The 2021 class continues to come into focus across the country with various late blooming prospects taking steps forward and becoming more visible with each passing month.  The state of Wisconsin is no exception to that and River Falls High School boasts two talented 2021 forwards that are making some noise this season.

While fellow junior Zachary Johnson has been the alpha in the River Falls attack throughout the season, 6-9 twins Jameson (J.T.) Dougherty and Liam Dougherty have delivered some solid junior campaigns as well.  Equipped with a plus length frame, Jameson has the ability to stretch the floor with range that extends beyond the arc.  Add to the mix an ability to score around the basket, solid instincts, and the ability to impact the game by collecting rebounds and it’s easy to see why he continues to look the part of a highly intriguing prospect that Division 1 and high level Division 2 colleges will be focused on this upcoming spring and summer.

Liam also boast a similar plus length frame and his impact is felt more on the defensive end at this point with rebounding and altering shots with his activity and instincts.  He’s shown flashes of range from beyond the arc and he’s also showed an improve touch around the basket.  Mix in solid rebounding instincts and there’s a lot of clay to mold with Liam and his best basketball lies ahead.

With the 2020 class slowly stepping aside and the 2021 class primed to be the central focus for colleges across the country in the coming months, both Dougherty brothers stand to be highly intriguing must watch prospects with each bringing a little something to the table.  Each looks primed for solid spring and summer campaigns and both could become solid stories in the state of Wisconsin moving forward.
