Tyler Beach was Wisconsin’s sixth commitment for 2017.

Beach is an athletic prospect who will continue to provide depth along the offensive line for Wisconsin. He will be one of at least four offensive linemen in this class, and while he’s entering a position already chock full of athletic kids, he may have the highest upside of all of them.

Beach held offers from Michigan, Notre Dame, Arkansas, Missouri, Syracuse, Vanderbilt, Oregon State, Western Michigan, Northern Illinois, New Mexico, Iowa State, Illinois, Eastern Michigan, Buffalo and Bowling Green.
