<b>Scout.com –</b> If you're in Milwaukee and want to grab a bite before the big game you go to Goolsby's. If someone asks you who the best player ever from the city is, you say Terry Porter. What do you do if asked who the best freshman in the city is? Simple, read this article.
This is the first in series of profiles Scout.com has planned on cities across the country. Each profile is designed to be a snapshot of the up and coming talent in various metropolitan areas. Up Next: Houston.
Our research led us to believe that the city can be counted on for 2-3 high-major prospects each year but overall, the metropolitan area isn't quite as deep as we initially thought. There is a potential special player in 2008's Lucious and the younger groups look solid.
