The state of Wisconsin has a deep crop of talented offensive linemen in 2016. A number of those prospects already hold offers from D-1 programs, but a name that is not mention as much as other recruits thus far has been Ashwaubenon junior center/offensive tackle Airon Servais.
Currently holding one offer from Eastern Michigan, Servais attended Wisconsin’s spring practice and the scrimmage’s intensity was something that definitely caught his attention.
“It was great,” Servais told BadgerNation. “The facilities were outstanding and the atmosphere of the practice was intense. I talked to (Offensive Coordinator Joe) Rudolph and he said that it was great getting to see me in person. He asked if I am attending the camp on May 31st and I will. He said from seeing my in person, I have great size and length and at camp I should be prepared to be worked.”
The big 6-6, 260-pound Servais has also heard from Bowling Green and North Dakota State but feels strongly intrigued by the Badgers after the visit to Madison. A big reason why was the highly competitive practice and the energy throughout.
“I am very interested,” said Servais. “The intensity of the practice definitely stood out to me. The energy was incredible. After any great play, the sidelines would erupt with shouts and the guys would get really pumped.”
He plans on visiting Western Illinois next weekend.
