Badgers Offer Top 2017 Offensive Lineman

Needing to continue to build depth along its offensive line, Wisconsin offered one of the top prospects in the 2017 class - Owings Mills (MD) McDonogh sophomore Jordan McNair - on Friday.

Owings Mills (MD) McDonogh sophomore offensive tackle Jordan McNair woke up this morning having had very little contact with the University of Wisconsin. Things quickly changed after Badgers secondary coach Daronte Jones stopped by to check on a few prospects, including seeking out McNair to give him a scholarship offer.

“I had no idea that they were going to offer me,” McNair told BadgerNation. “My coach texted me and told me to come down to his office. At first I thought they came just to see my teammate Eric Burrell since they had already offered him. Once I went down there I talked to Coach Jones and he told me that they were going to offer me. I wasn’t expecting that he was going to tell me that. We couldn’t talk that long because of the rules, but he told me that I have impressive film.”

The 6-5, 286-pound McNair is already one of most coveted linemen in 2017. An early four-star recruit by Scout, he holds offers from Illinois, Maryland, Ohio State, Penn State and now Wisconsin. With his latest from the Badgers, how interested is he in Wisconsin?

“I am very interested,” said McNair. “I like their style of play with the way they run the ball. I want to visit them sometime in the summer.”

There is still tons of time before McNair has to narrow his list of any sort, so he is taking his time and is focused on closing out the school year strong.

“I don’t have a top list and I don’t have any visits coming up,” said McNair. “I’m going to finish out the school year first.”
