Stewartville's Will Tschetter commits to Michigan over Gophers

The Tigers' forward led the state with 33.6 points per game.
Will Tschetter

Stewartville High School forward Will Tschetter capped off a blazing-hot recruitment period by announcing his commitment to play basketball at the University of Michigan on Monday. The Tigers' senior also considered offers from several other schools, including the Gophers.

Tschetter wasn't a household name in the state prior to last season, but the 6-foot-8, 225-pounder burst onto the scene by leading the state with 33.6 points with 11 rebounds per game in his senior year.

Tschetter is currently rated as a three-star recruit and the 28th-ranked power forward in the nation, according to 247Sports. He's also ranked as the state's second-best prospect behind Minnehaha Academy's Chet Holmgren, who considered by many to be the No. 1 recruit in the nation.

Holmgren recently announced seven schools he's considering: Minnesota, Michigan, Gonzaga, Ohio State, Georgetown, Memphis and North Carolina.

While Richard Pitino has done a solid job on the recruiting trail, landing Alexandria's Treyton Thompson, a 4-star recruit who is currently playing at La Luminaire School in La Porte, Indiana, a lot of homegrown talent has gone elsewhere with Tschetter the most recent in that list.
