MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin has signed the son of former NBA guard Rod Strickland and a 7-footer from Minnesota to its latest recruiting class.
Six-foot-2 guard Tai Strickland and center Joe Hedstrom signed letters of intent on Wednesday. They will be eligible starting this fall, joining November signee Taylor Currie.
Strickland averaged 17 points, seven rebounds and three assists as a high school senior in Tampa, Florida. Coach Greg Gard says Strickland is an ideal fit in Madison with his leadership skills and pedigree.
