One of the few basketball prospects in attendance for No.3 Wisconsin's loss to Michigan on Saturday, Ernst's experience wasn't dampened despite the end result on the court.
"My visit to Wisconsin was good and I went up to their game yesterday against Michigan," Ernst told BadgerNation. "I really like the town and the environment for the game was really good. I talked to all the assistants after the game and Coach Close went to my high school game Friday night."
Ernst isn't a stranger to the campus, as he visited and competed in Wisconsin's elite camp in June.
"I like Wisconsin a lot and think it would be a great place to play," he said. "The coaches just said I was improving and to just keep doing what I was doing. I would just love to be a part of Badger
Nation and it would be an honor to play for that program."
"I've already been to Iowa for a couple games and a UNI game," said Ernst. "I also plan to go to a Drake game and another UNI game."
