Wragge Shoots His Way Into The Spotlight

Need a shooter? How about the ace stroker from Minnesota? Ethan Wragge, a senior, told Scout.com he's gone from being a priority recruit in the Dakotas to receiving national interest.

After the AAU Nationals, Ethan Wragge's stock was at an all-time high. Savvy recruiters paid close attention as the 6-foot-7 Eden Prairie (Minn.) High shooter smoked 3-pointers (9 in one game!).

Weeks after his white-hot shooting performance in Orlando, we learned that last season Wragge averaged 16 points a game, shot 47% from downtown and made 91% of his free throws.

Prior to July, Wragge was big in the Dakotas but virtually nowhere else. North Dakota State and South Dakota State extended overtures. Wisconsin-Green Bay beat everyone to the punch when it offered after his sophomore season.

This week, Wragge visited Marquette and sports scholarships from Penn State, Northern Iowa, Colorado State, Drake and Creighton.

"I just got back from Marquette yesterday and I loved it there," Wragge said Wednesday night. "I really liked it there. Coach Collins, one of the assistants, offered me right after Orlando."

Heading into September, Wragge is fond of two programs. "Marquette leads with Creighton. I've been there and I've been to Creighton on an unofficial. I like the private school and they're both semi-close to home and fit the style of my play. I think I fit in well at either one."

Creighton hosts Wragge Sept. 6 and Penn State Sept. 27. He's likely to spent time this month on Marquette's campus in an official capacity.
