6-6 Forward from Madison, Wisconsin commits to Santa Clara.
Here is a youtube clip. I really like his shot.
Reminds me (not in terms of play, but in recruitment) of Brownridge. A guy from the midwest who realized scrapping ice of his car in the Horizon League isn’t quite as appealing as the WCC.
Wonder if Madison/Wisconsin is an under-recruited area…
I know very little about the midwest.
I believe we still have 3 spots left to fill. (Big E, Healy, Pugh, Caruso will need to be replaced and Wardlow from this summer as well.)
My guess is they leave one spot open for a potential grad transfer since we should be quite good for KJ and Hauser’s senior year and this might be our best way to get immediate help. Probably going to have to take a flyer on a project rim protector and hope he can be developed…and then best available after that.
I like that Wertz has a 6 foot 9 wingspan. He should be able to guard many positions in the WCC. And Justice appears to have a very efficient shooting motion.
Outstanding, welcome Keshawn!
PattyMac- I don’t think he’s a post, more like a traditional small forward or 3. Verbal commits lists him as a SF and 95% of his highlight video is perimeter shots, dribble drives from the perimeter and fast break stuff, very little post play. I imagine he might play some 4 in a smaller lineup but will be out in the perimeter not in the post.
