Huskers Receive Commitment from 2021 Forward Wilhelm Briedenbach

October 01, 2020

<p>Fred Hoiberg got some good news on Thursday when 2021 Mater Dei (California) big man Wilhelm Breidenbach announced his commitment to Nebraska on his Instagram page.</p>


<p>Breidenbach is a 6-foot-9, 210-pound forward/center from Santa Ana, California. He&rsquo;s Hoiberg&rsquo;s first high school commit for the 2021 class, joining junior college guard Keisei Tominaga who has been committed since last Thanksgiving.</p>

<p>Breidenbach is ranked 53rd in the 2021 class by ESPN, 133rd by Rivals and 146th by 247Sports. He&rsquo;s 92nd overall in the 247Sports Composite with a 0.9572 ranking, making him the second-highest-rated commit to Nebraska during the 247Sports era behind only Glynn Watson Jr. in 2015 (76th, 0.9692).</p>

<p>Breidenbach&rsquo;s ability to handle the ball and shoot from the perimeter as well as finish inside make him a great fit for Fred Hoiberg&rsquo;s pace-and-space style of play.</p>


<p>Nebraska offered Breidenbach in June of 2019 and he was one of a handful of players who visited the weekend of Sept. 27 when Nebraska hosted College Game Day for the Huskers&rsquo; football game against Ohio State. He chose Nebraska over offers from California, USC and Vanderbilt.</p>

<p>With Breidenbach&rsquo;s commitment, Nebraska is full on scholarships for 2021-22 barring any attrition from the current team.</p>
