He got his answer with a loud statement.
"Amazing!" Knevel exclaimed to Badger Nation about Wisconsin's home game against Ohio State. "Everybody was really nice, loved the Badgers and every aspect of the Badgers, not just football. The game was just ecstatic. The student section was crazy and built up the whole crowd.
"My weekend was really good. It was good to get back there. It was like a regular official. I got time to talk to the coaches and the players, get a feel for the campus life and had a really good time."
Knevel – a 6-8, 295-pound three-star OL that is rated No.95 in the country at his position by Scout.com – got the Wisconsin information from all angles.
"I got a lot of information from both of them," said Knevel. "They told me everything I need to know, so it was good."
Getting the coaching perspective, Knevel continued his relationship with offensive line coach Bart Miller. Although originally recruited by former offensive line coach Mark Markuson, Knevel and Miller worked together during the summer at UW's camp.
"It was good talking with him," said Knevel of Miller. "We've built a good relationship. It was nice because I really like the guy."
Knevel also got to speak to head coach Bret Bielema before flying out of town Sunday.
"He talked to me about Wisconsin could offer and how much he would like it if I would join the program." said Knevel. "It was a regular spiel. We had a good time. It was really nice."
