Hill, Schlundt decide to redshirt for Badgers

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -  A pair of Badgers guards have elected to redshirt this season. Sophomore Jordan Hill and freshman T.J. Schlundt will practice with the team this season but will not play in  games.

Hill appeared in 11 games as a freshman. He scored seven points in 25 minutes of action.

“I feel like the best decision for my future is to gain this extra year,” Hill said. “As a competitor, it's hard for me to come to this decision, but I think it's the mature move. The best thing I can do now is to go at my teammates as hard as possible in practice and use this year to get better in every phase of the game.”

Schlundt is a walk-on from Oconomowoc. He knew before arriving on campus that he would be hard-pressed to get minutes on this extremely talented squad.

“Obviously this year we have a lot of really talented players and I feel like I need to get bigger, faster and stronger for the years to come,” Schlundt said. “I'm really excited about the future and spending the year learning as much as I can from my coaches and teammates.”
