Pfaff Locked In After Official

Getting a chance to talk to interim head coach Barry Alvarez, other members of the staff and hang on with future teammates, Mequon Homestead defensive end David Pfaff is excited for his future at Wisconsin.

In a time of coaching turmoil at Wisconsin, there are many questions to be answered, especially in regards to a highly-ranked 2015 recruiting class. The Badgers had their three committed in-state prospects take their official visits this past weekend, including Mequon Homestead David Pfaff. Not a stranger to Madison, Pfaff got to take in much more this time around.

“We went to the banquet to see all the seniors, and it was really cool,” Pfaff told BadgerNation. “I got to hang out with some of the players that night, which was fun. Me and Jon Dietzen knew the guys we were hanging with personally beforehand… We watched practice and a little more in-depth about some of the stuff they do there and what we will be doing when we get there. Basically we went out to breakfast, lunch and dinner a bunch of times, and we ate so much from the whole trip. I am stuffed.”

The 6-3, 255-pound physical defensive lineman is ranked a three-star recruit and the No. 35 defensive end in the nation by Scout.com. His overall play this season earned him the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association’s defensive player of the year honors in the state. Although some other schools have been in contact since the coaching change and the current UW staff will likely change, Pfaff still feels confident in his decision.

“I talked to some of the remaining staff in Coach Chad (Kauha’aha’a) and Coach (Ben) Strickland,” said Pfaff. “I would have been kind of bummed if I didn’t but I got to. No one really knows at this point what is going to be happening. There is a couple coaches that say they might stay, but then again we didn’t talk about that very much. I don’t know what is going on with the coaching staff, but after this weekend I completely trust the Badger staff and administration to take care of it. We are going to keep going and be a successful program.”

Like many other fans of the program, Pfaff has heard the rumors that Pittsburgh head coach Paul Chryst might be his future head coach.

“I don’t know if that is true or not, but he is a great coach,” said Pfaff. “If that’s what happens, then that is what happens. Coach Alvarez said they want to get a coach quick, but that could mean a lot of things. Coach Alvarez is a busy guy and it is priority one right now, but I am sure he will make his decision sooner than later.”

With Barry Alvarez being the acting head coach, Pfaff got the unique experience of having a chance to talk with the hall-of-fame coach, something he definitely treasures after this visit.

“I have seen him around, but you have not really met him until you actually talked to him,” said Pfaff. “We had a nice breakfast and that guy when he talks you listen. Everything he says is something. He is a great coach. He could be talking about how you scrub the floor and it’s awesome. He is ‘the godfather,’ and he is an awesome guy. I am just blessed to have him as our AD and coach right now. He just brings excellence no matter what he is doing.”

The positives for Pfaff from his official visit were plentiful. While sitting down with Alvarez might have been the main highlight, getting a chance to spend time with people around the program and his future teammates was probably his favorite part.

“Everyone gets along here it seems like and that was a big thing for me,” said Pfaff. “I didn’t want to come into a program where there was a lot of hate or conflict within the team. I am not trying to come into a program like that and it didn’t seem like that at all. It seems like a very fun place to be and hard working.

“I just got the feeling of what it means to be a Badger and this was the big trip. Jon (Dietzen) liked it, Zack (Baun) liked it and we loved the guys. All the guys we met were really nice and treat the freshmen good. It solidified why I wanted to be a Badger and what this program means to me.”
