Two offers roll in for Snow DB

Snow DB Preston Hadley (6-0, 200) has helped lead the Badgers to a 7-2 record this season with his sure-tackling style and playmaking ability and that productivity has led two schools - one from the MAC and one from the Pac 10 -- to pony up offers for the talented DB...

"I got offered by Washington State and Kent State this week," Hadley told "It's exciting getting those first two offers in and one is from the Pac 10 which I'm really thankful for.

"When you play in a conference like that, every week is a big game and you can never take a play off, so to get an offer from a program in that conference is really humbling, but really exciting too.

"Coach (Jody) Sears is the one recruiting me for them and he likes me me at corner but their defensive coordinator (Chris Ball) is also the safeties coach and he wants me at safety, so I think they would be battling over me if I went there.

"They want me to visit and we're working on dates for me to come up there. Right now the best chances for me to visit there are November 20th or December 11th, so we'll firm up a date soon."

Hadley said he's also scheduled to visit BYU early next week and could get an offer from the Cougars while he's in Provo.

"Coach (Bronco) Mendenhall and I have talked before," Hadley said. "I went there for an unofficial visit in the summer and he personally showed me around and I got to talk to him about things.

"He invited me up next Monday evening to come and talk to him, so I'm hoping to get an offer from him as well, but right now they haven't offered."

In addition to those three schools, Hadley said that New Mexico State had extended an offer (only verbal at this point) and Utah State had also shown a lot of interest.

"I'm interested in anyone that wants to recruit me right now," Hadley noted. "I've kept an open mind about things and I'll take my visits before I make a decision."

Snow consistently produces D-1 ready prospects and Hadley has proven himself over the past two season to be ready to handle the rigors of top-end college football.

As a redshirt freshman last fall, Hadley had 60 tackles, two fumble recoveries, one forced fumble and six passes defensed and this season he's been stellar in the secondary for the Badgers posting over 60 tackles and an interception.

He will be able to sign with a school in December and he'll have two years to play two wherever he ends up.
