Fenstermacher Starting to Attract Big Names

Looking for its first cornerback in the 2014 recruiting class, Wisconsin has started to touch base with Phoenix Desert Mountain senior Dominique Fenstermacher, a teammate of one of the Badgers' top targets

Wisconsin is very familiar with Phoenix Desert Mountain High, heavily recruiting their four-star wide receiver Jalen Brown. While the Badgers are relentlessly recruiting Brown, who will take an official visit to Wisconsin on Sept.21, they are also keeping tabs on his teammate in senior cornerback Dominique Fenstermacher.

"My recruitment has been going good," Fenstermacher told BadgerNation. "I've been offered by Arizona, Nebraska, UNLV, Nevada, Wyoming, New Mexico State and Utah State. I've also been hearing a lot from Michigan State, Washington, UCLA, and Utah. I am getting a lot of mail from Wisconsin as well. I have no idea yet on where I will be visiting yet, but me and my uncle will start scheduling in late September."

While the 5-11, 170-pound Fenstermacher – a two-star prospect ranked the No.168 in the country by Fox Sports Next - hasn't been hearing as much as others from Wisconsin, he is still very eager to learn more about them and hopefully land a Badgers offer.

"Wisconsin is just sending me like updates on the program and stuff like that, but no hand written letters or anything yet," said Fenstermacher. "I'd really like to get familiar with the Wisconsin program. If I did get offered from them, then it would be a great blessing because it seems like a great school."

Fenstermacher prides his game on preparing and putting out more effort on the field than the man in front of him, which makes him a very fun player to watch.

"I play the game physical and I put a lot of effort going into the game," said Fenstermacher. "I am always more prepared than the receiver I'm guarding. Most of the time I play off of instincts and I trust my instincts to make plays."

Fenstermacher had a very good junior season, tallying 43 tackles and 6 INTs, playing at Tempe Marcos de Niza.
