Visit Seals The Deal

Jake Byrne, a 6-foot-5, 245-pound, tight end, from Rogers, Ark., is verbally committed to Wisconsin. Byrne is putting together the finishing touches on his senior season. He took the time out to talk to Badger Nation about his first Badgers football experience and when he'll be taking his official visit.

"We're 4-2 in conference right now and 6-3 overall," Jake Byrne told Badger Nation.

"We need to win our next game to get into the play-offs. We're working hard right now and we're focused on getting to the play-offs and hopefully winning a state championship.

"I had my first game experience in Madison for the Iowa game and it was phenomenal. Everything was more than I ever expected. After the game, and the everything settled down, I knew that there's was no doubt that Wisconsin was the school for me.

"The game atmosphere, the students, the school, Wisconsin is the total package and it just sells itself. The trip was just awesome."

When does Byrne plan on making his official visit?

"It really depends on the play-offs," Byrne said. "Right now I'm looking at early in the basketball season but I haven't set a definite date yet."
