Recruiting is the lifeblood of any main school athletics crew, however following it carefully as a fan can typically be troublesome and can usually be time consuming. We’ll strive and condense all of the recruiting information you should use into this bi-weekly (typically extra) publish. It’ll embody updates on present commits, together with stats from their highschool video games, in addition to information on the gamers Badgers nonetheless pursuing Let’s get right down to enterprise!
- Earlier this week, the Badgers prolonged a scholarship provide to 2025 EDGE Gabe Kaminski (La Grange Park, Ill.) out of Nazareth Academy. Along with Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa and Tennessee have additionally provided the proficient cross rusher. Other faculties which are displaying curiosity embody Michigan, Minnesota, Northern Illinois and Western Michigan.
Standing at 6-foot-3 and weighing round 215 kilos, Kaminski is not rated by any of the key recruiting companies but, however that is regular for a youthful participant like him. According to a tweet from Kaminski, he recorded 47 tackles (18 TFL), 12 sacks (25 QB hurries) and three pressured fumbles final season.
Here is his Hudl tape and, I’ll be trustworthy…it is spectacular. You wouldn’t assume he’s a freshman by watching these clips. He is tossing bigger offensive linemen apart on his approach to sacking the quarterback and he is additionally displaying good instincts on learn choice performs and not breaking include. He performs together with his hand within the filth and standing up, so it will be attention-grabbing to see the place Wisconsin envisions him enjoying. He is almost certainly nonetheless rising, so quite a bit will most likely rely on how a lot taller he will get.
I feel it is secure to imagine that Kaminski will find yourself being a extremely wanted prospect all through the midwest, if not nationally. The Badgers have been making a concerted effort to show Illinois right into a pipeline state and getting on early on a participant like Kaminski is a brilliant transfer.
