Garland (TX) Lakeview Centennial receiver Shamond Greenwood hopes to take a closer look at Wisconsin

Already having a verbal commitment from one Texas receiver in the 2017 class, Wisconsin is hoping to make another big impact if Garland (TX) Lakeview Centennial receiver Shamond Greenwood visits this summer.

Numbers don't lie … and a 4.43 40-yard dash doesn't either. This is how 2017 3-star Garland (TX) Lakeview Centennial receiver Shamond Greenwood likes to look at his game: a big, fast athlete who will get the 50/50 balls.

Wisconsin figures to be in an uphill battle for Greenwood, who is looking to play college ball with his current quarterback Kamron Fields. Although the Badgers aren’t in the market for a second quarterback in the 2017 class, Greenwood is still "very open" to Wisconsin following the Badgers recently offering him.

“Wisconsin's reputation is superior and they have an outstanding coaching staff,” Greenwood told BadgerNation. “I wish they would have offered my teammate, Kamron Fields, but I understand they already have a quarterback and that's perfectly fine. I'm definitely not counting them out, and they will see me this summer on a visit. I plan on visiting with my family."

Up to double digit offers, including Iowa, Mississippi State and Utah, the 6-3, 210-pound Greenwood said he has no top schools and is “just enjoying the process.”

"It's fun,” Greenwood said. “The best part of recruiting process is taking visits and seeing all different parts of country. Another part I really like is meeting all coaches. I recently have been in contact with Wisconsin right before they offered, and they're a real good staff from what I can tell. They run a tight ship, expect a lot of their players and that's what I am looking for. I know I can produce for them, and I could see myself playing for them in near future."

Finishing last season with 19 catches for 330 yards (17.4 yards per catch), Greenwood describes himself as a "big-framed, fast wide receiver" who can only get better.

"My game is made on my speed and size,” he said. “The Wisconsin staff said I would be a great asset to their 2017 class and that intrigues me. I love what they're doing up there and that's one reason while I'll visit. The campus up there is one of best ones in country from what I've heard. I also saw Madison was rated No.1 football town so I'll have to learn more about that. Wisconsin has it all, one reason why they're really sticking out to me."
