Commitment Impact - Tyler Biadasz

Earning an offer after his Wisconsin camp performance, Amherst (WI) defensive tackle Tyler Biadasz becomes the latest in-state recruit to commit to the Badgers. How will he help the Badgers on the defensive line? BadgerNation looks at the commitment impact.

Committed Over: Amherst (WI) High defensive tackle Tyler Biadasz committed to Wisconsin over offers from Illinois State, South Dakota State, Southern Illinois and Western Illinois.

Rated: Biadasz is currently unranked by

On Film: I always like kids, especially in this age of recruiting, who go to camp and earn offers, which is what Tyler did. He's a tough, strong kid who bends well on film, gets off the ball well and shows that he can stand up and be effective or play inside with his hand down, which is what I think he will do in college. My question on him was always an unknown because we rarely get to see him go against other kids at size, the fact that he did that at camp and earned an offer makes me feel like that's not a question anymore. – National Recruiting Analyst Allen Trieu

Recruiting Impact: Wisconsin was looking to take one, maybe two, defensive tackles in this class and struck out thanks to Michigan State taking Naquan Jones and Mike Panasiuk Monday. Biadasz’s commitment helps fulfill that quota, especially since UW’s nose tackle position is still relatively young.

Wisconsin currently has offers out to three prospects who claim to have some interest in the Badgers – four-star Garrett Rand (Arizona), three-star Jake Saunders (Ohio) and Isaiahh Loudermilk (Kansas). All three would be tough pulls at this point in time.

Quotable: “I woke up (Monday) 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

Final Thought: Why do people continue to complain and bemoan the coaching staff from taking in-state recruits, who recruiting services have not currently ranked, instead of “higher ranked” players elsewhere? Haven’t people learned the lesson over the last decade that in-state prospects seldom flame out?

Biadasz has really blossomed over the last three years and his best football is ahead of him. That’s part of the reason why Wisconsin offered him after his camp performance. Seems like a reasonable move to me.
