There are still many prospects hoping to receive that all important first scholarship offer and some are getting their faces in front coaches to establish that bond with them. Madison Lafollette junior cornerback Braden Jorenby is no different and this past weekend made the short trek to Wisconsin’s campus to meet with defensive backs coach Daronte Jones.
“I think the visit went great,” Jorenby told BadgerNation. “We got to take a tour of the campus and saw the weight room and the nutrition bar. We got to see some live practice between the offense and defense. We also took a little tour around the education center and saw where all the tutors and study room.
“I got to talk to Coach Jones, who is in charge of the defensive backs and we talked about things he looks for in recruits and the kind of stuff I should be working on right now. We also talked about how school is going for me right now and we discussed how the visit went.”
The 5-11, 187-pound versatile Jorenby experienced many of the great things the Badgers have to offer, but a couple parts stood out above the rest.
“The education center definitely stood out to me because it’s really nice to know that the coaches care so much about us graduating and getting our degree,” said Jorenby. “I also really liked how Coach Chryst runs the practices with different stations and everything. It was really impressive to see how fundamentally sound the coaching staff expects the team to be. The nutrition center was also a great thing to see. I thought it was pretty awesome that they have a whole area dedicated to the player’s health and to have options that the players would really like.”
A fan of the Wisconsin program growing up, Jorenby has always had a deep passion for the program. After his visit, UW is even more of a school he wishes to attend in the future.
“I’d say I’m extremely interested,” said Jorenby. “I’ve been in Madison my whole life. Growing up here and getting to go to football games every season really showed me at a young age that Wisconsin and the Badgers football team are a special thing to be a part of. My opinion only got better after the visit.”
Jorenby has no upcoming visits planned in the near future.
