Report: Wisconsin pursuing former James Madison star forward

Wisconsin is among the schools that have reached out to former James Madison star forward Terrence Edwards Jr., according to a report from 247Sports’ Luke Chaney.

Edwards averaged 17.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 2023-24 for the Dukes, doing so on 46% shooting and 34% from three. He put up 14 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in James Madison’s 72-61 NCAA Tournament win over the Badgers.

The 6’6″ forward would fill the possible void left by A.J. Storr, who recently declared for the NBA Draft while maintaining his college eligibility.

Wisconsin is included among the schools that have reportedly reached out to Edwards along with TCU, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, Xavier and Oregon.

Greg Gard has work to do in the transfer portal as he works to reload entering a 2024-25 season that is pivotal to his tenure as head coach. Wisconsin has not made the Sweet Sixteen since 2017, and desperately needs a team good enough to make a deep postseason run.
