Local QB Checks out Wisconsin

Holding the Badgers in high regard since he was young, Mount Horeb (WI) junior quarterback Max Meylor says he's on the radar of the Wisconsin coaching staff.

Wisconsin hosted several prospects on campus Sunday with most coming from around the state, like Mount Horeb junior quarterback Max Meylor. The talented gun-slinger recaps how his visit to Madison went and his first impression of offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph after meeting him.

“It was excellent,” Meylor told BadgerNation. “Wisconsin is a great college and atmosphere for the student athletes. We watched practice and took a tour around the Camp. I got to talk to Coach Rudolph for a bit as well. He told me that I’m a guy on their radar. I need to perform well at one of their camps this summer, and they really like me on film of what I have to offer.

“That was the first time I’ve chatted with him, but we will keep in touch this spring. He’s a great guy and all of the coaches are great people and better coaches.”

The 6-2, 190-pound quarterback is still waiting to receive that first offer but has heard of a number of D-1 programs. Knowing it will take a good camp performance to see the Badgers’ interest rise in him, Meylor’s interest towards the hometown team has been there since his early childhood.

“I’ve always been a fan of the Badgers and deeply interested,” he said. “What stood out to me on the visit was how great of a program it is and it’s the power of the Big Ten West, also their top notch facilities like the weight room, nutrition bar and the football lounge area.”

At the moment Meylor has no visits planned in the upcoming weeks.
