Milwaukee lands twin tower commitments
As per Mark Miller of WisHoops.net and Swing AAU coach Dana MacKenzie, the Milwaukee Panthers picked up commitments from Brett and Alex Prahl of East Troy for the class of 2013.
The Prahls are the third and fourth players in the 2013 recruiting class, joining transfer Steve McWhorter (mandatory redshirt in 2012-13) and forward Cody Wichmann.
Brett Prahl will be on full scholarship, while his twin Alex will be playing as a preferred walk-on (four of five years on scholarship).
Both players are big, strong forwards. Alex is a decent shooter out to 15 feet and he has pretty good jumping ability for a player of his size, and he also runs the floor very well so he can keep up with the Jordan Aaron style run-and-gun.
Brett Prahl, on the other hand, shoots well all the way out to the three-point arc. He has quite a good bounce for a player of his height and he also fits the run-and-gun offense. Brett also separates himself from the pack in that he can finish around the hoop with either his left or right hand, something the Panthers will need down low.
The Prahls are a legitimate 6'9'' and each made astounding progress this summer under Dana MacKenzie's tutelage in Wisconsin Swing AAU. They also benefit from coming out of a great high school program at East Troy coached by Darryl Rayfield.
Milwaukee turns its attention to filling out the remainder of its 2013 class. Mo Evans and Garrett Hall of Cathedral, Indiana are visiting this weekend and the Soukup brothers out of Danville, Iowa now move to a top priority in recruiting. Milwaukee native Trinson White has been on campus multiple times and the Panthers are pursuing him hard.
