We all know the world of college football recruiting keeps getting more ridiculous by the year, but you can bet the Wisconsin Badgers arenâ€™t going to go as crazy as the rest of the folks in the CFB world. After all, UW isnâ€™t offering 8th grad prospects (thanks LSU).
However, Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst isnâ€™t afraid to pull the trigger on an offer to a freshman in high school apparently.
On Tuesday, Badger247â€™s Evan Flood reported that UW has offered 2018 safetyÂ Anthony LyttonÂ out of Upper Marlboro (Md.) Wise high school.
Just how quick were the Badgers to identify the freshmanâ€™s talents? They are the first program to offer him a scholarship.
Lytton is a 5-11, 170-pound safety and watching the film out there on him, itâ€™s easy to see why the Badgers have offered after just one season in high school football.
The tape shows a kid with great awareness, vision and most importantly for a safety â€” RANGE. Most impressive is the ability to see him stick out immediately on the tape without having a highlight put on him.
While the Badgers were the first to pull the trigger on an offer for Lytton, you can bet they arenâ€™t going to be alone on the offer list for long. He is definitely one player to keep an eye out for in the future.
