High Marks from Figaro

Spending his first weekend in Madison and getting a chance to watch his former high school teammate compete, Everett (MA) cornerback Lubern Figaro recaps a solid official visit to Wisconsin.

MADISON - Everett (MA) senior cornerback Lubern Figaro made his way to Madison to watch Wisconsin face off against Purdue and left very impressed from its 41-10 victory.

"It was my first time at Wisconsin and it was amazing," Figaro told BadgerNation. "I had a great time and the environment out in Madison is something you can't even describe.

"The coaches talked to me some and they talked about how I have a chance to start or maybe even play my first year over there. That is something that I want to work to achieve, so I liked hearing that a lot."

The 6-1, 180-pound three-star recruit – rated the No.49 cornerback in the country by Fox Sports Next - saw many things on his visit, but a moment he remembers vividly and loved was when Wisconsin did its traditionally jump around at the end of the third quarter.

"The Jump Around was something else," Figaro said. "That was a very cool part of the game and I have never seen anything like that. I didn't jump (laughter), but I watched it."

With this visit setting the bar high for his upcoming visits, Figaro talks about his overall take on the entire visit and if the thought of committing ever pop in his mind.

"I would rate the visit an 8 out of 10 because the fan base is great, the coaches treat you good and the other players are very cool dudes, said Figaro. "I did think about committing on the visit, but I want to wait longer and take my other visits. I got Michigan State next and then Syracuse to visit. Overall, it was a great weekend and Badger Nation showed me a great time."
