Wayzata(MN) High School forward Matthew Freytag announced today via Twitter that he has verbally committed to play his college hockey at the University of Wisconsin.
Proud and excited to announce that I'll be playing my college hockey at the University of Wisconsin. #Badgers— Matthew Freytag (@MattyTagz15) August 7, 2013
Freytag was a sophomore last year with Wayzata, and was a breakout player for the Trojans, scoring 20 goals and 12 assists against one of the state's toughest schedules, and helped lead Wayzata to an appearance in the state tournament. Freytag is a natural goal-scorer with one of the heaviest shots in his age group. This spring, he was the 17th overall pick in the USHL Phase II(Futures) draft by the Tri-City Storm.
This is the second time this offseason that the Badgers have gone into Minnesota to pick up a commit from a talented '97 born player, after they already picked up a commitment from one of the best forwards in the state for his age group in Brock Boeser this past May.
