Report: Wisconsin top transfer portal target to announce commitment on Monday

The former Omaha forward is a big-ticket prospect for the teams still in the running. The 6’7″ forward averaged 20.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.6 assists on 45% shooting and 35% from 3 as a junior at Omaha in 2023-24. He is 247Sports’ 48th-ranked transfer and seventh-ranked small forward in the portal.

Fidler played high school basketball with Wisconsin point guard Chucky Hepburn, making this connection an easy one to make. He’d seamlessly fill the vacant role left by star wing A.J. Storr and would be the dynamic shooter that the team currently lacks.
