CHICAGO, Ill. - If Nebraska's series with Wisconsin in the Big Ten West wasn't a rivalry, it is now.
On Thursday, speaking at Big Ten Media Days, Wisconsin running back Corey Clement was asked by 93.7 The Ticket about his recruitment back in high school.
Clement took an official visit to Nebraska early into his senior year, but decided to eventually sign with the Badgers, the same year Wisconsin outscored the Huskers 70-31 in the Big Ten Championship game.
"It's like, you've got an iPhone. Then you got a flip phone. You see all these great features the iPhone can do, and then you look at the flip phone, which phone are you going to go with? I'm going with the iPhone,” said Clement in 93.7 The Ticket’s John Gaskins presence. “That's how I compare Wisconsin to Nebraska. Nebraska is a flip phone (laughs with reporters), and Wisconsin is an iPhone.
“So, I mean, I'm like, mom, I want to go the Apple store. I don't want to go to the Sprint store. So, who wouldn't want to go with what is best at that moment?"
It’s worth noting Clement actually committed in early November to Wisconsin, well before the bad showing by Nebraska.
