Wisconsin football gains another class of 2024 commitment

The Wisconsin Badgers landed a commitment from class of 2024 long snapper Deed Capper on Monday. Capper is a senior at Homestead High School in Mequon, Wisconsin, and he’ll remain in his home state for college football.

Capper doesn’t carry an official star rating, but he has an abundance of football experience, playing defensive end, left tackle and long snapper in high school. He is considered a 4 1/2-star long snapper according to Kohl’s Professional Games, who consider him the 38th best at his position in his class.

With Peter Bowden, the Badgers long snapper from 2023, moving on to the NFL, the team has an opening at the position heading into the season and it’s possible Capper will compete for the role.

Capper joins a class of 2024 recruiting class that includes quarterback Mabrey Mettauer, offensive lineman Kevin Heywood and defensive lineman Ernest Willor Jr. among others.
