July Recap: Luke Fischer

Holding three offers entering the month of July, including an offer from in-state Marquette, Germantown forward Luke Fischer played well enough in Las Vegas and the Wisconsin Dells to earn two new scholarship offers last week, including another in-state offer.

MADISON - Luke Fischer will only be a junior this coming school year at Germantown High School but he's already compiling a nice list of scholarship offers.

Already holding offers from Creighton, Indiana and Marquette, the 6-9 forward received a scholarship offer from Boston College Wednesday and an offer from Green Bay Thursday.

"When Boston College offered me, they said they were a real big man oriented team. I've heard the same thing before about Boston College so that interests me and I think that could be a good fit," Fischer told Badger Nation. "Brian Wardle, the Green Bay head coach, told me if I end up coming to Green Bay, I could end up being able to contribute right away because they will lose players at my position and they think I could come in and contribute my freshmen year.

"When I spoke with the coaches at Creighton, Indiana, and Marquette we spoke about some basic stuff on how I could possibly fit in their system as well, and what the campus has to offer."

Fischer kept busy this month playing in a couple of tournaments with his AAU team the Wisconsin Swing.

"I was real happy with how we played as a team this past month," Fischer said. "We did some nice things as a team and in result we were able to find success in the tournaments we played in. We played in the NY2LA tournament in Milwaukee, we were able to reach the final four of the Fab 48 in Las Vegas and we won the Dells Exposure Classic last week.

"I was really happy with how I played in Las Vegas the three days that we were there. I felt like that was the best basketball I played all month. I shot the ball consistently, rebounded, got my teammates involved and I played good defense."

Although Fischer played well in Las Vegas, he can't say the same when the Wisconsin Swing was competing in the NY2LA tournament in Milwaukee.

"The NY2LA tournament in Milwaukee I struggled a bit," Fischer recalled. "I did some good things here and there, but it wasn't consistent and that's what I'm trying to become more of a consistent player on the court. If I can consistently play good basketball like I did in Las Vegas, I feel like it'll be hard for teams to stop me."

Although Fischer has already an impressive offer list, he's still patiently waiting for the Badgers to extend him an offer.

"They're interested in me and even though I don't have an offer from Wisconsin currently at the moment, they're still high on my list," Fischer said. "Coach Bo Ryan and coach Greg Gard have been at most of my games this past month. When I spoke with Coach Gard, he told me to keep playing hard and he, along with the other coaches at Wisconsin, would like to see me become a stronger rebounder. I've been trying to improve in that area of my game this summer.

"Coach Ryan was at a couple of my games in Las Vegas. They were also at some of my games in Milwaukee and in the Dells for the Dell Exposure Classic."

Fischer would like to go on some visits this coming school year and see the different campuses.

"I would like to set up visits to Indiana, Marquette, and Creighton sometime this school year and be able to see the campus," he said. "I also will most likely will take a visit sometime in the fall and attend a Badgers football game. Also hopefully I can see a Badgers basketball game to sometime during a visit this year."
