Commitment Impact: Brandyn Lee

Commitment Impact: Brandyn Lee

The first true wide receiver in Wisconsin's 2015 recruiting class, West Hills (CA) Chaminade College Prep's Brandyn Lee comes from a winning program where he understands what it takes to win. BadgerNation examines the commitment impact.

Committed Over: Brandyn Lee committed to Wisconsin over offers from Fresno State, Nevada and Washington State. He also said he was hearing from Arizona, California, Colorado State, Harvard, Princeton, UCLA and Virginia.

Rated: Lee is currently not ranked by Scout.com, but is expected to be a three-star recruit at the next ranking update.

On Film: Lee was a big part of the Eagles state championship squad last year, one of the primary targets for now-Miami freshman Brad Kaaya. While Lee doesn't have elite speed, he's still got pretty good speed, and gets good separation. He is a very good blocker, which is an underrated aspect of his game, catches the ball well, runs very well in his routes and can fight off the jam. At about 6-0, 175, he's not the biggest receiver, but he's very effective. - National Recruiting Analyst Brandon Huffman.

Recruiting Impact: I had been told numerous times that Wisconsin was only going to take one wide receiver in the 2015 recruiting class, especially since the Badgers restocked with five receivers in 2014. That no longer appears to be the case, as Wisconsin will likely take one more receiver for '15.

Who are the likely candidates to be the second wide receiver? While no players appear close to committing or visiting UW, pay attention to De Soto (TX) High three-star Kevin Thomas (especially since his teammate Chris Orr has committed), Burke (VA) Lake Braddock Secondary three-star A.J. Alexander and Stafford (VA) Colonial Forge three-star Gary Jennings.

Quotable: "When I sat down and talked with Coach Andersen in his office, we talked about football and academics. After hearing that they are going to pass a lot more and I will be able to get a degree in one of the top business schools in the country, I committed."

Final Thought: These might not be four-star and five-star prospects Wisconsin is reeling in during the month of June, but the Badgers are getting players from winning programs who knows what it takes. Lee is a tough player who understands the little details of the position, which could bode well for him getting early playing time at Wisconsin.
