Wisconsin basketball gets first commit for 2019

Wisconsin has its first basketball commit in the Class of 2019.

Early Thursday night, forward Tyler Wahl (Lakeville, Minn.) took to Twitter to announce he’d committed to the Badgers.



A 4-star recruit, according to 247 Sports, the 6-foot-7, 200-pound Wahl chose Wisconsin over offers from Minnesota, Iowa State, Northwestern, Butler and others.

Considered the No. 4 player in the state of Minnesota and ranked as the 126th-best player in the country, Wahl is from the same high school — Lakeville North — as Wisconsin sophomore forward Nate Reuvers.

Wahl becomes just the latest prospect that coach Greg Gard has grabbed out of Wisconsin’s neighbor to the west, joining the likes of Brad Davison, Jordan Taylor, Jon Leuer, Mike Bruesewitz and Jared Berggren.
