Seymour boys basketball coach Jon Murphy has confirmed Green Bay has extended a scholarship offer to one his star players, junior Sandy Cohen.
Cohen, a first-team Bay Conference pick, recently visited the campus and Murphy said he enjoyed the visit.
Cohen, a 6-foot-5, guard, averaged 16.4 points per game as he along with fellow junior Dakota Oskey, also a first-team Bay pick, led the Thunder to a sectional semifinal appearance this season before losing to eventual Division 2 state champion Pulaski.
Murphy said Cohen will make his college decision after the AAU season. Cohen is ranked as the 10th best junior in the state by wissports.net.
As for Oskey, he has been offered by Michigan Tech, a Division II school. Oskey, a 6-3 guard, led the Thunder at 16.6 ppg. and was selected to FOX 11's Large Division all-area basketball team.
Oskey is ranked as the 22nd best junior in the state by wissports.net.
Cohen is the third area player to be offered a scholarship by Green Bay. Also, West De Pere's Cody Schwartz (No. 5-ranked sophomore by wissports.net) and De Pere's Brevin Pritzl (No. 6-ranked sophomore by wissports.net) have been offered. Furthermore, Little Chute's Turner Botz and Kenneth Lowe will enroll next season at Green Bay.
If Phoenix coach Brian Wardle signs each local player he's offered, Green Bay would have five players from the area on his roster, starting in 2015.
