The Wisconsin Badgers’ seventh commit of the class of 2017, wide receiver Cade Green from Texas powerhouse Lake Travis is moving up north for his college career. Green is one of two wide receiver commits in the class of 2017 [Ed. note: for now], along with DeSoto, Texas, recruit Emmet Perry.

Green had a unique path to Madison, having committed to play lacrosse at Air Force before deciding to pursue football instead. The 6’0 receiver had a relatively quick recruiting process as he committed two weeks after his March 17 official offer.

Green is an under-the-radar prospect who has a chance to be an impact player for the Badgers in the coming years. He has had tremendous success against highly competitive high-school competition, a good sign for Paul Chryst and the coaching staff. B5Q’s Andrew Rosin wrote of Green’s accomplishment at Lake Travis back in March when he committed:

“For one thing, he was super productive in one of the highest divisions of Texas football, putting up a line of 72 receptions, 1,172 yards and 14 touchdowns for a team that made it to the 6A Division Two championship game.”

This past fall, Green and Lake Travis took home the 6A Division I state title, a game in which the future Badger caught a nine-yard touchdown on the opening drive. Green chose Wisconsin over offers from Illinois, New Mexico, Bowling Green and North Texas.
