there is a lot to like from the sophomore’s game. The wing guard already has a lot of projectable tools for the next level. He is a smooth shooter with good range but can also make plays off the dribble. Additionally, he uses his size effectively and can score it from all three levels. When talking about his own play, Murphy said “I would describe my game by I like to play both inside and outside and exploit mismatches. I like to shoot the three and attack the basket.” While already having a well-rounded game, he wants to improve his pull up jumper in addition to his strength to his already solid frame.  

Murphy will be one for college coaches to see during the rest of the high school season as well as in the spring when suiting up with the Wisconsin Swing program.
