Already a strong suit for the Badgers, Deal adds to an already stacked running backs corps.
The 2013 Maryland Gatorade Player of the Year, Deal committed to Wisconsin back in June of last year and never wavered from that. Deal was also pursued by Purdue, Michigan State, Virginia Tech and Syracuse among others.
Ranked the 25th overall running back and 10th overall player out of the state of Maryland, Deal will bring a lot to the Badgers offense in the future. Although he will have to sit behind Melvin Gordon and Corey Clement for the time being, look for Deal to make an impact once he is given the opportunity.
Deal unofficially marks the beginning of what should be a very fun and exciting National Signing Day for the Wisconsin Badgers. Keep it here to Badger of Honor for all the breaking news and analysis on this glorious college football holiday.
