Augustana Football Commit Nolan Vils commits to Wisconsin
Weeks after the Wisconsin Badgers recruiting numbers were in the single digits, the program has been on a hot streak in landing commitments. The Badgers landed former four-star quarterback Nick Evers this weekend. The Badgers added Nolan Vils, a defensive lineman, to their class of 2023 on Monday. According to Vils’ Twitter page, the preferred walk-on chose the Badgers. He had committed to Augustana Football, a Division III school. But he de-committed and chose the Badgers on Monday.
Per his statement:
“I’d like to thank all the coaches at Augustana [Football] for their interest in me and all that they have done for me. With that being said I have decided to de-commit from Augustana to continue my athletic and academic career at the University of Wisconsin.”
Nolan Vils is a Wisconsin native. He played football for Sauk Prairie High School before committing to Augustana Football. It’ll be interesting to see what he can do at Wisconsin. He’ll have a hard way to climb in order to win a scholarship and get playing time. But the Badgers have had success with walk-ons in the past.
