Arguably the farthest traveler of the huge turnout of recruits present for Wisconsin’s spring game this past weekend was Cypress (TX) Ranchjunior outside linebacker Brayden Stringer. The Lone Star State hard hitter coming in had some uncertainty as to what Madison would all be about, but he got more than he even expected by experiencing the city, bonding with the coaches and ultimately growing a further interest in the Badgers.
“The visit went really good,” Stringer told BadgerNation. “I really like the coaching staff because they are all down to earth guys. The campus was awesome and just a really cool town. I talked to Ted Gilmore, Dave Aranda, Tim Tibesar and head coach Paul Chryst. They were the main ones I talked to. They were really happy I made it down because they like to have face to face conversation with me and get to know me better and look over some defensive things, so it meant a lot to them for me to make the trip.”
Some speculated Stringer could be on commit watch with a strong visit to Wisconsin, but he is just waiting for that right gut feeling to come upon on him as he takes his recruitment day by day.
“Wisconsin is an amazing city with great people and I really enjoyed my time there,” said Stringer. “I really liked Wisconsin, so we will see what happens. I’m not in the committing mind set right now. I’m just going off my gut after I see the school I want to. No school is leading for me right now. I’m still evaluating my options.”
Moving forward, Stringer is working to make it to Texas Tech on May 9th for a visit
