Wisconsin basketball top 2024 signee wins Minnesota state championship

Wisconsin top class of 2024 signee Daniel Freitag led the Breck School to the Minnesota 2A state championship on Saturday.

The future Badger point guard dropped 33 points in the 76-72 win, including several clutch baskets in the final minutes.

Freitag is currently ranked as the No. 114 overall player in the class of 2024, No. 10 point guard and No. 2 recruit from the state of Minnesota. He is Wisconsin’s top-ranked player in the class and figures to make an impact from day one.

He is the centerpiece of a Wisconsin recruiting class that currently ranks No. 57 in the nation with only Freitag and three-star shooting guard Jack Robinson committed.


Greg Gard and his staff will have more work to do this offseason to bolster the roster and set the Badgers up to snap the now seven-year Sweet Sixteen drought. But the program does appear to be set in the backcourt entering 2024-25, even with young guard Connor Essegian entered the transfer portal Sunday evening. Chucky Hepburn, John Blackwell, A.J. Storr, Max Klesmit and Freitag could create the program’s most exciting, and athletic, backcourt in decades.
