For the second time in less than a week, the Wisconsin Badgers received a commitment from an offensive lineman.
After landing Seymour High School standout Jon Dietzen just last Sunday, the Badgers received an oral commitment from David Moorman, an offensive tackle from Pinckney, Michigan.
“Proud to announce that I have decided to commit to play football at the University of Wisconsin! Couldn’t be more excited to be a badger,” the 6-foot-5, 275-pound Moorman tweeted early Wednesday afternoon.
Aside from UW, he also received offers from several other schools, according to 247sports. This list includes Minnesota, Illinois, Cincinnati, Ohio, Central Michigan, Western Michigan, Northern Illinois, and Eastern Michigan. While Moorman didn’t receive scholarship offers, he did receive interest from several other big-name schools like Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Tennessee as well.
It was another solid commitment for head coach Gary Andersen and his staff, who continue to look to build a staunch offensive line for the future. Not only would this help the Badgers continue their tradition of boasting a formidable running game year in and year out, but it will also aid Andersen in fulfilling his plan to add a dual-threat quarterback to the Wisconsin offense.
Moorman is UW’s fifth commitment for 2015, joining Dietzen, quarterback Austin Kafentzis, wide receiver Andrew James, and tight end Kyle Penniston.
Like Dietzen, Moorman is a four-star recruit who will look to join the lineage of great offensive linemen to take the field at Camp Randall Stadium.
