Mulholland Stops by Wisconsin

Having played in Camp Randall in a high school football state title game, Kimberly (WI) junior tailback Blair Mulholland got to see a different side of Wisconsin's home stadium when he took an unofficial visit to the Badgers Saturday.

An emerging prospect on one of the best teams in the state is Kimberly (WI) junior running back Blair Mulholland. The versatile Mulholland made another trip to Madison this past weekend to see the Badgers take on Maryland and came away impressed.

“The visit went great,” Mulholland told BadgerNation. “I had breakfast with the coaches and some other recruits then toured the facilities. I got brought out onto the field and then watched the game. I left early, but everyone else on the visit went into the players’ lounge after the game. It was fun.”

“I talked to Coach (Ben) Strickland, who I’ve been in contact with,” added Mulholland. “He just said keep doing what I’m doing. I’m told him I’m working more into the slot this postseason and that I feel really comfortable there. I am listing myself as an athlete so any positions I can get film on is a huge positive. He seemed to like the idea. He likes me at both positions.”

The 5-10, 187-pound Mulholland is expanding his game and his recruiting process has begun to pick up. Mulholland said he’s heading from Illinois, Iowa, Iowa State, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota State, Toledo, Utah and Wyoming.

He has already visited Northern Illinois earlier this year and hopes to make it out to Minnesota, Iowa State and North Dakota State, but Wisconsin still remains the one school he’s most intrigued by.

“I’d like more contact from them if I was going to get serious about it,” said Mulholland. “Obviously being my hometown state school, I definitely would like to go there, but that definitely does not dictate if I will or not. The academics, offers/coach interest and the relationship I have with them determines where the right fit will be.”
