SAN ANTONIO, Texas – 247Sports top-ranked offensive tackle Logan Brown literally looked the part upon arrival for the All-American Bowl on Monday.
The Wisconsin commit checked in at 6-foot-6, 307-pounds with the longest wingspan at the event with 37.5 inch arms. The No. 5 prospect regardless of position is ready to see how he stacks up with the nation’s best down here in the Lone Star State. Practice begins on Tuesday in preparation for Saturday’s game to be aired at 1 p.m. EST on NBC.
“That’s one of the big reasons I wanted to come down here, to show everyone what I can do and see what I can do against these other great athletes here.”
Brown committed to the Badgers in November of 2017 after watching the Badgers beat Michigan with ESPN’s College Game Day in town.
“The atmosphere that day was just amazing,” Brown said.
But Brown was all in way before that.
“I wanted to commit to Wisconsin my freshman year,” Brown said. “My parents told me to wait. I went to camp and that’s when they offered me. My parents told me to wait, don’t jump the gun, wait for others schools.”
The other schools came including Alabama, Florida, Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State and Virginia Tech were among the other programs to extend a scholarship.
“No other school ever compared to the relationship and how I felt about Wisconsin,” Brown said.
“A lot of it was the people. When I say people, I mean the education staff, tutors, coaching staff, people in the city, it’s not all 100 percent football. It’s more than football.”
Brown is pleased with his development to date. He looks forward to learning at the All-American Bowl before getting to Madison where he knows the Badgers staff will get it out of him.
“I’m excited to get up there with the guys in the class,” Brown said. “We have a great relationship.”
