The Wisconsin Badgers are losing one of their 2024 recruits, as three-star safety Kahmir Prescott de-committed from the program, he announced on Thursday.
Prescott was the eighth of 21 recruits to commit to the Badgers in the 2024 class, as he committed to the program back in late April, forging a relationship with safeties coach Colin Hitschler.
This move is a parting of ways between both sides, as Wisconsin ultimately decided to go in a different direction, per a source, allowing Prescott to find the best fit for him ahead of National Signing Day.
Prior to his commitment, Prescott shared the details behind his interest in Wisconsin, pointing out the relationship with coach Hitschler and the “family” vibe of the culture.
“I’m feeling good about Wisconsin. Conversations with the coaches have been good. [They’re] showing love to me and my family [and] making me feel welcome and making me feel like this is a place I can call home,” Prescott said earlier this year. “They coach kids up the right way. They make you feel welcomed and make you feel at home and like, Wisconsin is a family.”
With the de-commitment, the Badgers will move forward with safety Raphael Dunn, as well as cornerbacks Xavier Lucas, Omillio Agard, and Jay Harper in their 2024 class, which still has 20 commits following the news.
