Ethan Wragge Talks About His Recruitment

Ethan Wragge, a 6-foot-6 senior forward from Eden Prairie who saw his stock rise after his strong showing in Orlando at the AAU nationals, attended the Minnesota-Northern Illinois game this past Saturday night. Wragge, who is one of Minnesota's top shooters, has gotten interest from several teams, including Minnesota. GoldenSports.Net caught up with Wragge to learn about his recruitment.

Wragge averaged 16.0 points per game as he helped lead the Eagles to a 19-9 record last season. He scored in double figures in 22 of 28 games and had eight games of 20 or more points, including a season-high 27 points in their season-ending loss to Bloomington Kennedy in the Section II second-round playoffs.

Wragge led his Eden Prairie team to the title of the Gopher State Prep Showcase with an overtime win over Lakeville North in July.

Wragge recently made an unofficial visit to Marquette, who recently offered him a scholarship.

"I liked Marquette a lot. They are coming down the third week of September for an open gym to see me. I am going to Creighton this coming weekend," Wragge said.

Wragge said that he has narrowed his list to schools to five.

"The only schools that I am talking to now are Penn State, Michigan, Marquette, Minnesota and Creighton," he said.

Wragge said that he has set other visits besides Creighton this weekend.

"I am going to take an official to Penn State September 27th. I'll probably go to Marquette pretty soon," he said. "Those are the only ones I have planned right now."

Eden Prairie lost two-sports stars Ryan Grant (who signed with Minnesota in football) and Carter Bykowski (football for Iowa State) to graduation. However, they return Wragge and junior forward Brett Ervin, among others.

"I think that we should win our section this year. Anything less than that would be a disappointment. I think that we are good enough to win our section. It just depends on how well we play.
