Bain will visit Wisconsin Monday

Bolingbrook, Ill., linebacker/defensive lineman taking his second unofficial visit in Madison

Ryan Bain visited Wisconsin for a junior day and is coming back for a second unofficial visit Monday.

"I'm still looking at Wisconsin, Purdue, Michigan State, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Ohio State, UCLA, Oregon and just a few others," Bain said. "I don't have any top lists or anything right now."

Bain has scholarship offers from all of the schools he is considering except Ohio State. He said he has more than 20 offers, most recently one from UCLA.

At 6-foot-2, 260 pounds, Bain could play linebacker, defensive tackle or defensive end in college. Two schools—Minnesota and Oregon—have also discussed trying Bain at fullback.

"I'm still considering them but I'd rather play defense," Bain said. "They've talked about fullback and defense."

The Badgers want Bain to play defensive end.

Bain has previously visited Purdue, Iowa, Nebraska, Iowa State and most recently made a one-day trip to Michigan State Friday.

Wisconsin made a favorable impression on Bain during his first visit. Now, he wants to learn more.

"I like everything, I just want to see more of it," he said. "I want to meet more with my position coach.

"I just want to talk with coach (Barry) Alvarez and (defensive line coach John Palermo) more and just see more of the facilities."

"I'm going to meet with an academic advisor. I'll get a lot of my questions answered there.

"I feel comfortable when I go up there and I'm around the coaches and I know it's a hard school to get into academically. They have good academics and I like the coaches."
