Fredericksen is a two-star prospect and the 32nd-ranked Class of 2022 recruit in Idaho, according to 247 Sports, which lists MSU and fellow Big Sky program Idaho State as the two schools that have extended offers to him. He is 6-foot-3, 210 pounds and an outside linebacker, per his Hudl page, and his Twitter biography says he also plays defensive end.
Last season, Fredericksen finished with 43 tackles (five for loss), five sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He helped Rigby reach the 5A state title game, where the Trojans lost 17-14 to Rocky Mountain (5A is Idaho's largest classification). Rigby is 7-0 so far this season.
Fredericksen is at least the second Class of 2022 Idaho player to commit to MSU. Timberline running back/wide receiver Taylor Marcum committed in July.
The Bobcats have also received commitments from Billings West twins Caden and Taco Dowler (defensive back and receiver, respectively), Florence's Ethan Abbott (defensive lineman), Red Lodge's Burke Mastel (offensive line) and Bozeman Gallatin's Rylan Schlepp (tight end).
