While Wisconsin has recently struck out on a couple of defensive back targets, the Badgers coaching staff is still relentlessly working around the clock to find that next piece to their class.
One hot spot the staff has been aggressive recruiting, especially running backs coach Thomas Brown, is Georgia, where Brown recently touch based with Valdosta (GA) senior cornerback, and Cincinnati commit, Joshua Norwood to see if there is any interest on his end.
“I have heard from Wisconsin,” Norwood told BadgerNation. “Coach Brown has been talking to me, he likes me and they are recruiting me. He seems like a good coach and we stay in contact. I like that and he really shows a lot of interest. I am interested in them and I will be trying to go on a visit if they offer. I have to set up the official visit with the coaches. I also have a friend I know that's going there from Grayson.”
That friend is three-star outside linebacker Mohamed Barry, who committed to Wisconsin in June and has put on his recruiting hat to possibly help securing the 6-0, 165-pound athletic corner.
“I do know Mohamed,” said Norwood, a three-star prospect. “We talk on twitter and stuff we have been to a couple 7 on 7 together. He talks a lot about Wisconsin. We both are from Georgia and I know he gets after it just like I do.”
If the Badgers were to throw their ring in the circle, how would that impact the No. 136 cornerback by Scout.com?
“It would mean a lot and it would give me another diverse opportunity,” Norwood said. “I am going to say this, I won't turn down other offers to balance out my choices, I will take a visit and make my decision.”
