OT Jacob Maxwell becomes the Badgers' 22nd commit

The in-state prospect joins with George Panos, Jaden Gault and Michael Dieter along the offensive line.

A little pre-Thanksgiving news hit the recruiting wires as the Badgers were able to get another in-state prospect to flip their commit and come home. This time it's Greenfield offensive tackle Jacob Maxwell who decided he was going to take Wisconsin's offer over Northern Illinois.

Maxwell joins Grafton native (and Syracuse decommit) Beau Benzschawel as in-state linemen who quickly decided to become Badgers after receiving their offers. And Maxwell does have the sort of frame to add weight and play tackle. Though with his recruitment, the question becomes whether Benzschawel stays as a tight end with the way this class has set up -- the Badgers have not been able to otherwise grab a tight end prospect -- and if the Badgers can manage to get Kolton Miller to commit.

Maxwell will be among the visitors in on Saturday for the Penn State game, and it seems like he would have been a certain flip during the visit weekend. But Maxwell was excited to stay in-state. And with the way the Badgers develop linemen? He's got a chance to maintain the tradition.
