Wisconsin football recruiting: 2018 QB Nate Carter commits to Badgers as preferred walk-on

Another in-state kid follows in the storied tradition.

Waunakee, Wis., quarterback Nate Carter verbally committed to the Wisconsin Badgers as a preferred walk-on for the class of 2018 on Tuesday night. The in-state standout announced his decision via Twitter.

According to, Carter completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 2,240 yards and 25 touchdown passes to only six interceptions during the 2017 season. He helped lead Waunakee to a 14–0 record and a WIAA Division 2 state championship this year, the latter of which was played at Camp Randall Stadium in November.

Rated a two-star recruit by 247Sports, Carter’s Hudl profile lists him at 6’5, 200 pounds.

Carter’s commitment gives Wisconsin six known preferred walk-ons for the class of 2018, joining the likes of linebacker Marty Strey, fullback/linebacker John Chenal, offensive lineman Andrew Lyons, Illinois product Jack Eschenbach, and running back Brady Schipper. Strey (Sun Prairie), Schipper (Stoughton), and Carter (Waunakee) are walk-ons who live close to the Madison area.
