Dews Picks Up Late Wisconsin Offer

Although primary focused on the 2015 and 2016 recruiting classes, Wisconsin is still keeping its eyes open for talented high school seniors. That's one of the reasons why the Badgers offered Oxon (MD) Potomac outside linebacker Jerome Dews.

Wisconsin has been passing out offers left and right for the 2015 and 2016 classes, but one class they haven't quite closed the door on yet is 2014. With Chris Beatty out on the East Coast, Wisconsin's wide receiver coach extended an offer to Oxon (MD) Potomac outside linebacker, and Tennessee commit, Jerome Dews.

"I just got offered Saturday," Dews told BadgerNation. "I'll be down there for an official visit. Coach Beatty called my coach and I guess they spoke and he told me. I was very excited. Right now I'm interested in Wisconsin, but I never been down there so I don't really know how much yet (laughter). I've gotten mail, but never really heard from them."

Recruiting the 6-4, 200-pound Dews as a hybrid outside linebacker/strong safety, does Wisconsin have a chance to flip Dews on his official?

"Haha, no, I'll have to wait it out," said Dews.

Dews sits as the No. 72 outside linebacker in the nation and a three-star commit by Scout, who held offers from Delaware, Hampton, Indiana, James Madison, Ohio, Purdue, Robert Morris, St. Francis (PA) and Temple before ultimately picking a grayshirt offer from Tennessee.

"I'll be going to prep for five months than to report to Tennessee in January 2015 if I do not go elsewhere," said Dews. "I am hearing from UCLA, Kansas State and West Virginia, plus I might take an official to UCLA or whoever hits me up."
