Wisconsin lands pledge from DE out of New Jersey
A defensive end from the East Coast is headed to Wisconsin.
On Wednesday, the Badgers landed a verbal commitment from three-star strong-side defensive end Mike Jarvis. He became the 13th player of the 2021 recruiting cycle to pledge to Wisconsin. 247Sports reported the news of the commitment.
Jarvis had virtually visited with the Wisconsin staff last week.
Jarvis is listed as a 6-foot-5, 250-pound defensive end out of Medford, New Jersey. He ranks as the No. 81 strong-side defensive end in the class and the No. 29 player out of his home state.
Several programs offered Jarvis on the recruiting trail. In addition to Wisconsin, he received interest from Duke, Florida State, Indiana, Nebraska, Rutgers, Syracuse, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Wake Forest.
With Jarvis committing to Wisconsin, the Badgers now own the 17th-ranked class in 2021. They sit sixth in the B1G.
