Wisconsin Flips Fullback Quan Easterling For Its 2019 Class

Having already flipped two committed prospects to help Wisconsin depth, the Badgers convinced another committed prospect to join its 2018 class, although this one could have a more immediate impact.

Following his official visit to Madison over the weekend, Akron (OH) Hoban athlete Quan Easterling flipped his commitment from Akron to UW’s 2019 class.

“They like that I’m physical,” he told BadgerBlitz.com. “They have a senior that is graduating and they want me to help replace him. They think I can also play H-back and they like that I’m versatile.”

Offered by the Badgers in October, four months after he committed to Akron over offers from Dartmouth and Toledo, Easterling was already considering a flip to UW before the Zips fired head coach Terry Bowden. His visit helped convince him to cancel an official visit to UCLA, which had also offered, slated for this upcoming weekend.

Easterling is Wisconsin’s 18th verbal commitment in their 2019 recruiting class, which currently ranks No. 28 in the 247sports composite national team recruiting rankings.

The 6-2, 235-pound fullback is rated a three-star prospect by the 247sports composite and was recruited by offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph off Hoban’s undefeated state championship team.

With the graduation of fullback Alec Ingold following this season, Eastering has the opportunity to compete for playing time in the fall.

“They have a senior fullback, so I think that opens up an opportunity,” he told 247sports, previously. “If I go there and work for it, I might be able to play. Plus, it’s a chance to get away from home.”

Eastering joins Stephan Bracey (Western Michigan) and Clay Cundiff (Kansas) as prospects Wisconsin has flipped this year. All three are expected to sign during the early signing period, which begins Dec. 19.
