"I was very overwhelmed when I found out that I had gotten an offer from Wisconsin," Sturghill told BadgerNation. "My high school earlier in the week was telling me that Wisconsin was really interested in me. I talked to Coach Chad (Kauha'aha'a) today over the phone and he told me that he really liked me for a defensive back. He told me that they are looking for corners, so that is what they are recruiting me as."
The 5-11, 170-pound versatile Sturghill holds nine offers, including Purdue, UCLA and Vanderbilt. With an official visit to Madison booked for January 31, Sturghill is hoping for a quick final decision following his visit.
"I am very excited for my official visit to Wisconsin," said Sturghill. "I know that Wisconsin is in the Big Ten and they had a good season this year. I have been keeping up with them, but I just didn't know they were going to offer me. I haven't decided where else I will visit and I don't have a top school at the moment.
"I will either commit at the end of the month after I take my Wisconsin official visit or on signing day. There is a chance that I could just commit on the visit if I like it enough at Wisconsin."
