Detroit Cass Tech 2018 safety Deandre Square had two goals entering Wisconsin's high school summer camp last weekend: to improve his overall game and to get the attention of Wisconsin's staff. In his mind, he did both of those.
"I talked with multiple coaches, Coach Leonhard and a couple more,” Square told BadgerNation. “Coach Leonhard said to stay in contact and he thought I was one of top performers of the day. He said that I should visit and catch a game this year, so I will definitely be visiting for a game. I can't wait to feel the electricity in the stadium when the time comes."
Holding early offers from Cincinnati, Iowa State, Kentucky and Syracuse, Square has been a hot commodity lately. Believing Wisconsin could be one of the next schools to offer him, Square said the Badgers will be his top school because of his love for the staff and their ability to create a high level of competition.
"The camp was one of the most fun I've had in a long, long time,” Square said. “I learned from some of best coaches in the country and had fun doing it. I learned about body position, turning on routes and more. The intensity is definitely different than high school and in a good way. I can't wait to hopefully get to next level, and realistically I could see myself playing for Wisconsin."
Rating Madison as one of his favorite towns he has visited, Square said the campus made him feel comfortable and that he could see himself living there.
"It's a great town,” Square said. “It's been rated No.1 town by many sports sites and I can back that up. Me and my teammate, Xavier (Goldsmith), both agree we could play their together if we have the opportunity, and an offer would mean the world to me. It would be a huge exclamation point on my year and give me a lot of confident going into next year."
