MADISON - Ocala (FL) Vanguard senior wide receiver Natrell Jamerson felt it was only a matter of time after he left his Wisconsin official visit that he would become a part of the Badgers' program. IN real time, it only took three days.
Jamerson became the 21st commit to Wisconsin's 2014 recruiting class Wednesday night after texting his news to BadgerNation.
"I decided to commit to Wisconsin due to the fact that it's a great school," said Jamerson. "The coaching staff is awesome and feel I will be a big impact on the team."
The 6-0, 175-pound Jamerson received his Badgers offer in late October after the Wisconsin coaching staff saw him have a breakout year. With Wisconsin losing senior wide receiver Jared Abbrederis following the season, Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen and wide receiver coach Chris Beatty made recruiting receivers a priority going forward.
After landing Wayne County (GA) Jesup receiver Krenwick Sanders and Hyattsville (MD) Dematha Catholic receiver Chris Jones, the Badgers were excited to add Jamerson because of his versatility and ability to fill in on special teams as a true freshman.
"I look forward to playing under coach Beatty and coach Andersen the most," Jamerson said. "I just really can't wait to be a Badger playing for Wisconsin."
Picking Wisconsin over offers from Florida International, Middle Tennessee, Old Dominion, Weber State and UAB, among others, Jamerson is the fourth commit from the state of Florida, joining quarterback D.J. Gillins, defensive end Rohan Blackwood and defensive back Austin Hudson, who plans to enroll early.
"I feel very comfortable at the school and the players made me feel at home," Jamerson said. "They have a great academic program."
