Wisconsin Badgers 2019 Signing Class Awards

MADISON, Wis. – With Wisconsin officially signing 19 scholarship players in its 2019 recruiting class, we hand out some awards.

The most talented player right now in this class is who and why?

It’s been 12 years since Wisconsin last landed a five-star prospect (Josh Oglesby) and 18 years since the Badgers landed one from out of state (Anttaj Hawthorne), so UW landing Brown is big time. The 6-6, 285-pound prospect was smitten with UW from the start, making a half-dozen unofficial visits to the school before he committed (he even bought his own tickets to see UW play LSU at Lambeau Field). A selection to the All-American Bowl, Brown was an all-state selection the last two seasons. His film is dominant and he’s only going to get better, stronger and faster.

UW will have a void at both tackle spots in the coming years. Brown will most certainly fill one of those and, if he stays healthy (unlike Oglesby), could challenge Joe Thomas for greatest Badgers lineman in history.
