Gabe Wiznitzer - 6'11" PF/C out of Salem, S.C., the Christ School (NC) and Game Elite AAU (Atlanta) - Plays for the same high school team as 5-Star current Iona recruit and former Scanlan CG Jalen LecQue. He also gets to go up against Brandon Stone, a 6'11" 3 Star C who has offers from Kansas State, South Carolina, Pitt, Houston, Penn State, and ST Joes amongst others. We are Wiznitzer's first offer. Is reported to be a skilled big who can stretch defenses with his outside shot.
"Gabe is a skilled big man with a lot potential. Just an eighth-grader, he showed the ability to contribute in gameplay versus players a year or two older than him. He has a high release on his finishes and his free throws. Adding a left-handed finish will help him score at a higher rate in the future. We have Gabe on our radar as an emerging prospect from the Palmetto State." - #EBATop40 Camp review - OTRHoopsReport - October 17, 2015
"This 6-foot-5 post has a big body with nice hands and soft touch around the rim. He rebounds well in space and finds open teammates off the double team Georgia United Stars." - OTRHoopsReport: MLK Tournament – January. 21, 2016
"We strongly feel Gabe could be the sleeper player on this absolutely talented team. We’re talking about a mobile power forward with tremendous shooting range. He has a delicate shooting touch from the perimeter and is a gifted passer as well." - Phenom’s High School Jamboree — Team Previews (Christ School) Oct 28, 2017
"It’s really hard to believe he’s only a freshman. While he will need to tone up his body moving forward, one thing is for certain; he has advanced offensive skill set. His ability to shoot the midrange and 3-pointer is high level. We were impressed with his workmanlike approach to the game. Gabe has passer friendly hands and doesn’t force shots. He has a nice understanding of the game and his basketball IQ is going to translate nicely at the next level." Phenom’s Open Gym Tour – Christ School (Arden, NC) Sep 15, 2017
Looks like the staff now has their work cut out for this kid...
"Wiznitzer is building an impressive offer sheet. Along with Clemson, he has LSU, Nebraska, Penn State, TCU, Marist, St. John’s and Iona. Clemson has a major place at the table with him right now."
even I was surprised by this ...Luke brown is the 23 most visited page on all of Max preps in ANY class from ANY sport. And...for the record ....I didn’t visit it more than 10-15 times so it’s not completely my fault
Staff is really recruiting Texas very hard. Somebody on the staff must have some solid connections. In the top 10 for KJ Adams, top 6 forvRJ Keene and the writer who posted the tweet for KJ Pruitt told me that the 6'3" PG talked the most about Iona and their zoom meeting
