The Badgers saw many top prospects traveled into Madison to watch Paul Chryst first spring game as head coach of Wisconsin and one of those recruits were Wexford (PA.) North Allegheny sophomore offensive tackle Josh Lugg. The young highly touted, but physically impressive offensive lineman talks about his time spent in Wisconsin and his conversations with several of the Badger coaches as well.
“It was a great visit,” Lugg told BadgerNation. “I had spent a lot of time with (Special Teams Coordinator) Coach (Chris) Haering and (Offensive Coordinator) Coach (Joe) Rudolph. I learned a lot about the Wisconsin football and academic programs. Both were very impressive. We talked about how I would be a good fit into their program.”
The 6-6, 280-pound Lugg didn’t make the trip up to Madison alone as his family accompanied him and they had that same positive feel after leaving Wisconsin as well.
“My family and I also met with (Head) Coach (Paul) Chryst,” said Lugg. “We discussed the expectations and goals they had for the Wisconsin football program and how I would be a good fit on the team. My family really likes it here and we are already talking about visiting again in the fall.”
After a very successful visit to Wisconsin, Lugg is even more intrigued with the Badgers especially seeing the academic side of things.
“I am very interested in Wisconsin,” said Lugg. “I like that they put a emphasis on academics and not just the football program. The campus is beautiful as well.”
While Lugg already holds two offers from Pittsburgh and Wisconsin, he understands it is still very early in his recruitment and is nowhere close to listing any leaders at this point.
“It’s still too early in the recruiting process,” said Lugg. “Therefore I have no definite leader. Right now I am gathering information from schools, so I can make the right choice when the time comes.”
