Wisconsin has extended multiple offers in the state, including extending the first offer to Clearwater Catholic Central (FL) athlete Jeff Smith.
"My baseball team and I had just finished winning a big game against East Lake and my cousin kind of hinted the news of the Wisconsin offer, but I thought they were joking until I really found out," Smith told BadgerNation. "We all just went crazy because it's always been a dream to play big time college football. I did not see this offer coming. It came out of nowhere."
The 6-1, 170-pound Smith played quarterback primary during his junior season, throwing for 1,366 yards and seven touchdowns last season, but is being recruited as a cornerback/athlete by the Badgers because of his 4.52 40-yard dash and 4.28 shuttle.
"I know Wisconsin is Big Ten football and has a great academic school along with that it is a huge college town," he said. "I also know that Russell Wilson graduated from there as well."
"I definitely plan on visiting Wisconsin in the future," said Smith. "As far as camping there, maybe, but I don't know. I have to check dates with my dad, who is a coach at my school and see what the plan is … I am very excited to get to know more about the school and will definitely pay them a visit."
