Wisconsin recruit named AP state Player of the Year
Wisconsin quarterback recruit Myles Buckett has won the AP state high school player of the year after a tremendous senior season.
He completed 206 of 289 passes and finished with 3,427 yards, 36 touchdowns, and only 4 interceptions.
Per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, that single-season yardage total is tied for 8th best in school history. His touchdowns also rank 19th all-time for a season.
Buckett also completed 71.3% of his passes as he led his school (Franklin) to a state championship. He’s still watched the replay of that state championship game a few times, per the same article linked above.
“Looking back, you can see how much fun we were having,” he wrote. “Us seniors playing in our last game together, the second and third looks (of the game) can show Franklin football just going out and putting on a show.”
Buckett is a 3-star prospect and the No. 7 player in his home state in the 2022 class per 247Sports Composite. He’s also the No. 41 QB recruit in the nation and the No. 696 overall recruit, regardless of position.
