Alabi Likes Wisconsin Defense

Alabi Likes Wisconsin Defense

Detroit Cass Tech (Mich.) junior defensive end Joshua Alabi can see himself in Wisconsin's 3-4. He recaps his visit to Madison here.

Several of Cass Tech's recruits spent the weekend in Madison including defensive end Joshua Alabi, who holds an offer from the Badgers.

"Wisconsin was really good," the 6-foot-5, 270-pound junior said. "I talked to the coaches and players and had a good time watching the [basketball] game."

Alabi says he found the town itself to be welcoming.

"It's a great place. I love the campus. It's very clean, a good environment and the people around there are like family."

A starter for Cass since his sophomore season, Alabi has played both defensive end and offensive tackle for the Technicians. Some schools see him on the offensive side of the ball, but he likes how Wisconsin would like to use him.

"They're talking defense and they run a 3-4 and I like that. They have two ends and one nose and they said I can fit in because I'm versatile. I can play end and defensive tackle."

Alabi has additional offers from Michigan State, Ohio State, Michigan, Tennessee, Penn State and more, and says the Badgers are in high consideration as he moves through his process.

"They're in the Big Ten so the school definitely compares very well with the other schools on my list."
