Four-star prospect Milan Momcilovic out of Pewaukee (Wis.) High tells On3 he’s down to six schools — Iowa State, Minnesota, Virginia, Michigan State, UCLA, and Louisville.

The 6-foot-8 power forward is ranked as the No. 45 overall prospect in the 2023 class, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

Momcilovic, a Wisconsin native, additionally received scholarship offers from Texas, Ole Miss, Virginia Tech, Creighton, Xavier, Northwestern, Marquette, and others.

As of this writing, Momcilovic has taken official visits to Iowa State, Minnesota, Virginia, Michigan State and UCLA. He does not have any others currently planned.

Momcilovic talks finalists

Iowa State: “They have been recruiting me the longest and I have been one of their top priorities. I’m impressed with Coach Otzelberger’s success this past season and making it to the Sweet 16.”

Minnesota: “They had a great campus with impressive facilities. Coach (Ben) Johnson seems to be taking their basketball program in the right direction.”

Virginia: “They have a proven track record of success with their team and their players. Coach (Tony) Bennett really creates a family atmosphere there.”

Michigan State: Legendary coach with a great history of successful teams and players. Coach (Tom) Izzo seems to be really invested in his players.

UCLA: “Legendary program with recent successes as well. Coach (Mick) Cronin has done a great job in a short time.”

Louisville: “They seem to be putting the right pieces together to be successful again. Coach (Kenny) Payne really emphasizes players achieving their goals and how they are going to get there.”

Scouting Summary

Milan Momcilovic is a skilled post player. He is confident with the ball in his hands and can make plays from multiple areas on the floor. The athleticism will be a question, but he has an array of ball fakes and footwork to be able to get a shot off. He has good hands. I would like to see him rebound more, and the jump shot release is inconsistent from three, but he has touch and can step out and take a shot. He can draw fouls well in the mid-range and mid-post, and get to the free-throw line. – Jamie Shaw’s On3’s National Recruiting Analyst
