In-state kicker/punter Blake Wilcox commits to Wisconsin as walk-on

New, 6 comments

The Badgers receive a commitment from an intriguing kicker.

On Monday, Kettle Moraine, Wis., kicker/punter Blake Wilcox announced on Twitter that he verbally committed to Wisconsin.

Wilcox is rated a five-star kicker and punter by Kohl’s Kicking Camp, being ranked the No. 5 kicker and No. 3 punter in the nation for the class of the 2019. 247Sports composite rankings designate him as a three-star prospect.

In late June, Wilcox tweeted that he received a preferred walk-on opportunity from Wisconsin—this after working at one of UW’s specialists camps. He also mentioned on social media that he was selected to play in the 2019 Under Armor All-American game.

BadgerBlitz.com’s Jon McNamara saw Wilcox in person earlier in the high school season, as the specialist drilled a 51-yard field goal attempt.

Wisconsin now has two commits from the class of 2019 as preferred walk-ons with both Wilcox and long snapper Peter Bowden.
