Nze commits to Milwaukee

Described as “potentially a more athletic Anthony Hill,” Arrowhead senior post player Bryce Nze made his verbal commitment to play for Rob Jeter and the Milwaukee Panthers as a member of the class of 2016.

The 6’7″ forward is the first post player of 2016 for Milwaukee. Joining wing forward Max Curran, Nze will likely be an immediate player for Milwaukee. At his height and size, Nze will be called on to help with the void in the post once Matt Tiby and J.J. Panoske graduate next summer.

Possessing the frame to build a monster of a player is a big part of Nze’s draw. He has built himself up to 215 pounds from just 175 last year. The senior forward broke a bone in his foot a couple years ago, re-injuring it later and losing months from his development in high school.

A post player with Nze’s ceiling is usually a hard sell for Milwaukee, since high-majors usually have the number early. Without the foot injury, it’s likely that Nze would have had a different set of offers to look at besides Milwaukee, the program who offered him first. Past the Panthers, Nze carried offers from South Dakota, Lindenwood and Tennessee State. He had interest from Wisconsin, but the Badgers soured on Nze after his foot injuries.

Untimely foot injuries have worked for Milwaukee in the past, as several schools stopped recruiting Kyle Kelm after he broke his foot.
