Wisconsin Basketball Will Host Highly Touted 2026 Recruit on Visit

Wisconsin basketball is officially throwing its hat into the ring for a talented 2026 recruit.

Greg Gard and the Wisconsin basketball coaching staff are wasting no time ramping up their recruiting efforts for Benet Academy’s sophomore standout, Gabe Sularski.

For those with a keen memory, you might recall that this is the same high school where Badgers legend Frank Kaminsky honed his craft.

Hailing from Lisle, Illinois, and representing the Chicago Meanstreets program on the Nike EYBL circuit, the 2026 prospect is already making waves on the recruiting trail. 

With scholarship offers pouring in from several division one programs like Bryant, Eastern Illinois, Illinois-Chicago, Illinois, Missouri, and Purdue, it’s clear that Sularski is a high-priority target for many.

Wisconsin Basketball to Receive an Unofficial Visit From Gabe Sularski

With high major programs quickly entering the race for Gabe Sularski, the Wisconsin basketball recruiting department worked quickly to arrange for him to visit campus.

On Saturday, Sularski will take an unofficial recruiting visit to Madison before checking out Michigan State the following weekend. It’s also worth noting that the Badgers football team takes on Ohio State that evening — which could make for an electric gameday atmosphere.

Sularski, standing at an impressive 6-foot-6, is already widely regarded as the crown jewel of the Illinois 2026 in-state class. His playmaking abilities as a versatile wing player and his three-point shooting have piqued the interest of the Wisconsin basketball coaches.

During the Nike E15 regular season, Sularski averaged 10.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 2.1 assists. Now, in his first season of varsity basketball, it’s likely that his stock will soar in the coming months.

As it stands, Wisconsin basketball has no known scholarship offers in the 2026 recruiting class. However, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Greg Gard change that after this weekend.
