UW coaches are visiting their commits with National Signing Day looming.

It's less than two weeks until National Signing Day, and with the dead period gone, the Wisconsin Badgers coaches are in midst of locking down its class of 2016. Along with offers to Illinois standout running back Sam Brodner and Denver, Colo., sleeper Deron Harrell, head coach Paul Chryst and his band of assistant coaches (minus one defensive coordinator, for now) visited their verbal commits in the past two weeks.

Judging by the photos, Wisconsin brought multiple assistant coaches on these visits, and they've spanned the midwest and eastern regions of the country -- from Kansas to Florida, up to Connecticut and into Georgia. Makes you wonder how many frequent flyer miles they have as a whole (ed. note: possible NSD story?).

One of the newest verbal commits to the class of 2016, the Howard, Kan. (West Elk) prospect received an in-house visit from the majority of the defensive coaching staff last Thursday, including his possible future defensive line coach, Inoke Breckterfield.

Great home visit ⚪ #onwisconsin

While Chryst and the other defensive coaches were in Kansas last Thursday, secondary coach Daronte Jones was down in Florida, following up with the Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (St. Thomas Aquinas) cornerback.

The Badgers' coaches then headed to Flossmoor, Ill. to visit the composite three-star recruit on Friday, who could play either wide receiver or cornerback depending upon the needs of the program.

A.J. Taylor

The Missouri standout, who just participated in the Semper Fedelis All-American Bowl with fellow future teammates Dallas Jeanty and Noah Burks, sat down with Chyrst and wide receivers coach Ted Gilmore.

The three-star tight end and Connecticut native had nearly a handful of coaches at his house on Sunday (sorry, no pictures everyone).

Eric Burrell

Chryst met up with Jones and outside linebackers coach Tibesar out in the mid-Atlatic region earlier this week, visiting the composite high three-star commit on Monday.

Patrick Johnson

Tibesar, Jones and Chryst then took their road trip of about an hour (according to Google maps) from Owings Mills to Potomac, Md., to visit another three-star safety commit in Johnson.

Seth Currens

The three-star safety from Pickerington, Ohio, caught up with offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph on Tuesday.

Anthony Lotti


Chryst and the staff were in Georgia, checking in on talented three-star punter Anthony Lotti. Lotti was a first team All-State selection by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for the second consecutive year.

Quintez Cephus

The popularity of the three-star wide receiver and basketball prospect has heated up since his commitment to Wisconsin back in November. Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and Miami all have offered the multi-sport athlete. On Tuesday, both the Badgers and the Hurricanes where watching Cephus.
