A big day for Wisconsin Badgers recruiting just got bigger, as standout lineman Rodas Johnson announced on Tuesday night that he committed to UW.
Though 247Sports lists Johnson as a defensive tackle, Rivals and ESPN list him as an offensive guard. BadgerBlitz.com’s Jon McNamara called the Columbus, Ohio (St. Francis De Sales) standout a defensive tackle.
According to 247Sports, Johnson held 27 offers from some elite programs, including Wisconsin, Penn State, Texas, Duke, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State, and Notre Dame, among others.
