Wisconsin football recruiting: ILB Jordan Griffin to reschedule visit

New, comment

The fire at the air traffic control tower in Chicago might put a wrench into just how big this day is for Wisconsin, recruiting-wise.

Griffin is still expected to have Wisconsin as the favorite when he makes his visit.

UPDATE, 9:31 a.m.: Per 247sports' Ryan Bartow, running back Jordan Scarlett (4* Ft. Lauderdale (St. Thomas Aquinas), Fla), cornerback Rashard Causey (3* St. Thomas Aquinas) and wide receiver Shaquery Wilson (3* Miami (Coral Gables Senior), Fla.) are all in Chicago and will make it to Madison for their official visits this weekend, leaving Griffin as the lone holdout.

UPDATE, 9:10 a.m.: Running back Bradrick Shaw (3*, Birmingham (Hoover), Ala). is officially on campus. Per 247sports' Evan Flood, running back Jordan Stevenson (4*, Dallas (South Oak Cliff), Texas) is on his way, and Griffin's officially rescheduled his visit for the Illinois game on Oct. 11.

Between the Kansas City Royals making the playoffs and all the political talk people will yell at me to stick to sports about, there was news out of Chicago on Friday of a man setting a fire at an air traffic control tower at O'Hare International Airport. It cancelled over 2,000 flights out of Chicago alone, and caused a ripple effect throughout the nation in terms of air travel.

This is where, with no good segue, the tangential connection to Wisconsin football comes into play. Seffner, Florida three-star inside linebacker Jordan Griffin was left unable to find a flight to make it up to the game this weekend.

Ultimately, this may throw into question just how many official visitors the Badgers will be able to land this week. Four-star running back Jordan Scarlett and three-star cornerback Rashard Causey are both planning on coming up from Fort Lauderdale, and three-star wide receiver Shaquery Wilson would be coming up from Coral Gables.

As it stands, the next weekend Griffin would be able to make a visit to Madison would be the Illinois game the weekend of October 11.
