OT Kaleb McGary commits to Washington

Student Sports

The four-star Tacoma, Wash., offensive tackle has decided to stay in-state.

Kaleb McGary has decided that he will remain in Washington and committed to the Washington Huskies. This news isn't unexpected, but when you consider the timing of this, it throws some salt into Wisconsin's 2014 recruiting class.

The Badgers definitely made a hard charge and came on late in the race to get his services. After all, they were able to get in on a prospect that, when the Badgers made their initial press, had a final-three that was highly regional (Oregon State and Washington State, plus Washington). As such, on effort alone the Badgers did very well. Chris Petersen just had a little bit too much of an advantage. From 247 Sports:

"It seemed like it was the best fit for me -- Wisconsin was great and had that college town feel but it was just too far way -- WSU had a college town feel but it wasn't surrounded by mountains, so in the end Washington was the clear choice."

Another thing that turned out to be a deal-breaker for McGary was that he wanted to major in some sort of animal husbandry or wildlife career, "UW had the wildlife conservation", he said.

This will end the Badgers' recruitment of offensive linemen, but the cupboard is far from bare in this class. George Panos and Jaden Gault are both four-star talents, and Michael Dieter is already in Madison as the front of a six-person position class.
