Lost in the string of football commits from this past week, the Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball team had a number of key visitors on campus last weekend too. Here is a rundown of who was on campus and what they had to say about their experience.
One of the top 2022 visitors from this past weekend was Braeden Moore. A 3-star wing from Nashville, Moore has a slew of high major offers from across the country, and it appears as though his official visit was a success. Moore is a 6-foot-8 forward that would fit nicely into what Wisconsin likes to do, as he is a strong three-point shooter. Moore also went so far as to say “a lot of people tell me I look like a Wisconsin player” according to Evan Flood which is...an interesting statement.
Moore is slated to officially visit Nebraska and Rutgers next.
Another marquee visitor that took an official visit to Madison over the weekend was 6-foot-4 point guard Rowan Brumbaugh. The lanky 2022 prospect has been linked to Wisconsin for a while now, but this was his first time on campus.
Like Moore, Brumbaugh represents one of the top targets in the class for the Badgers, and with two scholarships available he is one of the lone guards with a committable offer at this time. While he did not personally tweet out a reaction from this visit, his high school did and from all indications, the visit went incredibly well. He previously took an official visit to Georgetown earlier this summer and is also expected to visit Northwestern this upcoming weekend.
Expect Wisconsin to be one of his top choices come time for a decision after a strong on-campus experience.

Last up is Braden Huff. The 3-star forward out of Illinois was scheduled to be on campus, but there has been no indication from the Twitterverse that he made the trip. There was chatter that he may just stop by campus on an unofficial visit and save his officials for later, but what IS known is that his recruitment continues to take off. Over the weekend the sweet-shooting lefty added offers from Vanderbilt, Illinois and Minnesota. His list of potential schools continues to balloon, making him less likely to join the fold at this point.
Moore and Brumbaugh appear to be the most likely candidates for the 2022 class, but the recent turmoil from this past week could play a role moving forward in their recruitments.
The last piece of recruiting news from this past week as it pertains to Wisconsin was the commitment of Seth Trimble (Menomonee Falls) to North Carolina. He always seemed like a pipe dream, but the in-state standout will follow the footsteps of his older brother JP Tokoto and will be a Tar Heel.
