Amongst the craziness that is the college basketball transfer portal, the Wisconsin Badgers had two of their former players make key decisions on Thursday regarding their future endeavors.
6-foot-11 forward Nate Reuvers announced that he would be pursuing a professional career after signing with an agent. Reuvers had previously entered his name into the transfer portal following a four-year career with the Badgers, but that was primarily to keep all of his available options open, including the possibility of returning to Wisconsin for another year.
I will be hiring an agent and starting my professional basketball career. This is my dream and I love this game. Thank you to everyone that has helped me on my journey.— Nathan Reuvers (@Reuvers35) April 8, 2021
His decisions to move on to the professional game is not unexpected, but there still remained a slight chance that he could have played another season collegiately up until today. Reuvers finished his career a four-year starter (he started over 50% of games his freshman season), and the program’s all-time leader in blocked shots.
Best of luck Nate at the professional level.
Also finalizing a decision Thursday was Trevor Anderson.
The reserve point-guard decided to take advantage of an extra year of eligibility following this past season, and he will be taking his talents to the Missouri Valley Conference at Valparaiso. Anderson took to social media to declare his intentions.
Anderson began his career at UW-Green Bay prior to walking-on with the Badgers after a tremendous high school campaign at Stevens Point. Most assumed that Anderson would remain inside the state at either Milwaukee or return to UW-Green Bay, but one has to assume that extended playing time will be readily available at Valparaiso.
Good luck Trevor!
