Wisconsin Badgers Land QB Braedyn Locke
Locke is a former 4-star QB prospect out of Rockwell, Texas. He spent this year red-shirted at Mississippi State before entering the transfer portal. He visited Madison this weekend and was impressed with what he saw. The vision that Fickell and Longo have for the program is resonating with recruits. Locke becomes the third 4-star recruit to commit to the team joining Nick Evers and Tanner Mordecai.
A Stacked QB Room
The QB room is flooded with talent. Both Evers and Locke are red-shirt freshmen and have plenty of time to develop. The most likely starter for next year is Tanner Mordecai as he only has one more year of eligibility left. This speaks to the vision that Phil Longo is bringing to the offense. Quarterbacks are excited to learn the offense and understand what it can do for their careers. The Badgers look to have the QB position figured out for years to come. It also is clear that they will have no issue bringing QB talent to Madison.
Braedyn Locke is another massive commitment for the Wisconsin Badgers. Fans are already excited to see what kind of product Luke Fickell can put on the field. Wisconsin looks to be a perennial contender in the Big Ten for years to come.
