Min­nesota big man com­mits for 2018 class

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - SPORTS - JEFF POTRYKUS

MADI­SON - Wis­con­sin will be adding a big man to its 2018-’19 fresh­man bas­ket­ball class.

Joe Hed­strom, a 6-foot-10, 200-pound cen­ter from Hop­kins (Minn.) High School, has given UW an oral com­mit­ment.

Hed­strom, who plays for the Min­nesota Comets AAU team, joins Whitnall se­nior guard Tyler Herro in the ‘18 class.

How­ever, Hed­strom will be a walk-on for his first year and then go on schol­ar­ship for his re­main­ing sea­sons.

That al­lows UW to have one more schol­ar­ship for the ‘18 class. UW is re­cruit­ing Tay­lor Cur­rie, a 6-8, 200-pound for­ward from Clark­ston, Mich. Cur­rie orig­i­nally com­mit­ted to Michi­gan but re­cently de­com­mit­ted.

Hed­strom had schol­ar­ship of­fers from Utah, Boise State and sev­eral mid-ma­jor schools.
