A large contingent of in-state recruits were invited to make the trip to Wisconsin’s season opener over the weekend, including Milwaukee Lutheran junior linebacker Alvin Burris, an under-the-radar prospect who gave a raving review of his visit.
“Wisconsin was great man,” Burris told BadgerNation. “I loved it! It was a very electric atmosphere, and I couldn’t really have asked for a better experience. The coaches just told me that they are watching and want to see film, so stuff like that. My interest in Wisconsin is very high. If the opportunity is there, then I will take it. I love Wisconsin.”
At 5-10 and 210 pounds, Burris brings a hard-nosed mentality that makes up for his size, a characteristics in prospects that coaches at Wisconsin love to see.
“I like how they bring the blue collar work ethic to football,” said Burris. “They still have that old Big Ten feel to them. I grew up playing for a team called the Badgers, so I always been a fan.”
Overall Burris was wowed by his trip to Madison and hopes to continue his playing career one day in Camp Randall.
“It was a really good game when they got it going,” said Burris. “Wisconsin started a little slow and wasn’t really firing out like they did against LSU. I loved it there and I am going to put in a lot more work this season and offseason to hopefully have the chance to make Badgers fans happy one day.”
