The camp circuit has admittedly been a grind for Indianapolis Warren Central nose tackle Jasion Brogan, making numerous stops throughout the Midwest in hopes of adding to his modest scholarship total.
But as he walked away from Wisconsin’s second one-day camp Sunday, the grind over the last couple weeks allowed Brogan to turn in his best camp performance to date.
“I think I did an excellent-to-very-good job,” Brogan told BadgerNation. “I showed that I was coachable, I could deliver a pass rush and played pretty solid … I really enjoyed myself at this (camp). I had a great time, learned some stuff and felt this was my best.”
This is the second time Brogan has made the drive from central Indiana to Wisconsin’s campus. He visited in late April to get a tour of the campus, watch practice and meet with defensive line coach Inoke Breckterfield, who has been building a relationship with Brogan ever since.
“I think he’s a good coach,” said Brogan of Breckterfield. “He worked on a lot of techniques with the linemen. I think he’s a really good coach who helped me improved my football ability and my football IQ. We’ve had conversations here and there. I love the campus and love the coach staff. (Coach Breckterfield) can really break me down and make me a better person and a football player.”
Measuring in at 6-1 and 275 pounds, Brogan hopes to add more muscle to his frame before the start of his senior season. Holding offers currently from Ball State and Illinois, Brogan is started to get interest from Louisville and Purdue.
Brogan said he believes Wisconsin will take only a couple nose tackles in the class of 2016, the position he is being recruited at, and thinks he’s third on UW’s recruiting board. More importantly, he thinks he helped improved his stock during the two sessions.
“After camp we all sat down and told me that they are going to keep in touch,” said Brogan. “I’m going to see how it goes the rest of summer.”
