Pfaff Returns to Wisconsin

One of a handful of in-state junior visitors on campus Saturday, Mequon (WI) Homestead defensive end David Pfaff gets more impressed with Wisconsin after every trip he makes.

Wisconsin had many unofficial visitors in the house for their season finale at Madison and Mequon (WI) Homestead junior defensive end David Pfaff was one of them.

"It was awesome," Pfaff told BadgerNation of his unofficial visit. "Even though they lost it was still a good trip. Each time I go there it gets better and better. This (was) my second Badger game I have ever gone to, but it feels like a place I belong. I love the atmosphere. Wisconsin is such a crazy place to be. The fans are amazing, the coaches are fantastic and genuine, and I would really like to play there to make a difference and not be a bench warmer."

"I basically got a tour of their new facility, mainly the new academic success center for athletes. I got to talk briefly to some of their coaches and former players. Most of them I knew from the camp. They are very friendly and helpful."

The 6-1, 230-pound defensive end is hearing from Illinois, Missouri, Michigan State, Northern Illinois, Western Illinois and a couple others early in his recruitment. He also knows Wisconsin is interested after getting some dialogue going with the Wisconsin coaching staff.

"I did talk to some of the coaches, but not for long," said Pfaff. "That was because they were busy with the game and I wasn't early enough to get to talk to them during registration. Coach Chad the defensive line coach and I spoke a little bit and I said hi to Coach Strickland. I did talk to Kite Afeaki, a coach I met at the camp this year. He said that the coaches were excited to have me here."

With his visit to Wisconsin all done, Pfaff currently has no more visits scheduled.

"Recruiting is a long process and I might not hit many more schools anymore this year, but next year I will really start to narrow it down and start to visit," he said. "If I get anymore invites, then I will definitely go to them though. I think that many of the coaches are finding out about me and are getting interested in what I can do as an athlete. I'm excited to get to know a lot of the schools that show interest."
