On June 9th, a group of 2019 football recruits and commits made the trip to Madison. The weekend was a great opportunity to both solidify verbal commits and attempt to nail down recruits who are on the fence.
Badger fans should be excited to see California native Spencer Lytle suited up in cardinal and white for a bunch of photo opportunities. The Badgers hosted commitments including 5-star recruit Logan Brown (OT), Kansas’ #1 recruit Graham Mertz (QB), and Wisconsin-native running back Julius Davis, among other commits. Badger targets Spencer Lytle (3-star OLB) and Bryce Benhart (4-star OT) were reported to be in Madison.
The big weekend of visits came following the commitment of 3-star cornerback Dean Engram from Washington D.C. It remains to be seen how the 2019 football recruitment class will shape up. Blue-chip programs are in pursuit of both Graham Mertz and Julius Davis and the Badgers have already had two recommitments in the likes of Nolan Groulx and Bryson Shaw. This recruiting class could go down as the highest-rated Badger recruiting class in history, especially if the Badgers can add Lytle and Benhart to an already impressive class.
