One of Wisconsin's true freshman on next year's team will be 6'7" forward Mike Bruesewitz. Mike, whose nickname is Bruiser, is mostly a power forward, but like the Badger he is mostly compared to, Joe Krabbenhoft, he is a very talented ball-handler for his size. His high school coach has basically said that Mike is another Krabbenhoft with better shooting form, albeit that's not saying much. He is a great defender and his team played defense similar to Wisconsin's, so he won't have to spend most of the first practices learning what Bo wants on defense. It should be interesting to see if he's talented enough to crack the rotation for next season. I'm projecting the team to be 9 deep already, I don't know if Bo goes to #10 or 11 (with Diamond Taylor).
