2018 DL Bryson Williams reaffirms verbal commitment to Wisconsin

New, comments

Big news for the Badgers.

The Wisconsin Badgers’ class of 2018 appeared to be set in stone for the past couple of months, but Nebraska’s hiring of Scott Frost led to a potential situation of unease with one commit living in the Husker State.

Now the picture is crystal clear, as Lincoln, Neb., defensive lineman Bryson Williams reaffirmed his intention to honor his verbal commitment to Wisconsin via Twitter on Thursday night.

Frost and the Nebraska coaching staff recently offered Williams, a three-star defensive lineman, after the former Husker quarterback took over the program. There was a push for the recruit who initially was not offered by Mike Riley and his staff.

Williams just took his official visit to Wisconsin this past weekend, taking in Madison with many of his future teammates.

A round of in-house visits began thereafter, as Nebraska first made a stop, with Wisconsin head coach accompanying defensive line coach Inoke Breckterfield to visit Williams earlier this week.

Keeping Williams in this class is significant with three key seniors at defensive end exhausting their eligibility and nose guard Olive Sagapolu becoming a senior next season. Garrett Rand has been the No. 2 nose guard during the season.

Williams originally committed to Wisconsin in July.
