Looking at Wisconsin's offensive line for the class of 2017, the big takeaway is that the Badgers aren't going to have to leave the state to fill up the class with quality prospects. Within an hour of Menomonie tackle Alex Fenton announcing his commitment to the Badgers, Kimberly guard Logan Bruss announced that he would be following suit Monday night.
Bruss is similar to Fenton in that he received an offer from Michigan not long after he received his Junior Day offer from Wisconsin, and he was also on campus for the comeback hoops win over Illinois on Sunday. The big difference? Bruss also received offers from Illinois and Nebraska not soon after, joining other FBS offers from Buffalo and Colorado State.
Looking at Bruss's Hudl tape, you can see the tools that elicited those offers. He has feet that never stop moving until the whistle blows and the strength to put defenders on skates even though his frame is not day-one-ready for Big Ten play at 6'4, 260 pounds. There is still some rawness to his game, but you can see why offensive line coaches would be more than happy to offer.
This is the fourth commitment for the Badgers in 2017, as Bruss joins Fenton as well as Kayden Lyles on the offensive line. This is also the third commitment of the four Junior Day offers the Badgers made on Jan. 23. Amazingly, with a shade over 49 weeks to go until National Signing Day, the Badgers' offensive line board is likely down to two prospects: four-star tackle Micah Clark from Holmdel, N.J., and the last of the Michigan offers to Wisconsin linemen in Port Washington, Wis., tackle Tyler Beach.
I am extremely proud to say that I have committed to the University of Wisconsin! Can't wait to be a Badger! pic.twitter.com/2qgy1h1Zig— Logan Bruss (@LoganBruss) February 23, 2016
