Gault Now Convinced

He had been slightly wavering since the massive coaching upheaval three months ago but Monona Grove (Wis.) offensive lineman Jaden Gault is now 100 percent committed to Wisconsin following his unofficial visit Sunday, and he thinks others are going to join him.

MADISON - Wisconsin had a big weekend for football visitors with the top talent around the state coming in to get a tour of the program. They came to be known as the "Super Six" and one member of that group is Monona Grove (Wis.) junior offensive tackle Jaden Gault.

Gault has stayed committed throughout the turmoil happening in the Wisconsin program a few months ago and talks about how this visit made his commitment that much stronger.

"It went really well," Gault told Badger Nation. "We all got there around 10 a.m. and met in the player lounge, so we got to see what the facilities would look when they were finished. We headed over to watch some of the basketball game and went upstairs to have lunch at halftime. Coach Gary Andersen and me got to met and talk for some good time, and got to eat lunch with offensive line coach T.J. Woods. I also got to meet offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig.

"It was nice and hope we can make this the best class ever at Wisconsin."

The 6-7, 320-pound Gault usually sticks out with his size and athleticism, but felt right at home with the other in-state players, especially Sun Prairie (Wis.) defensive tackle Craig Evans.

"I think Craig really enjoyed it," said Gault. "Last year, we played on each other's summer basketball team and I got to hook up with him a little bit. I think all the guys had a really great time. Just being able to see the direction the program is heading and the satisfactory of meeting the coaches was huge. I got the same vibe from the other guys."

With Evans de-committing from Wisconsin in late December, Gault talks about how the Badgers sit with him in his opinion.

"I think there is a really good chance that he joins us again," he said. "I just feel there is a very good chance he join us, but I know he gotten offers Ole Miss, which is his home state. It is his decision and I am not going to pressure him in anything. The message today was how Wisconsin is trying to get that core group and trying to get us all on board to help recruiting for the 2014 class and making it the best."

While the "Super Six" consists of all Wisconsin recruits, another highly-rated prospect has expressed interest in Wisconsin, possibly making the "Super Six" a "Super Seven."

"I know (Hinsdale (Ill.) Central lineman) Brian Allen pretty well," said Gault. "Him and me were able to sit next to each other for the last two home games. We kind of started talking and built a good relationship. I think he will be visiting in March and I told him Wisconsin is a great place. He seems very interested right now. I really do plan on talking to him more and hope he becomes part of this class."

Not only has Gault been solid with his commitment, he has still been receiving offers from multiple schools, including Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma. Gault also has been getting new interest from Oregon.

Sunday, however, sealed the deal for Gault, as got solid feedback from the coaching staff and feels comfortable there.

"I'm solid," said Gault, "and feeling really, really good."
