Hedstrom received a 4-for-5 offer, which means he'll walk-on next season then go on scholarship starting in the 2019-2020 season.

Hedstrom's final five schools were Wisconsin, Utah, Denver, UNC-Wilmington, and South Dakota.

Hedstrom's Hopkins teammate, junior forward Zeke Nnaji, also holds a Wisconsin offer.
