Coconut Creek (FL) Monarch senior cornerback Ronnie Hoggins has 14 offers to date but with him wanting to commit before the start of his season, he has narrowed it down to a top three of Louisville, TCU and Wisconsin. He talks about each school in his top three and why they made the cut.
Louisville: "Just the tempo they play with, which is fast. (Wide receiver) Coach Lamar Thomas and (cornerbacks) Coach Terrell Buckley are coaches I have a good relationship with and we connect well."
TCU: "I like them because of their defensive scheme. The way they play defense and that zone is menacing. I think I would fit well in their defense. Me and (Co-Offensive Coordinator/Inside Wide Receivers) Coach Doug Meacham are real good together."
Wisconsin: "The program itself and the defense they play. It is the Big Ten and they play a lot of man coverage. The whole coaching staff really wants me."
The Badgers identified the 5-10, 170-pound physical corner very early in the process and was his first offer. Wide receiver coach Chris Beatty has been keeping in close contact with him ever since and letting him know they want to him to join the family.
"We have a real good relationship," said Hoggins. "We talk every week and he just tries to keep communication strong. We always joke around and he is always trying to get me to be a Badger every time we get on the phone. He is trying to be that next father figure in my life and just checking on me and trying to get me to come be a Badger."
With a decision coming up soon, Hoggins will look over a few factors when that time comes to ultimately choose the school for him.
"First thing is getting my education," said Hoggins. "Next is being comfortable with the coaches. Last thing is just playing time and that will be a big factor in my decision. I will look through those and compare to the schools and that is how I will choose."
