Tyler Wahl – Forward – So.
Even as a freshman, Tyler Wahl was one of the first players off of the bench and making contributions. He was still relatively raw, but he made some nice plays throughout the season. He will be one of the players the Badgers lean on to provide a spark off the bench this year and will surely be a big part of this program’s future.
He played in all 31 games last year and started in three of them. He averaged 15 minutes per game and scored 2.6 points per game on 43% shooting. I’d expect all of those numbers to go up this season.
Trevor Anderson – Guard – Sr.
Trevor Anderson came to Wisconsin after transferring from UW-Green Bay. He has provided some valuable depth at the point guard position when he has been able to stay healthy. He missed a good chunk of the 2018-2019 season after he suffered a knee injury.
He stayed healthy last season, playing in all 31 games. He played about 12 minutes a game and contributed 1.8 points per game and 1.2 assists per game. Having a veteran presence on the bench will be important, especially if Trice and/or Davison get into foul trouble.
Lorne Bowman II – Guard – Fr.
Lorne Bowman is a true freshman guard out of Detroit, Michigan. He was a 3-star recruit and was the 181st overall player in the 2020 class according to 247Sports.
Bowman will surely get some early playing time this season to get his feet wet. Trice, Davison, and Anderson will all be moving on after this season. Bowman will need some experience this season to get ready for the future of Wisconsin basketball.
Jonathan Davis – Guard – Fr.
Jonathan (Johnny) Davis was a big-time recruiting win for the Badgers. He comes to Madison from La Crosse Central, the same school Kobe King is from. He and his twin brother Jordan committed to Wisconsin even after King, with whom the Davis twins are close with, announced he would transfer from Wisconsin.
Like Bowman, look for Davis to get some early playing time this season. He will be expected to bring some scoring off the bench with the second unit. Davis could be the go-to scorer on the Badgers in the next year or two.
Ben Carlson – Forward – Fr.
Ben Carlson is the perfect example of the type of player that Wisconsin loves to have in the post. Carlson was a 4-star forward out of St. Paul, Minnesota. He was the 98th ranked player in the country in the 2020 class.
Carlson will get some early playing time, subbing in for Reuvers and Potter. Greg Gard and the Badgers will be depending on Carlson to provide some big minutes this season.
