247Sports has Bredeson ranked as the No. 1 2016 prospect in the state of Wisconsin and the nation’s No. 4 offensive tackle.
Bredeson was once considered to be a Notre Dame lean, but a recent visit to Michigan swung him towards the Wolverines.
Michigan now has three four-star offensive linemen on the 2016 board: Erik Swenson (Downers Grove, Illinois), Michael Onwenu (Detroit, Michigan), and Bredeson.
Bredeson was recruited by Greg Mattion and Tim Drevno.
