Just days after learning freshman guard Lorne Bowman would be leaving the program, Wisconsin moved quickly to find his replacement in the backcourt.
Earlier today, UW-Green Bay transfer Kamari McGee announced that he would staying in his home state of Wisconsin and committing to the Badgers.
The former Racine Saint Catherine’s standout started 21 games for the Phoenix this past season, averaging 11.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.9 assists in 29 minutes per game.
Under head coach Will Ryan, McGee was named a three-time Horizon League Freshman of the Week, and also a member of the Horizon League All-Freshman team.
Wisconsin is getting a team first player that will do whatever it takes to win, and should make for a solid option leading the Badgers second unit.
The 6-foot-0, 170-pound guard plays under control, has the ability to create for himself, and does his best work offensively when utilizing ball screens to get off his knockdown mid-range jumper.
McGee, a native of Racine, will join the program with three years of eligibility remaining.
