Wisconsin went on an impressive run a few weeks ago by landing a string of players directly after their official visit to the school.
The run made sense, as June 1 marked the end of the NCAA dead period and allowed players to take official visits before announcing their commitments.
One uncommitted player who visited Madison is linebacker Sebastian Cheeks. Well the class of 2022 four-star recruit tweeted today that he will announce his commitment on July 28 at 4 p.m.
Cheeks is 247Sports’ No. 131 player in the class of 2022, No. 13 linebacker and No. 4 recruit from his home state of Illinois.
247Sports Recruiting analyst Allen Trieu explains that five schools received visits from the linebacker: Wisconsin, Texas, North Carolina, Oregon and Michigan. He wrote today that those schools are believed to be ‘in the running’ to land a commitment.
For what it’s worth, there are two current crystal ball predictions for Cheeks to choose North Carolina and one for him to choose Texas.
We will see eight days from now whether Wisconsin lands another big-time recruit in the class of 2022.
