Wisconsin A Perfect Fit for Dietzen

Seymour (WI) four-star offensive tackle Jon Dietzen maintained that all schools were even in his recruitment early last week. By Saturday night it became clear that Dietzen wanted to live out his dream playing college football at Wisconsin.

Wisconsin picked up its fourth commit in the 2015 class and first in-state commitment when Seymour (WI) junior offensive tackle Jon Dietzen committed to be a Badger on Saturday night on a conversation to head coach Gary Andersen.

"It has been my dream all along to play at Wisconsin," Dietzen told BadgerNation. "Academically they offer exactly what I am looking for and obviously I love the offensive line tradition. I think I will be a great fit."

"I called Coach Andersen last night to let him know I was going public with my commitment at the camp. When he heard that, he said that he was probably the happiest coach in America."

Now with the 6-5, 330-pound four-star tackle in the fold, what does he plan on bringing to this Badgers squad in terms of his skill set?

"I think I will bring what I am doing right now with my game," said Dietzen. "Hopefully I can get my strength and power up. I want to be that road grader at the next level."

Dietzen is the No. 13 ranked offensive tackle in the nation by Scout who held offers from Illinois, Iowa State, Michigan State, Miami and Nebraska. The highly-regarded lineman sits as the top prospect in the state of Wisconsin and he wouldn't mind bringing some more talent to Madison.

"I haven't talked to anyone about really recruiting for Wisconsin," said Dietzen, "but I would not be against it because it is a great place to be."
