Tim Jarmusz, a 6-foot-6, 165-pound shooting guard from Oshkosh (Wisc.) West, committed to Bo Ryan and the Wisconsin Badgers on Friday.
The Badgers locked Jarmusz, a good looking perimeter shooter, up before the busy July period. Jarmusz picked up an offer from Wisconsin on Thursday and decided to take advantage of it.
"Ever since I was a little kid shooting hoops in my driveway I wanted to go to Wisconsin," Jarmusz said.
The rising prospect spoke highly of Ryan and his staff.
"The coaches are all of high character and just good people," Jarmusz said. "I want to surround myself with good people because when you do that, good things happen. It seems like a really good fit for me."
Jarmusz brings a big time winning résumé to the Big Ten. As a junior, he helped Oshkosh West win a state title during a 26-0 season. In his three years on varsity, he has only lost two games. The Badgers are getting a prospect with a winning ability with a big body and a soft perimeter shot.
"I'll be a perimeter player and I think I can cause some match up problems because I'm pretty diverse. I can post the smaller guards up but I can step out and hit the perimeter shot," he said. "I hope I can help out by playing the swing."
Jarmusz also considered Loyola-Chicago, Northwestern and Wisconsin-Green Bay, he said. He'll hit the road in July with his Fox Valley Skillz AAU team at the Kentucky Hoopfest and the Big Time tournament in Las Vegas.
