Denman Makes the Switch

After taking an unofficial visit to Wisconsin this weekend, four-star offensive lineman J.J. Denman breaks the news to and Badger Nation that he has switched his commitment from Penn State to the Badgers.

MADISON - Wisconsin's big victory over Indiana just got a little bigger.

J.J. Denman, a 6-foot-6, 310-pound four-star offensive tackle from Pennsbury High School in Fairless Hills, Pa., has switched his verbal commitment from Penn State to Wisconsin after taking an unofficial visit to the school this weekend.

"Yeah, I (committed)," Denman said via text message.

Denman is the fourth offensive lineman to commit to Wisconsin's 2012 recruiting class and his trip to Madison was the second after visiting in the spring.

"I liked it a lot," Denman told after the first visit. "Their style of offense is great and Madison is a great town. The strength coach was a really good guy and if I go there they said I have a good chance of playing early.

"I looked up the list of players at Wisconsin and all of their linemen are huge guys and I definitely think I'd fit in there with that power philosophy."

Denman was a cornerstone of the Nittany Lions' offensive line class after he committed to Penn State in May, although he was favoring the Badgers, allowing with Michigan and Notre Dame, before making his decision.

Wisconsin now has 11 verbal commitments in the 2012 recruiting class.
