Arguably the top player in the state regardless of class could be Hartland Arrowhead junior offensive guard Ben Bredeson, who has become one of the Wisconsin coaching staff’s biggest targets and priorities moving forward. The talented in-state lineman made his way up to Madison to see the Badgers take down the Bowling Green and got the chance to talk with the coaches.
“I just watched the game really and talked to the coaches during my visit,” Bredeson told BadgerNation. “I talked to Coach (Gary) Andersen and Coach (T.J.) Woods and we just caught up on what we were up to."
The 6-5, 280-pound Bredeson is ranked the No. 1 offensive guard and a four-star recruit by Scout.com, and Andersen has made it very apparent he wants him to stay home and has made an impact with the program.
“Coach Andersen is a genuine guy, and I always love talking to him,” said Bredeson. “I could definitely see myself playing for him. I’m very interested in Wisconsin. Being a home state kid helps, too. It was great to be back in Madison to see a game.”
Bredeson doesn’t have any other visits currently scheduled.
