2018 WR Dallas Craddieth Gets Badger Offer, Looks to Visit

Wisconsin has joined the mix for rising junior wide out Dallas Craddieth of Florissant (Mo.) Hazelwood Central.

Wide receiver Dallas Craddieth added his first offer from Iowa in March. Memphis, Missouri and Wisconsin have since followed suit in offering the 2018 prospect of Florissant (Mo.) Hazelwood Central.

"It feels great to be on a hot streak,” Craddieth said. "But now that I've got some Power Five offers I can't sit back and relax. I have to go get out there and stay on a hot trend. I don't want to quit now."

The Badgers have potential to go the distance in Craddieth’s recruitment. "Wisconsin is a great school,” Craddieth said. “They have top academics and top facilities. They are definitely in the mix for my recruitment and I plan on visiting. I hope to catch a game this year and see campus. They definitely have my attention and in a good way. I will be finalizing my plans this week once I'm done with school, and Wisconsin will be on my list for schools to visit."

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound wide out has begun to establish a strong rapport with the coaching staff in Madison.

"Honestly I don't know much about Wisconsin, but I know they produced top fleet players like J.J. (Watt) and Russell (Wilson), and I hope that could be me one day,” Craddieth said. “I just started talking to the coaching staff and they're real upbeat. They have an awesome way of connecting with reed hits and it is cool to talk to them.

“My visit should be really special and they're excited for me to meet the players and other staff, and so am I.”

Height, versatility and athleticism have propelled Craddieth into the spotlight on the recruiting trail.

"I love to use my athleticism and playmaking ability to go up and get the ball,” Craddieth said. “I can play anywhere needed and even play special teams I need to still work on my speed and strength, but I am doing that this summer. Wisconsin told me they love my agility and feel I'm an under-the-radar recruit and that's why they offered. That means a lot to me and I plan on only improving."
