Wisconsin is expected to have a huge recruiting month with plenty of prospects coming on campus for its high school summer camps, and the Badgers kick started the month by hosting Rosewell (GA) sophomore outside linebacker Tre Lamar for an unofficial visit.
"The visit went well," Lamar told BadgerNation. "We toured the campus and meet the coaches. I meet with Coach (Thomas) Brown, Coach (Dave) Aranda and Coach (Gary) Andersen. They told me I would be an inside linebacker in their defense and what life in Wisconsin would be like. I also met with the academic director about balancing classes with football."
"I'm definitely interested in Wisconsin and I liked all of the coaches after meeting with each of them during the visit. I really enjoyed my visit and I plan to come back to see it again."
The 6-3, 230-pound linebacker also rated his time at Madison and gave them high marks.
"I would give it an eight because I like the coaches I met there," he said, "and I liked the defensive schemes Coach Aranda uses."
The early four-star recruit holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Miami (FL), Mississippi State, North Carolina State, South Carolina, Syracuse, Central Florida, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin.
"I found out about the Wisconsin offer from Coach Brown at a workout at Rosewell High School," said Lamar. "I was excited and thankful to get the offer, but also a little surprised because I hadn't heard from them before that."
Lamar plans to visit Vanderbilt next in mid June.
