It's been a good 10 days for Wisconsin Badgers football recruiting, namely for the future defenses under coordinator Dave Aranda.
Dublin (Coffman), Ohio, inside linebacker Griffin Grady verbally committed to play for Wisconsin on Wednesday, joining linebackers Noah Burks and Dallas Jeanty, plus defensive lineman Tyler Biadasz as Wisconsin's defensive commits since June 8.
Throw in Forest Lake, Minn., offensive lineman Patrick Kasl, who committed over the weekend, and Wisconsin's recruiting class of 2016 has doubled since last week.
BadgerNation.com's Ben Worgull first tweeted out the confirmed commitment Wednesday, with BadgerBlitz.com noting Tuesday in their Badgers' Den forum a commitment was expected by an unknown recruit in the coming day ($) but was confirmed via Jon McNamara's tweet Wednesday evening.
Grady measured in at 6'2, 203 pounds at The Opening Regional combine in Columbus, Ohio, in late May. Ranked as a 247Sports composite three-star recruit and the nation's No. 25 inside linebacker, Grady showcased his abilities with a 4.65-second 40-yard dash, 4.23-second shuttle and a 35.3" vertical jump. He had other offers from Northwestern, Virginia, Maryland and Kentucky.
The Ohio native becomes the 10th-known verbal commit for Wisconsin's class of 2016.
