Fischer started four years at Ripley, where he finished with 2,210 points and led the state in scoring during his junior (32.0 points per game) and senior seasons (37.0 ppg).
He was rated a three-star recruit by Rivals and Scout with the ability to shoot, distribute the ball and rebound effectively.
He chose Wake Forest over Marshall, Ohio University, University of Central Florida and Virginia Commonwealth University.
It's not a decision he regrets.
"I think coach Bzdelik and his staff are great offensive minds," he said. "I wouldn't characterize as it not being a good fit. I just think I could highlight my strengths elsewhere."
Fischer's focus during his time at Wake Forest was helping the Demon Deacons win, which they only did with a .419 winning percentage.
"I always want to help my team win in any way possible," he said. "The competitive side comes out in me sometimes during the season. After the season you step back and look at things."
Fischer wouldn't reveal where he's looking, but said he is willing to sit out the NCAA Division I requirement of one season to remain at the highest level of college basketball.
"There's no question I'm doing Division I," he said. "I think I proved in the ACC that I can play at the highest level in the nation. Noone wants to sit out a year, but it does bring good things. You can work on your game, get stronger. I don't really look at anything as a bad opportunity. Sitting out a year, I approach it as a year to get better."
