"It went very good, Kern told BadgerNation. "I got a tour of the locker room and all athletic facilities. I really enjoyed the campus and city also. Wisconsin is a great environment to be in with a hard-working tradition that I hope to make a contribution to. I also got to talk to the coaches and they said they liked my physicality and that I had grown a little since camp. I got to personally talk to offensive line coach, Coach Woods and he said he liked my tape and that he definitely wanted me at camp just so he could further evaluate me."
Having already visited Buffalo, Indiana, Nebraska, North Dakota State and South Dakota State, Kern plans to return to Madison for summer camp in June. He also hopes to visit the Hoosiers, Cincinnati and Missouri for spring games and has been invited to junior days at Cornell, Penn and Princeton.
"I have heard from Indiana, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Cincinnati, North Dakota State, Penn, Cornell, Princeton, Iowa State, Sacred Heart, Illinois, Buffalo and Holy Cross," he said. "South Dakota State has began to discuss scholarships with me. I am just going through the process and taking it in."
