Hughes Contemplating Wisconsin Offer

Having a desire to keep the best players in state, Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst offered a greyshirt offer to Franklin (WI) senior offensive tackle Vincent Hughes Sunday.

After Gary Andersen let some of in-state prospects get away to Northern Illinois, new Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst is trying to right the wrongs.

Shortly after offering Green Bay (WI) Bay Port athlete, and Northern Illinois commit, Alec Ingold, Wisconsin offered another Huskies commit in Franklin (WI) senior offensive tackle Vincent Hughes a greyshirt offer. He recaps his talk with Badgers offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph and his reaction to the news.

“I spoke to Coach Rudolph and they offered me a greyshirt scholarship,” Hughes told BadgerNation. “He said he really likes me a player and wants to see me play at Wisconsin. The greyshirt scholarship will allow me to develop physically over time. I would take the offer into consideration. I like Wisconsin, however, the relationship I have with Northern Illinois is very strong. A decision will be made in the next 24 hours.”

The three-star 6-6, 250-pound tackle has thought about receiving a Badgers scholarship for quite some time. So with a tough decision forthcoming, what will be the main factors he takes into consideration?

“I will consider how long it will take me to get on the field and the relationship I currently have with each staff,” said Hughes. “I still have to discuss this with my family.”
