In what has been a whirlwind recruitment, class of 2022 3-star TE JT Seagreaves (Monroe) has committed to the Wisconsin Badgers on Monday afternoon. He is the third commit for UW in their 2022 class and is another feather in the cap for an important recruiting weekend.

The 6-foot-5, or 6-foot-6, and 220 pound prospect is unranked by all the major recruiting services but has been receiving a lot of positive buzz while on the summer camp circuit. He visited or camped at UW twice earlier in June and set up an official visit for the weekend of June 17-19. Both Evan Flood at 247 Sports and Jon McNamara at Rivals have put in predictions for Seagreaves to end up a Badger, so it is not surprising that Seagreaves pulled the trigger and picked Wisconsin.
The tight end recruiting in the 2022 cycle has been filled with twists and turns. Here’s a quick recap from our post when Seagreaves received his offer:
If you’ve been following recruiting closely you’ve probably noticed that there has been some drama surrounding the tight end position in this cycle. For a long time Micah Riley-Drucker (Bellevue, Neb.) was thought to be the favorite to land the one tight end spot in this class, but then he cancelled his official visit as the Badgers seemed to cool on him. Then in-state TE Andrew Keller (Waunakee), who has been a fairly strong Iowa lean, decided that he was going to take an official visit to UW. He worked out in front of Paul Chryst and Mickey Turner with Seagreaves but left without an offer.
All three of the Badgers commits in the 2022 class are from inside the state and if the rumor mill is to be believed, there should be more commitments coming soon.
