It appears the Wisconsin Badgers have found a quarterback early on in their recruiting for the class of 2018.
La Grange, Ill. (Lyons Township) prospect Ben Bryant verbally committed to Wisconsin on Wednesday afternoon, confirming his verbal pledge via Twitter.
Bryant is rated a three-star recruit by Scout, 247Sports and Rivals. The 6’3, 190-pound signal caller is the 14th-ranked dual-threat quarterback by Rivals and the 18th pro-style quarterback by 247Sports (19th in its composite rankings).

He received offers from Wisconsin and Central Michigan, and visited Indiana, Cincinnati and Purdue in November. The Illinois native recently received an invitation to the 2017 National Combine at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.
Bryant joins defensive backs Trent Ingalls and Reggie Pearson as early members of Wisconsin’s class of 2018.
It remains to be seen how many quarterbacks head coach Paul Chryst will take in this class, with San Marcos, Calif. (Mission Hills) QB Jack Tuttle and Matawan, N.J. (Old Bridge) QB Artur Sitkowski both reportedly interested in the Badgers.
