Wisconsin got better on the offensive line on Tuesday, courtesy of the state of Pennsylvania.

The Badgers landed a pair of commitments from the state, first from 4-star tackle Kevin Heywood and then from 3-star interior lineman Ryan Cory a bit later. The pair of verbal pledges marked the second and third commitments of the week so far for the Badgers, who also landed 3-star defensive lineman Hank Weber on Monday. They also added 3-star corner Vernon Woodward on Sunday.

Both Heywood and Cory were in Madison over the weekend for an official visit. Both had visits scheduled elsewhere throughout the rest of the month but decided to pull the trigger after seeing what coach Luke Fickell had to offer.

Heywood is a 6-foot-7, 290-pound tackle from Royersford (Pa.) Pope John Paul II. He ranks as the No. 266 recruit in the class by the industry-generated 247 Composite. He’s also the No. 5 recruit from the state of Pennsylvania and the No. 25 overall tackle in the class.

Heywood held scholarship offers from more than 20 other Power 5 programs, including 8 other Big Ten schools. He had visits set with Kentucky (June 9), Auburn (June 16), and USC (June 23) for the remainder of the month.

Cory is a 6-foot-4, 290-pound lineman from Gibsonia (Pa.) Pine-Richland. He’s a 3-star recruit in the 247 Composite and ranks as the No. 24 recruit in his home state and the No. 50 interior lineman in the class. He’s the No. 780 overall recruit in the 2024 cycle.

Pitt and Vanderbilt were set to receive official visits from him in the coming weeks. He also held offers from Maryland, Penn State, Oregon, Kentucky, Kansas State, and Cincinnati, among others.

The Badgers now hold 12 known commitments in their 2024 class. It’s a group that ranks No. 15 in the country. You can find Heywood’s highlight tape here, and Cory’s highlight tape here.
