Tuesday was a bad day in regard to Wisconsin's recruiting class with Joe Keels leaving for Nebraska. But like sands through the hourglass and sunrise becoming sunset, a new commit steps in to claim the scholarship gained. Serge Trezy? He's definitely coming with intrigue.
Last night, the Orlando native and three-star junior college athlete made himself a part of the Badgers' upcoming class. He brings an electric 40-yard dash time with him. It's 4.29 seconds, in fact. You can have doubts about the veracity of that number, but even if it's slightly inflated, the Eastern Arizona College product comes with good size (listed at 6'2", 195 pounds) and legitimate speed.
He's a bit of a raw talent, as he spent two junior college years at running back and will be flipping over to the defensive secondary. But if he shows good instincts, there are definite openings for him to play right away next year. And at the very least, the question of who's going to return all the kicks has been answered,
The Badgers beat out Cincinnati and Utah for Trezy's services, and he also received offers from Arizona, Baylor and Oregon.
Per the Orlando Sentinel, Trezy likely won't be able to enroll at Wisconsin until the 2014 summer session. He is, however, holding out "slim hope" of graduating from Eastern Arizona in January.
