One of the top 2024 forwards out of Wisconsin recently made their commitment. Will Hornseth announced his commitment to Northern Iowa over a list of other offers. 

Over the past year Hornseth has been a part of a couple of championship teams. The 6’8” forward is coming off a junior high school season in which he averaged 16.6 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks a game in part of a perfect 30-0 season as they captured the Wisconsin state championship. Prior to that, he was a huge part of the 16U Wisconsin Blizzard team captured the NY2LA Association championship last summer.

Illinois State, St. Thomas, Toledo, and Wisconsin-Green Bay had all also offered the skilled power forward. “I know they are the right fit for me,” Hornseth said on why he decided to make his commitment now. 

“I think one of the biggest draws for me is the relationship aspect,” he first said about why he chose Northern Iowa. “The coaches and I really get along and I can not only see myself playing for them but thriving with their help. The other players and I seem to get along great as well. I know they value me as myself and what I have to offer. They respect me more as an individual to do more than just basketball.”

Part of the appeal of Northern Iowa is how he sees himself fitting in on the hardwood. “They rely heavily on a four, five who are skilled and versatile. A priority on passing and a team offense is important for me and they run this through my position. Being able to also be my own player and bring my talents to the floor is a must have as well. I know they value me and those talents and will allow me to thrive as a player.”

Hornseth and the Wisconsin Blizzard will look to repeat their NY2LA Association title starting today at the Final Chapter tournament.
