Wisconsin football recruiting: WR Brandyn Lee commits to Badgers

Student Sports

Brandyn Lee, a wide receiver from California, became the third recruit to commit to Wisconsin on Sunday.

This weekend's camps in Madison were expected to be busy for Wisconsin, and they have indeed delivered. West Hills (Chaminade), California, wide receiver Brandyn Lee committed to the Badgers on Sunday, becoming the third commit of the day and the fourth since Thursday.

Lee is a 6'0, 172-pound receiver who's a bit of a sleeper, as he remains unranked by most scouting services. He sported three other offers from Fresno State, Nevada and Washington State, but was widely considered a candidate to commit once he decided to visit Madison this weekend. Lee had reportedly been seeking a Duke offer, though that never came.

Defensive line coach Chad Kauha'aha'a worked his West Coast connections to bring in Lee, while wide receivers coach Chris Beatty gets the assist.

Landing skilled athletes at wide receiver is always a central priority for the Badgers, who just lost star wideout Jared Abbrederis to graduation after struggling to find a consistent complement to him for the past four seasons. The Badgers did receive a soft verbal commit from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, wide receiver Andrew James in March, though things have been quiet at the position ever since. Both Lee and James are fast; the former's been clocked around 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash, and some reports have James with a time in the 4.3-second range. Regardless, it's safe to say the Badgers have done well in landing a pair of skilled receivers so early in the 2015 cycle.

Wisconsin's run of commits began Thursday with Bradenton, Florida, linebacker Nick Thomas and continued with DeSoto, Texas, linebacker Chris Orr on Saturday. Sunday, the day began with a commitment from Barnegat, New Jersey, offensive tackle Sam Madden and Saint Louis defensive end/linebacker Nate Howard before Lee. The Badgers now have 13 commits for 2015; that class ranks fourth in the Big Ten and 25th in the country, according to 247Composite.
