Badger Meet & Greet

Peter Konz Update

Wisconsin verbal commitment Peter Konz was in Madison on Saturday for an unofficial visit. The 6-foot-6, 290-pound, offensive lineman from Neenah, Wis., talked to Badger Nation about visiting with fellow recruits, watching a big win and getting the chance to meet some current Badgers.

"I had a great time on Saturday," Peter Konz told Badger Nation. "I went to the game with my mom and my neighbor. We found a place to park near the stadium and basically walked around the streets. It was cool to see all the red and white.

"We eventually made it over to the stadium where we were met by some of the football staff and they took us inside for lunch. I had to pay for the lunch because it wasn't my official visit.

"Everything was top notch. The tables all had Badger helmets as center pieces. I got a chance to see a lot of other recruits that are also verbally committed and there were a few others, most from in-state. "I got a chance to meet Curt Phillips from Tennessee. It was nice to meet the guy that I'm going to be blocking for in the future.

"After lunch, most of the recruits went on a tour of all the facilities but I didn't go. I've been on so many unofficial visits that I decided to straight to the field to watch pre-game. After pre-game we went up to our seats to watch the game.

"After the Badger win, we didn't get a chance to see the 5th quarter. We went down to the locker room and got a chance to here the end of Coach Bielema's talk to the players. After that I got a chance to meet Tyler Donovan and Luke Swan. I've got so much respect for those guys.

"I shook Tyler Donovan's hand and told him that I really respected the way he played. It was a great day and we definitely had a good time."

Look for Konz to be an extension in the recruiting department. Peter plans on being at as many home games as possible this year and he'll without a doubt talk to the uncommitted prospects that have the Badgers on their short list.

Konz has scheduled his official visit for the weekend of December 7th.
