Badgers Offer Canadian Lineman

Not afraid to go anywhere to recruit athletes that fit their mold, the Wisconsin coaching staff has targeted St. Catharines (ON) Prep Football Academy junior defensive end Neville Gallimore.

Head Coach Gary Andersen has made a point that he will recruit anywhere to find the best players who fit the mold of a Wisconsin athlete. Having hit plenty of new fertile recruiting grounds throughout the country, the Badgers have now ventured into Canada, as defensive line coach Chad Kauha'aha'a extended an offer to St. Catharines (ON) Prep Football Academy junior defensive end Neville Gallimore.

"I was very happy as well as excited to find out more about what they had to offer me, which is a lot both on and off the field," Gallimore told BadgerNation. "I also had the chance to speak with the head coach, Coach Andersen, and we had a serious and informative conversation. He spoke to me about the recruiting process. He explained their strong interest in me as well as what he feels the school and football program can do for me.

"They are a well respected program that has been known to produce pro-caliber players. They are a program with strong tradition and devoted coaches. I appreciate Wisconsin showing interest in what I can do to contribute on the field."

The 6-3, 280-pound defensive lineman holds offers from California, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi State, Nevada, Pittsburgh, Rice, South Florida, TCU, UCLA and Wake Forest. The three-star prospect is looking to lock down some visits.

"The trips that I plan on making so far would be Maryland, Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, and Eastern Michigan," said Gallimore. "Nothing has been confirmed yet. I would like to get the opportunity to make that trip to Wisconsin, but transportation and planning will have to be done in order to make that trip."
