Commitment Capsule: Offensive Line

With signing day fast approaching, Badger Nation will examine each position and the impact it will have on the program. In the next part of our series, we look at the offensive line.

Number of Scholarship Players added: 2 (Ray Ball and Tyler Marz)

Number of Scholarship Players lost: 3 (Gabe Carimi, John Moffitt and Bill Nagy)

Recruiting Story: (Ball) Right after signing day, Wisconsin made sure to focus its efforts on Ball, offering the 6-7, 320-pounder a scholarship. Not only was UW one of his first offers, Ball was impressed with his unofficial visit to Madison – commenting on the environment, how welcoming their players are and how it reminded him of a place he could live and feel secure at.

Ball liked it so much that he made another unofficial visit to Madison before the football season and even got a visit from recruiting coordinator Joe Rudolph and offensive line coach Bob Bostad at his high school. That's a big reason UW made his top three with Kentucky and Indiana, with UCLA on the cusp of his favorites.

Wisconsin emerged as the clear favorite after he took his official to the Ohio State game. Digging the Badgers before the trip, even going as far to tell his classmates that UW was going to win, Ball, ranked No.48 among all offensive tackles in the nation by Scout.com, knew UW was his future home and canceled officials to UCLA and Michigan.

(Marz) The 6-foot-8, 280-pound offensive tackle from Springfield (Minn.) High first popped on to Wisconsin's radar during junior camp and continued to be productive on the summer camp circuit, picking up offers from from Minnesota and South Dakota State as well as interest from Iowa. But unlike the other campuses, something just stuck with him the UW campus.

Marz took an unofficial visit to Iowa on September 11 and followed that up with his best visit yet, an unofficial visit to Wisconsin on September 18.

"My choice came down to Minnesota and Wisconsin. Minnesota is such a big season and I come from a small town. With Wisconsin being more type of town, I felt more comfortable in Madison. Madison had a great atmosphere for me."

Scout's Scouting Report: Ball has said often that in football, you want to be the best and you have to persevere to be the best. He described himself as a stingy player and that comes through on film. His size gives him a big advantage at his level and it will be anxious to see how that anger and mentality continues to develop at the next level.

Not much is known on Marz other that he planned on redshirting his first season to up his weight and strength and prepare for the guard position. He's been put in a tough position when he suffered a torn ACL as a result of a cheap shot and has been on the mend ever since. He's tough as nails though, as he played two more games on the knee before the pain became unbearable. Expect to see him develop as a tackle.

Who did the Badgers miss out on: With the tradition at Wisconsin, the Badgers are always going to attack top running backs and offensive linemen. This cycle was no different. Wisconsin went after five-star St. Thomas Aquinas tackle Bobby Hart (Florida State), four-star Keith Lumpkin (Rutgers) and Jordan Walsh (Iowa), three-star Paul Gaughan (Boston College), Zach Sterup (Nebraska), Derek Farniok (Oklahoma) and Chris Boles (Illinois). The Badgers were finalists with all four three-star players.

The Badgers got an official visits from uncommitted prospect Josue Matias for the Indiana game, but the two sides seem to cool on each other after. Wisconsin has also been highly involved with Spencer Region, who was once committed to both Auburn and Alabama. According to Region, four teams remain in the hunt for him: Auburn, Louisville, LSU and Wisconsin.

How the position could change: Region, who participated in the Under Armour All-American game, has been trying to visit Wisconsin for some time. He's shooting for the weekend of January 28. His recruitment has had many twists and turns with de-commits and canceled visits, so it's hard to say where he is leaning. He has said previously that he loves UW's offensive line tradition and the comfort he felt when at Louisville.
