The rivalry between the Badgers and the Irish didn’t get a chance to see the field last season, their game was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but their other battles off the field still are happening. With a report from Adam Gorney of Rivals, Wisconsin offensive lineman Carson Hinzman might not be a lock to the Badgers that many have thought.

Gorney suggests that the planned visits to Ohio State, Iowa and the Irish have now put a wrench into the Badgers locking up one of the best prospects in their backyard.

Hinzman could still very well end up with the Badgers like many other elite offensive lineman from the state, but saying no to the Buckeyes and the Irish among other is easier said than done. – Gorney

The six-foot-five-inch and 280-pound lineman is being courted by some of the best Midwest programs, putting thoughts into Hinzman’s head that could ultimately lure him away from his home state.

The early signing period is rapidly approaching and the Irish currently have 13 commits, two of them being offensive lineman. Brian Kelly would love to add Hinzman to the group and is seems like they currently have a fight chance to gain his commitment in the near future.
