In not entirely unexpected but still not enjoyable news, high-four-star offensive tackle from Hartland (Arrowhead), Wis., Ben Bredeson verbally committed to Michigan on Wednesday. Bredeson, widely considered the top prospect from Wisconsin in the class of 2016, becomes the Wolverines' third offensive line commit in their class of 2016.
As for the Badgers? Green Bay (Bay Port), Wis., four-star offensive lineman Cole Van Lanen moves into position as their top target. Look for the Badgers to also make a move with four-star Baltimore (Gilman), Md., tackle Devery Hamilton. The Badgers have been in contention for Hamilton for a while, and with space in Michigan closing quickly, there's a chance to make a new impression.
