On an unofficial visit to the campus over the weekend, Milwaukee Marquette defensive end Conor Sheehy was impressed enough was the facilities and the program to commit to Wisconsin's 2014 recruiting class, ending his recruitment before it even got started.
Milwaukee Marquette high school coach Jeffrey Mazurczak confirmed the commitment.
Sheehy represents the fourth verbal commitment in Wisconsin's 2014 signing class, which includes in-state offensive linemen Jaden Gault (Monona) and George Panos (Hartland) and Sturgis (Mich.) quarterback Chance Stewart.
"He's got a terrific work ethic," Mazurczak told Fox Sports' Allen Trieu of Sheehy. "That's what got him to where he is. He'll live in the weight room. He loves to continue to improve. We saw that as a young freshman. We heard from our freshman staff that he was a hard worker. He was probably 225-230 then, and throughout his sophomore year, he continued to just get bigger. In the off-season, after that year on the field for us, he was involved in power lifting, which was huge."
We'll have more, including an interview with Sheehy, later
