2021 C Wilhelm Breidenbach 4 star

Recommended Posts

Moves well. Finishes with both hands. Looks like he could put the ball on the floor. Drained a three. Obviously lacks a Big Ten frame at this time, but put about 25 pounds on him and he looks like he may be a great fit for Coach Hoiberg's system. Intrigued.

Breidenbach and his famed high school basketball program is currently in Portland playing in a holiday invitational tournament.  His school easily has 5 high major prospects on the team including 5 star Kentucky PG commit Devin Askew.  
 
I would say he's roughly 6'9'' with shoes.  He does not look like your typical basketball player but I definitely see why Hoiberg and company like him.  While the team doing pre-game shoot around he spent the majority of his time shooting free throws and making probably 90%.  He's got an extremely easy shot without many moving parts which is nice to see from a "big man".
 
In the game he was a true hustler.  He was running hard both on defense and offense, he was the guy calling out everything on defense, he was diving for loose balls on the floor, and battled in the paint.  He only attempted one 3 in the game and missed it but made a decent amount in pre-game.  He was skilled for a big man with his passing abilities and has good hands receiving the ball.  He was extremely limited when he put the ball on the floor though but that can be expected.
 
All in all he had 16 points and was 4/4 from the line with probably 7 rebounds and a couple blocked shots.  For as deep as his team is he's very much the number two to their 5 star PG and is probably why those two were the captains.  You could also see the respect his teammates have for him as they made sure in warmups he would get his "change" even when he didn't make a shot.
 
He would definitely fit the mold of big that Fred employs and is very cerebral on the court, which one would expect from a guy that's considered Stanford and has Ivy League offers.  I really hope he's N come next November.

Looks like Stanford and Nebraska are high on the list

Will he join us, Max Murrell, or somewhere else?

 

I was thinking he seems like a Max Murrell clone. Hope he chooses us over the team with a tree for a mascot.
