Wisconsin already boasts four projected linemen as verbal commits in its 2020 class—three of which already hail from the Badger State. It appears the coaching staff has extended another opportunity to an in-state big man.
On Friday night, Kewaunee, Wis., offensive lineman Tanor Bortolini announced he received an offer from Wisconsin.
Based on Bortolini’s conversation with BadgerBlitz.com’s Jon McNamara, Wisconsin foresees him on the inside of the offensive line as a center or guard.
Rated a three-star recruit by 247Sports, a two-star by Rivals, the latter recruiting service reports 20 offers for Bortolini.
