Wisconsin defensive coordinator Dave Aranda’s 3-4 scheme needs versatile defensive linemen that can demand double teams to free up the linebackers and have the ability to create havoc in the backfield.
Indianapolis Warren Central junior defensive tackle Jasion Brogan holds those traits to make him a potential candidate to land a Badgers offer. After his visit to Madison Sunday, Brogan is even more eager to receive that offer.
“It went really great,” Brogan told BadgerNation. “I got to visit the campus, see the new facilities and meet the coaches. I also got to try on a jersey and watch them practice. I talked to the defensive line coach (Inoke Brecterfield), and he said that he appreciated me coming up there and he want me to come back and evaluate me.”
The 6-2, 270-pound Brogan had the opportunity to check out quite a few things, but overall thought the highlight of his trip was seeing that care the coaches have for the players on and off the field.
“The facilities and how much they about their players stood out to me,” said Brogan. “I could see how much they invested in the sports area to give their athletes better treatment and things. They then treat the walk-ons as the same as everyone else on the team. They give you your own personal tutor when you need help, too.”
“After the visit from Wisconsin, it’s in my top choices,” said Brogan. “I am interested.”
He currently doesn’t have a top list and has no upcoming visits.
