Dunlap Closing In On Decision

Chris Dunlap enjoyed his visit to Wisconsin last weekend. But as he nears his decision, how much of a shot do the Badgers have?

After his visit to Wisconsin last weekend, Chris Dunlap still has the Badgers in his top two, as has been the case for at least the past several weeks.

He listed Georgia Tech, Wisconsin and Northwestern as his top three, but he has all but eliminated the Wildcats from consideration.

The 6-foot, 190-pound wide receiver/cornerback from Miramar High School in Florida finished this season with 38 catches for 715 yards and 10 touchdowns, with one interception on defense.

He said he was impressed with his visit to Madison.

"I really liked it. We got to see all of the facilities, the student-athlete center, the weight room, walk around the stadium and stuff," Dunlap said. "It was real cool."

Dunlap has visits scheduled for Northwestern Jan. 10 and Ole Miss Jan. 17, but said he likely won't make it that far.

"I don't need to take my visits to know what to choose," Dunlap said. "I have been to Georgia Tech a few times and I've been to Northwestern before. I feel like I've (seen) enough to make my decision."

Unfortunately for the Badgers, it appears Dunlap could be leaning towards Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets just extended an offer last week, although Dunlap had his eye on them from day one.

"Wisconsin is right up there. They are in my top two, but I really like Georgia Tech," Dunlap said. "It's close to home, the players and coaches are real cool, I really like the school...Location is not a big issue, but if I can find a good school that is close to home, that would be (a bonus)."

One thing that could sway Dunlap towards Wisconsin would be the coaching staff's assertion that he would see the field next year. That is one factor that's particularly important to Dunlap.

"The most important thing is the depth chart, and will I play early?" Dunlap said. "Wisconsin said I could play my first year, so that is a (positive)."
