The Wisconsin Badgers will host a four-star recruit this weekend.
Daniel Freitag is set to head to Madison on an official visit with Greg Gard and company. Freitag is a two-sport athlete playing football and basketball for Jefferson High School in Minnesota. According to Rivals, he is the 39th-ranked player in the 2024 class.
Wisconsin Badgers to Host Daniel Freitag
This will be Freitag’s first official visit with the Badgers. The six-foot-two, 175-pound guard has made two unofficial visits to Wisconsin in March and September. Freitag was the first prospect Wisconsin offered in the 2024 class.
Five other schools have given the two-way guard a scholarship offer along with the Badgers. Those schools include other Big Ten programs like Iowa, Minnesota, and Nebraska. Baylor and Iowa State have also made official offers.
Freitag shows promise as a scorer and on the defensive end. He is a three-level scorer who easily finishes in the paint but also has a nice stroke from beyond the arc. His ability to cut through the defense while driving into the lane allows him to rack up easy buckets.
His scoring ability isn’t the only thing that makes him intriguing. Freitag showcases excellent playmaking ability, whether that be finding the open shooter while driving or threading the needle to the big men down low.
The Badgers are still in the running for the four-star guard. It will be a tough recruitment with other Big Ten programs throwing their hats in the ring, but Wisconsin will have a chance to meet with Freitag on an official visit for the first time.
The Wisconsin Badgers put together a solid 2023 recruiting class. Now, they shift focus to 2024 with a four-star guard in their sights.
