Recruiting is the lifeblood of any major college athletics team, but following it closely as a fan can sometimes be difficult and can often be time consuming. We’ll try and condense all the recruiting news you can use into this bi-weekly (or more often since we are in Uncertain Times and there aren’t actual sports going on) post. It’ll include updates on current commits, including stats from their high school games, as well as news on players the Badgers are still pursuing. Let’s get down to business!
- The Wisconsin Badgers have offered a scholarship to 2023 RB Treyaun Webb (Jacksonville, Fla.) out of Trinity Christian Academy according to Webb’s Twitter account. Webb is already verbally committed to play at Georgia (committed in Nov. 2019) but that hasn’t stopped tons of other schools from continuing to offer him scholarships. Basically any school you’ve ever thought would offer a top running back have done so. He has 35 offers including Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Southern Cal, Auburn, Florida, Miami (Fla.), Oregon, Penn State, Texas, Tennessee and a host of others.
The 6-foot and 188 pound tailback has been playing varsity football since eighth grade and shows incredible vision, speed and awareness for such a young player. There is very clearly a reason while all of these blue blood teams offered him as a freshman.
Jacksonville.com notes: “Webb broke out as an eighth-grader with 306 rushing yards and four touchdowns, including a 94-yard highlight-reel effort against Bolles. He ranked fourth in the state that year in rushing yardage among 2023 prospects, and did much of his damage against high-level opponents like Bolles and Columbia.”
I don’t know where the Badgers would stand with Webb given the quantity and quality of offers he already has and, well, the fact that he’s already committed to a school. However, there is a lot of time left before his actual signing day and Wisconsin has, historically, churned out running backs to the NFL.
