An emerging prospect in the Midwest is Fond du Lac (WI.) senior defensive tackle Robert Windsor. The sleeper defensive tackle has went from being unranked and holding zero offers to recently becoming the No. 77 ranked defensive tackle, a three star recruit and holds six offers. He now has caught the attention of the Badgers and this weekend, the rising in-state defensive lineman took an unofficial visit to Wisconsin and recaps how his time went.
“It went well,” Windsor told BadgerNation. “I got to go on the sideline and in the locker room after the game. I talked to Coach Ben Strickland and asked about his level of interest and he told me Coach Gary Andersen watched my film the other day, so it was serious. I was supposed to talk to him after the game, but he was busy with interviews.”
The 6-5, 260-pound physical defensive lineman enjoyed watching the hometown Badgers rally early and never look back as they ran past Nebraska, but what he liked most was the post game celebration.
“I thought it was awesome watching the Badgers come back,” said Windsor. “My favorite part was being I'm the locker room after the game. Just being around the team was a great experience and what made it better was the great victory, so everyone was enthused.”
With Windsor’s recruitment exploding over the last few weeks, how much would a Wisconsin offer affect it?
“It would mean a lot if Wisconsin offered because I grew up rooting for Wisconsin,” said Windsor. “Yeah, there's a chance I would commit.”He plans on taking an official visit to Illinois and Purdue in December
