Wisconsin basketball: Just last month, the Wisconsin Badgers scored a huge win ahead of the 2024-25 season after they successfully recruited four-star guard Daniel Freitag. The highly touted youngster was also linked to the likes of Baylor and California, but in the end, Freitag committed to Wisconsin.
The 6-foot-2 point guard has now made a significant decision on his future ahead of his senior year in high school, which could have a significant impact on the Badgers as well.
Wisconsin Basketball: Daniel Freitag Will Stay in Minnesota for Senior Year
On Sunday, Freitag announced his intention to remain in Minnesota for his fourth and final year in high school. He will attend Breck School in Golden Valley, Minnesota to play in his senior year. Freitag backed out of his earlier decision to transfer to Southern California Academy in Northridge, California.
Freitag himself made the announcement via Twitter on Saturday:
“After much consideration, I’ve decided to stay in Minnesota and attend Breck School for my senior year. #TimeWillTell,” he wrote in his caption.

I can’t help but comment on the photo he chose to post for his announcement. That’s one pretty muscular kid. If you ask me, this dude already looks like he’s more than ready to play some college ball. Badgers fans are only right to get excited about this young prospect.
Wisconsin Basketball: How Does Daniel Freitag’s Decision Impact Badgers?
While Freitag has technically already committed to play his college basketball for Wisconsin, nothing is still set in stone. We are all too familiar with players de-committing from their respective schools, which incidentally, Freitag just did after initially announcing that he was headed to Southern California Academy for his senior year.
This only means that this young man has a tendency to change his mind. However, the fact that he’s staying in Minnesota does give the Badgers a better chance of Freitag living up to his commitment to Wisconsin next year. Moving to the West Coast would have increased the likelihood of him de-committing, so Badgers fans should probably be happy about Freitag’s recent announcement here.
