Jaden Gault joins five other offensive linemen in Wisconsin's 2014 class as offensive line coach T.J. Woods molds this large class. Gault led the Silver Eagles to a state championship in WIAA Division 3 in 2013, and with the early enrollment, positions himself nicely to contribute not necessarily next year with a veteran set of linemen in the starting five, but for the 2015 season.


Rivals: (No. 28 OT; No. 2 overall player in WI)

Scout: (No. 9 OT)

ESPN: 86 (No. 10 OT; No. 1 overall player in WI; No. 141 in ESPN 300)

247: 97 (No. 4 OT; No. 1 overall player in WI)

Verbally committed on Aug. 18, 2012, currently enrolled at Wisconsin

Gault committed to Wisconsin before the 2012 season. Cornerbacks coach Ben Strickland and offensive line coach T.J. Woods (the latter per 247 Sports) recruited the ESPN 300 athlete.  He stayed committed to Wisconsin even though programs like Miami and Oregon, along with Nebraska, Arkansas and Michigan State, offered.

The highly-regarded tackle enrolled at Wisconsin for the 2014 spring semester, along with quarterback D.J. Gillins, safety Austin Hudson, and guard Michael Deiter.
