Cohen breaks out

Sandy Cohen, a 2014 guard out of Wisconsin, raised his profile in the spring playing with Playground Elite on the EYBL circuit.

Seymour (Wisc.) High standout Sandy Cohen has had a breakout spring.

A skilled guard that stands 6-foot-5, Cohen can play on or off the ball. He sees the floor well, has a solid jump shot and is able to slice his way into the paint when he needs to.

"I'm pretty versatile," Cohen said. "I can play the one or the two. It doesn't really matter to me."

Cohen, who averaged 20 points a game during his junior season, said heading into the spring he had a goal of raising his profile among college coaches, and he's done just that.

"I didn't really know what to expect coming into the EYBL circuit," Cohen said. "I knew it was going to be good competition. I was just coming in to see if I could get a couple of scholarships. My dream was to always go high major and I've accomplished that this spring."

According to Cohen, Wisconsin-Green Bay, Providence, Marquette, Minnesota, LaSalle and George Washington are among the schools that have offered him a scholarship. Illinois, Iowa and Kentucky have also reached out.

"It's going really good," Cohen told "My recruitment has picked up a lot and I've been getting a lot of offers lately so it's going pretty good. "

Cohen said he doesn't have any visits set up for the near future.

"I'm waiting until after school," Cohen said. "I want to finish academics strong and then I'm going to take visits after."
