On Tuesday afternoon, Wisconsin basketball continued their solid start to the 2023 recruiting cycle by landing four-star big man Gus Yalden.

Yalden is an Appleton, Wis. native who has had multiple stops throughout his high school career. The four-star prospect (per 247Sports) is currently playing at the Asheville School and for City Rocks on the club circuit.

Yalden had offers from the likes of Nebraska, Rutgers, Auburn, and Arkansas before ultimately choosing Wisconsin. He joins Michigan native John Blackwell as one of the first two pieces in the Badgers’ class of 2023.
