Is this your version of this weekend's visit?

Coach OtherthanHoke: Coach Hoke is too busy to talk to you right now, and he doesn't bother with recruiting. Markovits should have told you. Sooooo, thanks for stopping by and let us know whenever you can what you think.. Take care...

Ian: I'll announce my commitment  to UM tomorrow or early this week, I really like the laid back recruiting approach. Tell Coach Hoke I am sorry for bothering him.

6'6" 210 lbs....

Ranked #110 overall in the ESPN 150 #5 TE

4 Star on 247 #11 TE

3 Star on Scout #17 TE

3 Star on Rivals #14 TE

So, if you look at 247 and ESPN, we got the best TE we had a realistic shot at.

Wonder how Daniel Helm is feeling right now....

We have the start to one hell of an IM basketball team going if height was the main criteria.

Absolutely.  Our TEs are going to have lots of touches and they'll be lining up in all different spots on the field.  Look at Funchess last year - he was on the line, in the backfield and split wide.  If we have a player come through as good as Eifert or Rudolph, they'll have as much opportunity to showcase it as ND.

Wisconsin has produced a ton of NFL-caliber TE talent in recent years, too, so this was an exceptionally good get against big-time schools.   I know nothing about how the new Badger HC utilizes TE's, though, so maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree.   But he would be silly not to keep that TE middle screen in the playbook.  That damn thing worked all the time.
