Already with eight scholarships to his name, Luxemburg (WI) Casco junior offensive tackle Spencer Kanz has emerged as one of the state’s top players. Making the trip up to Madison Sunday, Kanz was given a tour of the campus from recruiting coordinator Ben Strickland, had an opportunity to watch practice and got some encouragement from the Wisconsin coaches.
“It went great,” Kanz told BadgerNation. “I got to talk to some of the coaches, Coach Haering and Coach Rudolph the most. I also talked to Coach Chryst. They just told me they are still kind of new, so they are still getting a feel for things. They just want to be patient and that they are trying to make a bigger push for in-state recruiting.”
The 6-6, 275-pound Kanz has offers from Army, Buffalo, Eastern Michigan, Florida Atlantic, Illinois, Miami (OH), Toledo and Western Michigan, but is working to earn the hometown offer from the Badgers.
“I thought it was great (about more in-state recruiting) because a lot of in-state players get overlooked,” said Kanz. “I’m very interested in Wisconsin because it’s a great school with rich tradition.”
Kanz is now the No. 52 ranked offensive tackle in the nation and a three-star recruit by Scout.
