With an emphasis on adding speed to the current roster, Wisconsin assistant coach Bill Busch targeted Serge Trezy, who reportedly runs a 4.29 40-yard dash, early in the recruiting process.
Thursday, the Badgers landed a commitment from the junior college athlete, who is expected to play safety at UW. Busch, along with head coach Gary Andersen, had an in-home visit with Trezy in Orlando prior to his verbal pledge.
"I committed to Wisconsin," Trezy told BadgerBlitz.com moments ago. "Coach Andersen was real happy. He said that I will be a big impact for the team. He wasn't going make me commit, I just had to pick the right place to go, and I did.
"It feel good to let it out. Now I can worry about my work only."
Trezy, a 6-foot-2, 217-pound prospect from Thatcher (AZ) Eastern Arizona J.C., chose UW over offers from Southern Miss., Utah and Cincinnati, among others. He is Wisconsin's 25th commit in the 2014 class.
"They (Wisconsin) are brining me in as a safety, but they think I can return kicks if needed," Trezy told BadgerBlitz.com after his official visit.
Originally from Florida, Trezy, who will have two years of eligibility remaining, is expected to graduate this spring and enroll at Wisconsin this summer. He joins Austin Hudson and Lubern Figaro as projected safeties in the current recruiting class.
The Badgers are set to graduate starter Dezmen Southward, but return Mike Caputo, Nate Hammon, Tanner McEvoy and Leo Musso, among others, at safety in 2014, though McEvoy is expected to work at quarterback this fall.
