Quansah Gives Wisconsin Jitters

A new recruiting territory for the University of Wisconsin, the Badgers have been active in the state of Connecticut and offered West Hartford (CT) Kingwood Oxford junior outside linebacker Koby Quansah after watching his film.

Wisconsin has started to head out East to find some talent, which was not a big point of emphasis under former head coach Gary Andersen. The Badgers have been busy on the recruiting trail extending new offers this week and one of the latest went to West Hartford (CT) Kingwood Oxford junior outside linebacker Koby Quansah.

The rising linebacker prospect has been in communication with tight ends coach Mikey Turner, who really pushed for him, and has caused Quansah to be eager about the opportunity to learn more about Wisconsin.

“Coach Turner told me to give me a call and he extended the offer,” Quansah told BadgerNation. "I was thrilled and humbled by the offer. He said that the staff watched my film and the linebacker coach had jitters from it. I am very interested in Wisconsin, and I’m looking to visit as soon as I have the means to head down there, maybe in the spring or over the summer. I’m definitely considering them.”

The three-star 6-1, 218-pound athletic linebacker has seen his recruitment pick up by also recently adding offers from Michigan and Vanderbilt, but what does he know about his newest offer in the Badgers?

“I know it is the Cheese State and a couple other things," said Quansah. "I don’t know a lot about Wisconsin, but many I know something about. I know the general gist of Wisconsin in great academics and great football program. It is the Big Ten and a prestigious school. It is really big. Two of my friends are big Wisconsin and Green Bay fans, so I might go with them if we can arrange something.”

Quansah hopes to check out a few schools when he travels down to Florida for his spring break, including Maryland, Duke and North Carolina.
