The second episode dropping this week is another huge 2019 Early Signing Period-centric extravaganza.

Let’s get to the breakdown!

[0:00-27:36]’s Jon McNamara talks all about Wisconsin’s class of 2019 for nearly 30 minutes! Some of the topics we discussed:

  • General overview of the class
  • Biggest recruiting win for Wisconsin
  • Which position group benefited the most with this 2019 recruiting cycle?
  • Which commit was the most surprising in coming to UW?
  • A quick look at the walk-ons
  • Any other potential signees before National Signing Day 2019 in February?

[27:38-42:09] Four-star, Elite 11, Opening Finalist, All-American Bowl QB ... and now Wisconsin signee Graham Mertz popped on the show to answer our questions about his recruiting process and much more. Come for the chat on expectations and why he chose to keep his commitment to the Badgers, stay for the story of the weirdest photo edit he ever received from a program and what he listens to during workouts and pregame!
