The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team will have a lot of new faces next season.
Badgers coach Bo Ryan officially announced Wednesday afternoon that Aaron Moesch, a 6-foot-8 forward from Green Bay Southwest, will join the program as a walk-on next season.
Moesch joins five scholarship players in the 2013 recruiting class: forwards Nigel Hayes (Toledo, Ohio) and Vitto Brown (Bowling Green, Ohio) and guards Bronson Koenig (La Crosse), Jordan Hill (Pasadena, Calif.) and Riley Dearring (Minnetonka, Minn).
Moesch averaged 18.4 points and 12.1 rebounds as a senior at Green Bay Southwest.
“We’re excited to have Aaron join the Badgers program,” Ryan said in a statement. “He is a terrific young man, fantastic student, and comes from a very supportive family.
“He had an excellent career at Green Bay Southwest and we’re looking forward to having him join us soon. Aaron will be an excellent addition to our program and the University of Wisconsin in general.
“Aaron has a very high basketball IQ that allows him to learn quickly on the court. I’ve always had an admiration for student-athletes that want to challenge themselves at the highest level both on the court and in the classroom and Aaron is ready and anxious to attack those challenges.”
