Wisconsin Loses A 2019 Commit

MADISON, Wis – For the third time in the 2019 recruiting cycle, the University of Wisconsin has seen a high school prospect flip his commitment to another school.

Mount Holly (N.C.) Mountain Island Charter School athlete Marcus Graham, who committed to the Badgers in April, announced on Twitter that he’s flipping to Stanford.

“First I want to start this off by thanking everyone at Wisconsin,” Graham tweeted. “From the coaches in Coach Chryst, Coach Gilmore and Coach Settle to all the people that I have met and encountered while I visited Wisconsin. I’m truly grateful for your belief in me as a person and as a student athlete.

“Over these past couple months I have been faced with many forms of adversity. These tests have made me more enlightened on where the bigger picture truly stands for me, which led me to announce that I am decommitting from the University of Wisconsin.”

Projected to play wide receiver for the Badgers, Graham ranks as a three-star prospect by 247sports and ESPN. UW gave the 5-foot-11, 175-pound athlete his first Power Five scholarship opportunity. Stanford extended a scholarship offer this summer.
In addition to Graham, wide receiver Nolan Groulx (Wake Forest) and safety Bryson Shaw (Ohio State) have backed off their commitments to Wisconsin.
The Badgers’ 2019 class currently sit at 13 prospects.
