Wisconsin fans react to the biggest recruiting win of the Greg Gard era

On Friday, Wisconsin basketball added one of the top players in 2024 when four-star point guard Daniel Freitag committed to the Badgers.

Freitag has played both football and basketball in high school, and recently moved from Minnesota to California to commit to basketball. He will be playing for one of California’s top high school programs at Southern California Academy this fall.

The class of 2024 prospect is the fifth-highest-rated recruit in Wisconsin basketball history according to 247Sports’ all-time rankings.

Freitag chose the Badgers over Baylor, Iowa, Iowa State, Notre Dame, Virginia, and more.

Here is a look at Wisconsin fans and media reacting to his commitment:
