Q&A: 2023 recruit Kadyn Betts on committing to Gophers basketball program

Ben Johnson and the Gophers landed their first 2023 commitment earlier this summer. It’s forward Kadyn Betts from Pueblo, Col.

We caught up with Betts to hear why the Gophers are the right fit and to find out how hard it was to say no to other schools, like Colorado State.

Betts will play for Huntington Prep in West Virginia, the school that produced NBA champion Andrew Wiggins, for his senior season. He wants to get more competition before joining the Big Ten.

Betts was a first-team all-state as a junior, and was a three-year starter at Pueblo Central high school.

This past season, the 6-foot-8 forward led his high school to the Class 4A Final Four, where they were beaten by eventual state champion Lewis-Palmer.
