Wisconsin football recruiting: Badgers closing in on commitment from S Cycoby Burch

The Badgers seem close to adding the fifth member of their 2016 recruiting class.


Wisconsin's fifth commitment for 2016 announced his intentions Monday night when three-star safety Cycoby Burch from Orlando (Oak Ridge), Fla., decided he was ready to be a Badger.

Burch is a ballhawk, a 6'1, 190-pound, three-star safety. As 247Sports' No. 84 athlete for 2016, he's definitely a worthy addition for the Badgers... but then came reason for Wisconsin fans to pump the breaks when 247's Evan Flood reported that Burch's commit was not quite official.

I know what you're thinking. You've seen tweets of congratulations from commits like Kare' Lyles and Antonio Williams. Why the hesitation on the Badgers' end? Simple. You click the link on the tweet from Flood and you'll see that this is a situation of crossing the academic t's and dotting those i's. As we all know, those #reasons have reared their ugly head in the past two seasons.

This is a situation that should resolve itself quickly, however. When it does, we'll get another quality piece for the class of 2016.
