Most Nebraska natives in Camp Randall were not too thrilled about the outcome of the game the Huskers 59-24 loss to Wisconsin, but Omaha (NE) South Magnet junior defensive end Noah Fant felt quite the opposite following his unofficial visit.
“It went great,” Fant told BadgerNation. “I got to see the weight room, got to eat there and then walked around Camp Randall for a little bit. I got to go on the sideline and then we went to go up to our seats. It was a great experience.
“I got to talk to the defensive line coach and the head of recruiting coach. They both came up to me and we had good conversation while we were eating. I didn’t get to talk to Coach T.J. Woods, who was the one who recruits me because he was busy. They said they were real excited for me to come up and we talked about my season and talked about the game Wisconsin was about to play.”
This versatile and athletic 6-4, 210-pound defensive lineman thought this experience to Wisconsin opened up his eyes.
“They definitely got my attention and I’m pretty interested in what they have there,” said Fant. “The stuff I like most is the coaches really look out for their players and are there to make them better. The team has an aura about them that is great. The crowd was wild. Overall great environment and one of the best games I’ve been to. I’m very impressed with Wisconsin and if things work out, I would definitely look forward to being a Badger.”
Fant holds an offer from South Dakota State and is hearing from Missouri and Nebraska, but how big would a Wisconsin offer be?
“It would be huge for me,” said Fant. “That’s a great school to be offered by because it is such a good program and that would definitely mean a lot to me.”
