2024 Rankings! Tune in!
It’s that time again! Rankings are up
Prep Girls Hoops Wisconsin has listed our first round of 2024 Prospect Rankings! The list stands at 60 total prospects ranked, ranging from the top three of Allie Ziebell Allie Ziebell 6'0" | SF Neenah | 2024 State WI , Kayl Petersen Kayl Petersen 6'0" | SF Waupun | 2024 State WI and Gracie Grzesk Gracie Grzesk 5'11" | SF Green Bay Notre Dame | 2024 State WI all the way down to small college recruits!
Allie Ziebell Allie Ziebell 6'0" | SF Neenah | 2024 State WI leads the class after a terrific summer with Wisconsin Flight Elite and a standout freshman season at Neenah. She is extremely versatile with the ability to score at all three levels on the floor. She can guard multiple positions and is capable of being a secondary playmaker and ball handler in transition. The 6’0 wing averaged 20 points, 6 rebounds and nearly 3 steals per game. In a victory over Oshkosh West, Ziebell scored a season-high 35 points. She earned First Team All Conference as well as WBCA All State. Ziebell currently holds four Division 1 offers.
Kayl Petersen Kayl Petersen 6'0" | SF Waupun | 2024 State WI scored 27 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in her first varsity game at Waupun. The 6’0 small forward is mature and confident on the court. She is almost impossible to stop when she is going downhill. She has athleticism, footwork and strength. A rebounding machine, Petersen makes a huge impact on the glass on both ends of the floor. She finished an impressive season with Waupun- averaging 15 points and 8 rebounds per game. Peterson earned unanimous First Team All Conference. She currently holds an offer from Green Bay.
Gracie Grzesk Gracie Grzesk 5'11" | SF Green Bay Notre Dame | 2024 State WI helped lead her team to a WIAA State Championship during her freshman season. An athletic guard with an incredibly high motor, Grzesk is just beginning to scratch the surface of what she will provide for Notre Dame in the years to come. She averaged 12 points per game. In a win over West De Pere, Grzesk scored a season-high 23 points. She holds an offer from Green Bay.
This class is stacked with phenomenal athletes who are going to strive at the next level. It was by no means easy to rank such an incredible class- our scouts at Prep Girls Hoops have spent hours and hours of studying film to determine which player should be at which spot.
In the weeks following rankings release, it is very common that I receive multiple questions and comments regarding the ranking process. Most of the time it’s trying to figure out how a prospect is ranked “too low” in someone’s eyes, how we “missed” on someone, or why another prospect is ranked higher. All completely understandable and I’m always open to discussing players. However most of the time a simple answer to explain the very long process of ranking usually works when any concern is brought to my attention- I rank players based on their ability to be successful at the next level.
Also believe it is important to understand that I make sure that I see every player prior to ranking them whether that be a game film or in person, not highlight film. For me to rank them based on hearsay is not fair to those others who deserve it. Trust me, I am in the gym as much as I can be and am not omitting players to simply omit them because that is not fair to the player and tarnishes my integrity. If you see a player that is omitted from the list who I very obviously missed, please let me know and my contact information will be below.
Like recruiting, this isn’t a perfect science, and there is some subjectivity involved in it, but I try to do my best to remain objective and unbiased, to look at prospects as a college coach would, and I try to be thorough. This isn’t as simple as just sliding kids up or down because of how they played; research and analytics are involved, and it’s the best way for me to keep everything as fair as possible. I would never ask you to share the exact same opinions on kids that I do, but please understand and respect how we do this job before you assume what we think about different prospects.
If you think someone has been left off that is deserving, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I will NOT edit the rankings, but if that player is deserving of a spot there are still many ways to make sure her name and accolades are being showcased. The best way to reach me would be on Instagram (@pghwisconsin), Twitter (@pghwisconsin) or you can send me an email email@example.com
