Patrick Baldwin Jr., one of the nation’s top recruits, announced Wednesday that he will stay in his home state and play for his father at Milwaukee.

The 6-foot-9 small forward is the son of Milwaukee coach Patrick Baldwin Sr., who was a three-time captain at Northwestern in the early 1990s. The Wildcats were on Baldwin Jr.’s list, but he ultimately chose Milwaukee over Duke and Georgetown.

He is the No. 4 prospect in the nation, according to 247Sports.com’s composite rankings, making the Sussex (Wis.) Hamilton product the highest-rated recruit in the history of the Milwaukee program.

Baldwin was a ball boy for Northwestern’s basketball teams when his dad was an assistant coach from 2013-17. His mom, Shawn, played volleyball at Northwestern.

Baldwin Sr. is 47-70 in four seasons at Milwaukee. The Panthers went 10-12 overall and 7-10 in the Horizon League last season, finishing in eighth place in the 12-team conference. Baldwin Jr. could help the Panthers rise in the ranks.

Baldwin Sr. also was an assistant coach at Loyola Chicago from 2004-11.
