As expected to happen this week, Jason Bohannon, the No. 100 ranked player in the class of 2006, has made his intentions known as to where he will play his college basketball. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound combo guard from Linn-Marr High School in Marion, Iowa, will play in the Big Ten, but he will not play for his state school.
"Jason committed to Wisconsin today," said his AAU coach Hank Huddleson of Martin Brothers Select. "I think he will do fine there. He just needs to get stronger. He has all the offensive tools. It's just a matter of strength."
One of the most attractive qualities of Bohannon as a prospect is his ability to excel at either guard position. He can both run a team and distribute the ball, and he can score points when they are difficult to come by.
"Jason can bring a lot to the table," said Bohannon. "He knows how to score the ball, and he's developing into a very good point guard."
Bohannon, who averaged 23 points per game as a junior, was also considering Iowa, North Carolina State and Stanford.

Bohanon can score it and pass it. He is a very good ball handler with great court awareness. He shoots a solid deep ball and looks to have the ability to make the tough shot on the move.
