Braham (Minn.) High School has just three more games to go for a repeat state championship and an undefeated season. Perhaps the biggest reason for their success is the stellar play of 6-foot-6, 175-pound shooting guard Isaiah Dahlman. The No. 34 ranked player presently has six schools at the top of his list.
"I like Michigan State, Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, Georgia Tech and Boston College," said Dahlman. "They have all offered. Right now I don't have a leader, but I'll know more after I take some visits this spring. I'll probably take all five visits.
"I want to meet the players and the coaches and get a feel for how I'll like it. I'm also looking forward to learning more about these programs."
Dahlman, who is averaging 28 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists per game, has received phone calls from his top six schools since the time coaches were allowed to call juniors.
The top prospect for the Howard Pulley AAU club, Dahlman has a sweet lefty stroke and a very good feel for the game. With the athleticism to put the ball on the floor and hit fade aways and other tough shots, Dahlman's main challenge for raising the level of his game is improving his strength.
'I think strength is a big factor in my improvement right now," he said. "As I get stronger, every area of my game will improve."
Dahlman carries a 3.7 GPA.
