Bryant Visits New Staff at Wisconsin

After visiting Wisconsin and the old coaching staff last fall, St. Louis Christian Brothers junior running back Tre Bryant got a chance to visit with the new Badgers staff Friday for a spring practice unofficial visit.

St. Louis Christian Brothers junior running back Tre Bryant was a prospect Gary Andersen and his staff targeted while at Wisconsin. The same holds true for the new Badgers coaching staff, which hasn’t abandoned their pursuit of the talented tailback. Paul Chryst and company are so interested they invited the three-star tailback on to campus for an unofficial visit Friday for spring practice.

“It went very well,” Bryant told BadgerNation. “They took me on a tour of the campus, which is beautiful. I also talked with the majority of the coaches as well as watch the team practice. I talked with Coach (Ted) Gilmore and Coach (John) Settle. They told me that they truly like my film and will continue to recruit me. Coach Gilmore said he will be up to my school in April.

“In my opinion, the new coaching staff has done a terrific job in reaching out to the prospects that had relationships with the old coaching staff. All of the new coaches seem like great coaches and even better people.”

The 5-10, 190-pound speedy back holds offers from Ball State, Indiana, Kansas, Kansas State and Missouri. After a second visit to Madison, he definitely feels more intrigued with the Badgers.

“This visit was more personal than the one I took back in the fall,” said Bryant. “I really enjoyed this visit. I am really interested in Wisconsin. I want to give equal attention to all of the colleges showing me interest as of right now.”

Bryant will be at Kansas State on April 13, Missouri’s spring game on April 18 and Indiana on April 19.
