Wisconsin Flips Three-Star Tight End Clay Cundiff

MADISON, Wis. – A primetime home game evidently showed tight end Clay Cundiff how impressive the University of Wisconsin could be in his feature.

The Wichita (KS) Bishop Carroll three-star tight end announced via Twitter Sunday night that he’s de-committing from Kansas and flipping to the Badgers’ 2019 class

“I want to thank the University of Kansas, Coach Beaty, and the entire staff for giving me the opportunity to play at the next level,” Cundiff wrote in a tweet. “After much thought and consideration, I feel that there is a better fit for me to further my academic and athletic career elsewhere.”

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Cundiff, a Class of 2019 consensus three-star prospect, committed to the Jayhawks in June but decided to take an official visit to Madison last weekend after the Badgers offered him a scholarship. He also took an official visit to Wisconsin last year for the Michigan game.

Recruited by wide receivers coach Ted Gilmore, Cundiff is the nation’s No. 60 ranked tight end per the 247sports composite, moving the Badgers up to No.31 in the country.

Cundiff became the 14th known commitment in the Badgers’ 2019 class and the second tight end, joining three-star Hayden Rucci out of Lititz, Pennsylvania. He also joins Graham Mertz, Blue Valley (KS) North senior quarterback, in the Badgers’ 2019 recruiting class. Cundiff and Mertz were teammates on their summer seven-on-seven team, Epic 7.
