This is an inside linebacker-centric episode of Bucky’s 5th Podcast, with two new Badgers set to join Wisconsin in 2019.

Here’s the breakdown:

[0:00-15:16] One of the later verbal commits of this 2019 class, Maema Njongmeta jumped on the offer from UW and became one of the 19 signees for this recruiting cycle. He talks about his journey to becoming a Badger, what happens during an official visit, his style of play and what’s ahead for him.

[15:17-End of Show] Early enrollee Leo Chenal was the first verbal commitment for the 2019 class, and this week he made his decision official when signing with Wisconsin. He tells us his max outs in the weight room (impressive!), why he committed so early in 2017 and the factors that came into play with enrolling mid-year in January. Plus, we discuss the relationship with his brother, UW fullback John Chenal.
