MADISON - After participating in a media event at the Florida Citrus Bowl Thursday morning, Wisconsin head coach Gary Andersen met up with defensive backs coach Bill Busch for an in-home visit with Eastern Arizona College athlete Serge Trezy in his hometown of Orlando.

The 6-1, 190-pound defensive back made it a worthwhile trip, giving the Wisconsin coaches his verbal commitment to become the 25th verbal commitment in the Badgers’ 2014 recruiting class.

"I feel like Wisconsin is the place for me to be and it feels good to be a Badger," Trezy told BadgerNation. "The in-home visit went really well. That is when I decided to commit to Wisconsin."

Trezy picked Wisconsin over Cincinnati, his other favorite, and offers from Ball State, Baylor, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Iowa State, Memphis, Washington State and others. Trezy will be a return specialist and a defensive back for the Badgers.

Trezy adds a huge element of speed for Wisconsin, as he has been clocked running a 4.29 40-yard dash. He took an official visit to Wisconsin for the regular season finale against Penn State.

"We have a good group of guys committed to Wisconsin," he said, "and glad to be a part of this class."

Trezy, originally from Orlando, was originally at Hutchinson (KS) Community College but moved to Eastern Arizona before the start of the season. He played defensive end and ran back kicks during his freshman season.

Trezy rushed for 814 yards and averaged 7.8 yards per carry at tailback this past season, scoring six touchdowns, and he had more than 1,300 yards all-purpose with his return totals. He earned all-conference honors.

"I will be playing safety at Wisconsin and they said they can use me anywhere on the field," he said.

Trezy will enroll in the summer.
