As we noted a few days ago, the Wisconsin Badgers were set to host several 2019 recruits on official visits this past weekend, and from the looks of it, the experience delivered for those in attendance.
For sure, we knew some 2019 commits—quarterback Graham Mertz, tight end Hayden Rucci, athlete Marcus Graham, defensive lineman Keeanu Benton and offensive linemen Logan Brown and Joe Tippmann—would be in Madison.
The reported list also included outside linebacker target Spencer Lytle, but there apparently was one more Badger target who found his way to UW. The crew appeared to enjoy their time together in Madison. B5Q highlighted Lytle’s stay on Monday, but here are some more tweets from the visits.
If you noticed in the tweets displayed this weekend, one particular non-committed player was in town. That would be four-star offensive lineman Bryce Benhart from Lakeville, Minn., who according to 247Sports composite rankings is the No. 227 player and No. 24 offensive tackle in the nation.
For those with Rivals/BadgerBlitz.com’ subscriptions (and I recommend both Rivals and 247Sports), Jon McNamara first reported this on Friday ($), with 247Sports now noting in its profile of Benhart that he officially visited as well. B5Q also confirmed with one player on Sunday that the Minnesota native was there. McNamara has a brief article up about the visit ($).
Be on the lookout for more articles about official visit reactions from Wisconsin commits here on B5Q throughout the week.
Specialists go camping, too
Along with Wisconsin’s second recruiting camp for all positions on Friday, Sunday was dedicated to the first of two specialists camps for Wisconsin. Based on their tweets, here is a sampling of who was in attendance in Madison:
