Wisconsin’s basketball program received a major boost on Tuesday afternoon, getting a pledge from a transfer guard out of UW-Green Bay.

Kamari McGee, a 6-foot freshman guard, verbally committed to Wisconsin on Tuesday, making his announcement with a social media post. He proved to be one of the top newcomers to the Horizon League throughout the 2021-22 season.

McGee will provide the Badgers with a major scoring threat at the guard position.

In his lone season at Green Bay, McGee averaged 11.6 points and 2.8 rebounds per game. He was named the Horizon League’s Freshman of the Week three times and earned Horizon League All-Freshman honors at season’s end.

McGee reached double figures in 16 of Green Bay’s 30 games last season. He exceeded the 20-point mark five times, including a career-best 24-point outing in a loss to Wright State.

McGee joins a Wisconsin team that won a share of the B1G regular season title last season. The Badgers also earned a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
