Wisconsin football recruiting: Brown Deer ATH Zack Baun accepts grayshirt offer as Badgers' 20th commit for 2015

New, 11 comments

Brown Deer's quarterback and defensive end has been recruited as an outside linebacker for Wisconsin.

Aside from the 52-7 victory the Wisconsin Badgers earned over the Maryland Terrapins Saturday afternoon, more good news poured in for head coach Gary Andersen -- this time from the recruiting front.

As noted last night, three-star Seffner (Armwood), Fla., inside linebacker Jordan Griffin became the 21st known commit for Wisconsin in the 2015 class, but there was one earlier in the day as well from Brown Deer, Wis., athlete Zack Baun:

The 6'3, 209-pound quarterback has had a big senior season, and per BadgerNation.com's Ben Worgull, he finished with an unofficial 402 yards rushing and six touchdowns last Friday night against Pewaukee. Baun has been recruited as an outside linebacker, and with his frame, can definitely fit the mold of a backer in defensive coordinator Dave Aranda's attacking 3-4 defense.

Baun joins a huge linebacker class for Wisconsin that currently includes Griffin, Mohamed BarryChris OrrDominic Sheppard and Nick Thomas. Congrats poured in for the future Badger on Saturday:
