Wisconsin in Trezy's Top Three

Continuing to target the junior college ranks to help build depth on its roster, Wisconsin and secondary coach Bill Busch extended an offer to Thatcher (AZ) Eastern Arizona College running back Serge Trezy.

Under first year head coach Gary Andersen, Wisconsin has targeted junior college recruits to fill gaps in its roster. It is no secret that the Badgers are looking to build depth and secondary coach Bill Busch sent out an offer during the spring evaluation period to Thatcher (AZ) Eastern Arizona College running back Serge Trezy.

"Coach Busch said they would offer me if I had at least a 2.5 GPA," Trezy told Badger Nation. "I got a 2.8 GPA right now, so they had offered me. I was surprised and shocked by the offer. I always watched Wisconsin and Montee Ball and see how much powerful runs they do, so I thought I would really fit in there. The offensive line is also huge, so that doesn't hurt.

"I was really thinking about Wisconsin because they run the ball about 80 percent of the time and being a running back that is what I am really looking for. Wisconsin is just a really good program and Coach Busch is really nice and real. If Coach Busch is that way, then I am guessing the rest of the staff is the same way."

The 6-1, 210-pound Trezy claims 13 offers, but says his top three are Baylor, Cincinnati and Wisconsin. Originally from Orlando, Trezy will graduate in December and have two years of eligibility remaining. Considering visits to Arizona, Baylor, Cincinnati, Jacksonville State and Wisconsin this summer and fall before making his decision, Trezy is focused on getting his academics in order for college.

"I can't really tell when I am going to commit because I am focusing on my classes," Trezy said. "I am taking some online classes and all I need is 28 more credits. I am trying to take at least three to four classes this summer and finish it off in the fall. My major is criminal justice so when I go to visit Wisconsin and other places, I would like to see how that program stacks up. I also like to see the coaching staffs and academic programs."

This past season was a big change for Trezy, going from playing in traditional power and spread formations in high school to being the fullback for the first three games in the triple option at Eastern Arizona. He not only played running back, but also worked at defensive end and on kickoff return. While Wisconsin is recruiting him as an athlete, Trezy describes his game at the running back spot.

"I play the game (with the mentality that) as soon as the ball touches my hands, I am looking for the open hole," he said. "Once I find it, I hit the speed and if there is anybody in my way, then I will run them over. I got a combination of speed and power."
