2008 Recruit

Recommended Posts

This from Chicago Hoops:


Class of 2008 Hersey High School star Luke Fabrizius has picked up scholarship offers from Iowa State, Marquette, Dayton, Albany and Northwestern. Fabrizius, a 6-8 forward, is known for his ability to drop shots from beyond the arc. His recruiting stock began to rise during the high school season, and then soared over the summer while playing for the Illinois Warriors. Look for his stock to continue to rise.


More on his from the Illinois Prep site:


Luke Fabrizius, a 6'8 sophomore from Hersey High School in Arlington Heights, IL, has rapidly emerged as one of the top prospects in Illinois from the class of 2008.  Fabrizius first burst onto the scene last month with his outstanding play at the Pekin Holiday Tournament, which included going head-to-head against Peoria Richwood's 6'9 Bill Cole, who has already committed to the University of Illinois.


Illinois Prep Bulls-eye got another first hand look at Fabrizius last night in a key conference battle versus Buffalo Grove.  The following is our perspective on Fabrizius' performance as well as his skill level.


Fabrizius was tremendous against Buffalo Grove, scoring 19 points to go along with 8 rebounds in leading Hersey to a 59-50 win.  However, the most telling stat was the fact that Fabrizius shot 5-8 from the 3-point line, including a stretch in the third quarter where he nailed four in a row from beyond the arc.


Fabrizius is a smooth shooting big man with near perfect form and a quick release.  Moreover, he does not need much room to get his shot off.  If you give him any room whatsoever from behind the stripe it is usually money in the bank.  With his ability to spot up and consistently knock down shots from long range,  at the present time Illinois Prep Bulls-eye finds Fabrizius comparable in many ways to former University of Iowa big man Brad Lohaus. 


While Fabrizius is most known for his perimeter shooting, we have also seen indications that he can post up and score down on the block.  While the majority of Fabrizius' points do come from the perimeter, he has shown that he has good hands, can run the floor and finish. 


Although Fabrizius has a thick frame and gets his share of boards, we would still like to see him continue to get stronger so that he can become even more of a force down low as well as from the 3-point stripe.  In addition, Fabrizius will also need to work on his ball skills and eventually show that he can hit shots off the dribble as opposed to being simply a set shooter.


There is no question that several college programs have already begun to take notice of Fabrizius' game.  Illinois Prep Bulls-eye undoubtedly believes that Fabrizius ranks among the top ten sophomores in Illinois and he is sure to be on the radar of several D1 schools at both the mid and high major levels before it is all said and done.

I’ve been trying to look up some more info on this guy. Anyone been able to find anything new on him? It appears some big time schools are after him; hopefully us recruiting him early can pay of in him signing. It appears he is garnering interest from the likes of Iowa State, Indiana, Georgia Tech, Michigan State, Marquette etc. Can he sign a LOI now even though he wouldn’t be on the team until ’08-’09?
