DE 6'6 280 Columbus, OH (Harvest Preparatory School) Three-star, No. 30 SDE

Isaiah Mullens is set to join Boyd Dietzen at the defensive end position in Madison. Mullens marked a 5.3 second 40-yard dash and a 29.3” vertical jump, despite his large size. The defensive lineman out of Ohio adds the ability to disengage a blocker in the run game to his set of “uncoachable” traits, making him the perfect addition to the depth chart at Wisconsin.

Although Mullens had offers from 14 programs, Wisconsin is the only school he made an official visit to on Dec. 9, the same weekend as many of UW’s verbal commitments traveled to Madison.. Mullens named the Badgers the leader in his decision-making process back in early April. According to 247Sports, assistants Joe Rudolph and Inoke Breckterfield were the lead recruiters for the Ohio defensive end.

Mullens held offers from Indiana, Iowa, Rutgers, Purdue and Louisville, among other schools.
