The Minnesota State Moorhead commit has had a very impressive prep career. He eclipsed the 2000 point mark earlier this season in style:

Hanson has also been getting attention from news outlets throughout the state this season. Jody Norstead, one of the most respected voices in North Dakota sports, recently featured Hanson in his “Dunk City” segment:

The multi-sport standout had an impressive season last year as well. He was tabbed to the All-State team last season.

Hanson was also one of two unanimous All-Tournament team selections at last year’s North Dakota Class B State Tournament.

Wyatt also excels in the classroom and I am fully expect to see him listed as a finalist for Mr. Basketball (released next week).
