A position that Wisconsin is still trying to sure up in its 2014 class is at middle linebacker. The top linebacker target for the Badgers is Berkeley (CA) senior Michael Lazarus and after talking to Wisconsin defensive coordinator Dave Aranda Sunday night, he has officially set a visit to Madison.
"I have set my official visit to Wisconsin for November 15th for the Indiana game," Lazarus told BadgerNation. "I talked with Coach Aranda tonight, but he mostly talked to my mother. I only set up the beginning parts of the conversation via Facebook."
While the 6-2, 215-pound linebacker - the No. 13 nationally ranked middle linebacker in the nation according to Fox Sports Next - isn't in a rush to make a decision, Lazarus is very eager to experience what Wisconsin has to offer.
"I'm pretty excited to visit Wisconsin," said Lazarus. "I can't wait to see the atmosphere out there and the facilities and players. There is no telling what my decision will be like and we will have to see how it goes at Wisconsin."
The main man at the reins in Lazarus's recruitment for the Badgers is Aranda and is a reason Wisconsin has been moving for the talented California star.
"I like Coach Aranda," said Lazarus. "He is very down to earth type of guy and a very respectable coach. I can't wait to get out there and (cheer) ‘Go Badgers!'"
