Great Visit for Deiter

Finishing up his final week of high school, Genoa (OH) offensive lineman Michael Deiter loved his official visit to Wisconsin, especially since there was a hockey game involved.

This weekend official visitor list consisted of 11 Badgers commits for Wisconsin. One of those eleven visitors were Genoa (OH) senior offensive tackle Michael Deiter, who was kept very busy for his whole visit, but loved every second of it.

"The visit went great," Deiter told BadgerNation. "I got to go to a hockey game and basketball game, then hang with the coaches and current players. I also met with academic advisors, strength coaches and team doctors. I am just excited to be a part of everything at Wisconsin."

Deiter picked up his scholarship offer last spring from the Badgers and committed after working with offensive line coach T.J. Woods and graduate assistant Josh Oglesby during one of Wisconsin's high school summer camp.

As excited as the 6-5, 295-pound offensive lineman was to spend time around the football program, Deiter was just as excited to spend time watching his other favorite sport.

"The hockey game was awesome and I love hockey so much," said Deiter, laughing. "I really enjoyed myself there and hope to go to more."

A three-star recruit and the No.69 offensive guard in the country by, Deiter spent time mingling with the other commits during his time at Wisconsin, as well as his host, tight end Troy Fumagalli, and his primary recruiter special teams/ tight end coach, Jeff Genyk.

"(Troy and I) had a lot of fun," said Deiter. "We went and saw the town, and hung out in the dorms a lot. He talked to me and gave me a lot of advice on college. I talked with Coach Genyk and we just talked about the future. I am enrolling early and only have a week left of high school. It is crazy to think about it, but I am excited for the next step."

Deiter is one of four Badgers enrolling early, joining offensive lineman Jaden Gault, safety Austin Hudson and quarterback D.J. Gillins.
