This past week, the top basketball talents across the country were all in North Augusta, South Carolina, at the Nike EYBL Peach Jam.

The final live period represented the last opportunity of the summer for recruits to showcase their talents in front of high-major coaches from across the country.

Representing the Wisconsin Badgers was 2023 four-star forward Gus Yalden out of Asheville, North Carolina, who made the Nike EYBL Peach Jam 2nd Team.

The 6-foot-8, 240-pound F, who plays with City Rocks (NY), averaged 15.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game for the week.

Per 247Sports, he is the nation’s No. 12 ranked center in the class of 2023 and the No. 93 ranked player in the country.

Yalden is Greg Gard’s second commitment from a top-100 recruit during his coaching tenure and the first since Nate Reuvers in 2017.
