MADISON - Although he was awarded a scholarship on his visit to Wisconsin for the school's April spring game, Genoa (OH) High offensive lineman Michael Deiter was told he would have to come to one of Wisconsin's high school summer camps to show he was worthy of one.

On the second day of his three-day stint in Madison, Deiter proved he was worthy to carry on Wisconsin's offensive line tradition.

The 6-5, 300-pound Deiter becomes the eight commitment in Wisconsin's 2014 recruiting class and the third offensive lineman, joining Hartland (WI) Arrowhead's George Panos and Monona (WI) Grove's Jaden Gault as players to help build UW's depleted offensive line.

"Wisconsin has always been the dream school for me," Deiter said previously. "I have been a Badgers fan for awhile."

Working with the offensive linemen during Tuesday's one-day camp, the three-star Deiter got plenty of attention from offensive line coach T.J. Woods and graduate assistant Josh Oglesby, who put Deiter through one-on-one drills after the group session had completed. Deiter projects as a guard at Wisconsin and is ranked the No.66 guard in the country by Fox Sports Next.

Deiter chose Wisconsin over other favorites Illinois and Nebraska, as well as offers from Bowling Green, Georgia Tech, Toledo, West Virginia and others.
