Camp weekends are always times for schools to bolster their ranks if their starts could be conceived as slow. For the Wisconsin Badgers, their first camp offer turned into a commitment on Monday when Amherst, Wis., defensive end Tyler Biadasz verbally chose UW.
Rivals' Jon McNamara was the first to report the commitment.
Sure, Biadasz is another prospect for whom you could look at the offer sheet and say to yourself, "The Badgers offered someone whose best offers were Missouri Valley Conference schools? That's not great." But the MVC is the SEC of FCS conferences right now. Illinois State also did make the championship last season.
Just verbally committed to.. The Wisconsin Badgers! #blessed— Tyler Biadasz (@TylerBiadasz) June 8, 2015
Updated H/W for Tyler Biadasz is 6-4, 270. Will play DT for #Badgers. Said "dream come true" multiple times when we talked just a minute ago— Jon McNamara (@McNamaraRivals) June 8, 2015
That may still seem flimsy, but you want to know the other thing? Biadasz's Hudl profile is really good. Sure, Amherst is a village of just barely over 1,000 residents at the last census, but if you're looking for a prospect at a school with low enrollment, you want one who dominates.
Biadasz? He had 77 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, five sacks, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries last season.
Biadasz also had offers from South Dakota State, Southern Illinois and Western Illinois. He joins Luke Benzschawel as Wisconsin's current defensive line commitments for 2016, so it seems safe to say the Badgers will look to add at least one more player there before National Signing Day.
