MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin has signed the son of former NBA guard Rod Strickland to its latest recruiting class.
Strickland averaged 17 points, seven rebounds and three assists as a high school senior in Tampa, Florida. Coach Greg Gard says Strickland is an ideal fit in Madison with his leadership skills and pedigree.
Hedstrom, of Hopkins, Minnesota, will enter as a walk-on. The 6-8 Currie, of Clarkston, Michigan, provides Wisconsin with frontcourt versatility.
They join a roster that is expected to have most of its core players back from a team that finished 15-18 and missed the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1998.
