On Friday afternoon, Wisconsin men's basketball team received a commitment from one of the best players in Metro Detroit. John Blackwell, a 2023 guard, announced his commitment to the Badgers.
Blackwell plays for a talented Bloomfield Hills Brother Rice boys basketball club with a team of three next-level players. This past season, the 6-foot-3 guard averaged 13 points, five assists, and four assists as Brother Rice played one of the state's most dangerous games. He also shot 49 percent from the 3-point range.
