Jamerson Close to Picking Wisconsin

Taking an official visit to Wisconsin less than three weeks after picking up a Badgers offer, Ocala (FL) Vanguard senior wide receiver Natrell Jamerson says he could be close to committing.

There were a ton of points put up from Wisconsin's offense on Saturday - 51 points to be exact – that left Ocala (FL) Vanguard senior wide receiver Natrell Jamerson very impressed during his official visit.

"The visit went really good," Jamerson told BadgerNation. "Going down to Wisconsin was really cool. The weather wasn't that bad because it wasn't (as) cold (as) I thought it was going to be. I thought it was going to be in the 30's, but it was in the 50's. The game was my favorite part of the trip. I got a taste of the game day atmosphere and see how the crowd is, which I liked what I saw.

"I think their offense is really good. They had to run the ball because of the rain, so they didn't throw the ball that much. Still, they can throw it."

During his time on campus, Jamerson talked to wide receiver coach Chris Beatty and found out that the Badgers coaching staff is planning on utilizing him more than just a receiver.

"I talked to Coach Beatty on my visit," said Jamerson. "I talked to a lot of coaches there. Coach Beatty told me that they need me at wide receiver there and will throw the ball. He said I could do also catch punts and do kickoff returns. I like him and we are cool."

Jamerson received his Badgers offer in late October after the Wisconsin coaching staff saw him have a breakout year.

"I did really good this season," said Jamerson. "I broke the receiving record at my school. I don't know my stats, but I know I came to play. I will take some more visits, but I haven't set up the dates to any more visits."

Holding offers from Florida International, Middle Tennessee, Old Dominion, Weber State and UAB, the 6-0, 175-poung Jamerson had Wisconsin as his top school coming into the visit, and feels only stronger about that stance after leaving.

"Wisconsin is my top school right now," he said. "I didn't think about committing during the visit, but back at home when I talk to my mom and my coaches about the trip. I am looking forward to being a Badger real soon."

At the same time Jamerson was offered, Wisconsin offered his teammate, tight end Kano Dillon, who Jamerson plans to start talking to about his weekend experience.

"I think that would be terrific to play with Kano at the next level. I think he would have loved it if he came to Wisconsin on a visit. I wouldn't mind playing with him at Wisconsin."
