WISCruiting Weekly: May 8, 2013

US PRESSWIRE

The latest and most important news from the past week of Wisconsin recruiting.

The biggest news from the past week is easily the commitment of JUCO transfer cornerback Tekeim Reynard on May 4. Reynard joins the Badgers' 2013 recruiting class, becoming the third JUCO transfer in his class after the previous commitments of quarterback Tanner McEvoy and safety Donnell Vercher. For more on Reynard, read Mike Fiammetta's article on Wisconsin's late addition to the 2013 class.

Evan Flood of Badger247 foresees Reynard competing with fellow defensive back Sojourn Shelton for the third cornerback position. In terms of what he'll bring to the table, Flood gave some insight in an article on Badger247:

Reynard primarily played safety at Independence Community College, but is expected to transition to cornerback at Wisconsin. Because of that, it's tough to judge exactly what his skill set will be at the next level, but we do know he's hard hitter and loves to come up and lay the wood.

Another attribute that will help Reynard at the next level is his ability to break on a pass in mid air. He reacts very well to the ball in the air. In run support, Reynard does an adequate job of coming up and making tackles. He really excels at shedding his blocks, coming downhill, and making the tackle.
