Phoenix Land 2006 In-Stater

Tod Kowalczyk's Green Bay program landed one of the top players in the state of Wisconsin. The Phoenix now have a commitment from a 2006 prospect.

Wisconsin-Green Bay didn't waste any time. The Phoenix accepted a commitment from Class of 2006 guard Troy Cotton of Milwaukee (Wisc.) King.

"I think it's a great fit for me," Cotton said. "It's close to home and that's where I want to be. They're up and coming and I feel that I can help them with their success."

Cotton began feeling the interest from Green Bay hard shortly after completing his second year of high school ball at one of the state's powerhouse programs.

"After my sophomore season at King he recruited me hard. I went to Wisconsin's Advance Camp and one of the [Green Bay] assistant coaches was a teacher there and they really recruited me hard. They only had one scholarship and showed a lot interest to me and I wanted to go there."

Cotton, ranked as one of the better players in the state in the current junior class, brings a lot to the table for the Phoenix. He's a standout with Wisconsin DTA as well.

"I'm a shooter, combo guard and I can play the one. I'm a great defender, I hope. I usually get the best player on the opposite team every time I play. I'm competitive and I play hard every time I step on the floor."
