After getting his first power five conference offer from Wisconsin Saturday, Amherst (WI) High defensive tackle Tyler Biadasz maintained that he wanted to finish his camp circuit before making any college decisions.
That was before he let the emotions of getting an offer from his dream school sink in.
“It sunk in Sunday night,” Biadasz told BadgerNation. “I woke up today and felt like I was ready. I had some questions for Coach (Chryst), and I felt like I was ready. I thought this was the best fit for me. The location is perfect for me and my family. This has been a dream since my freshman year.”
Biadasz becomes the sixth commitment in Wisconsin’s 2016 recruiting class and the third from in-state, joining Grafton defensive end Luke Benzschawel and Menomonee inside linebacker Mason Stokke. Currently unranked by Scout.com, Biadasz held offers from Illinois State, South Dakota State, Southern Illinois and Western Illinois and was getting offers from several FBS schools.
“Paul Chryst was excited,” said Biadasz. “He said that’s awesome and we’re happy to have you. They were excited about me as a football player. We were both excited, so that’s awesome.”
Expected to slot in at nose tackle in Wisconsin’s 3-4 defense, the 6-4, 275-pound prospect is anxious to start improving his game.
“I need to get stronger, faster and technique wise I need to improve,” said Biadasz, who recorded 77 tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, five sacks and three forced fumbles for the Division 5 state runner-up Falcons last season. “I just need to keep doing everything that I’ve been doing since freshman year, getting stronger and faster each year and learning new techniques.”
Canceling the rest of the camps he had scheduled, Biadasz plans to use that extra time for a little relaxation and to begin preparations to win his second state championship.
“I want to get back to the weight room, spend some times with my friends and enjoy the summer,” said Biadasz. “I want to get ready for the next football season now, because I don’t have to worry about my decision now. Hopefully we can go back to state for another title.”
