Rerouting To Cheeseland – Clarkston Cager Currie Says ‘On, Wisconsn’

He’s staying in the Big Ten. He’s just moving addresses.
Cheese, anyone?
Clarkston basketball star Taylor Currie committed to the University of Wisconsin Tuesday, a month after he de-committed from the University of Michigan. The 6-foot-9 Currie is one of the best big fellas in the state.
On Clarkston’s Class A state title team last winter, he averaged nearly a double-double, impressing fans and scouts alike with his performance during March Madness – an effort that upped his recruiting stock significantly.
“I’m grateful to announce I’m a Wisconsin Badger,” Currie Tweeted out Tuesday night.
Currie is considered a 3-star prospect by most scouting services. He also recently received a scholarship offer from Xavier. Clarkston is expected to be the No. 1 squad in the state this year and will most likely contend for a Top 10 ranking in the nation.
During the offseason, Currie has added a perimeter game to his offensive arsenal. On the AAU circuit this past spring and summer, he showed his newfound proficiency shooting the rock beyond the arc. As of this moment, Currie is still undecided if he’ll graduate high school in 2018 or 2019.
Following his commitment to Michigan, he reclassified to the Class of 2018, however, after his de-commitment earlier this fall, word broke that he was reconsidering the reclassification.
Wisconsin Badger websites are reporting Currie is committed to the school’s 2018 hoops class.
