Wisconsin class of 2025 commit surprisingly flips to rival Minnesota

Wisconsin football class of 2025 commit Torin Pettaway decommitted from the Badgers and flipped to bitter rival Minnesota on Thursday night.

The in-state defensive lineman committed to join the Badgers on March 7. His change of heart and move to rival Minnesota seems to have taken many in the industry by surprise.

Pettaway is the No. 653 player in the class of 2025, the No. 63 defensive lineman and the No. 5 recruit from the state of Wisconsin.

His decommitment leaves Wisconsin’s class of 2025 with eight  commitments. The group also fell to No. 11 nationally with the news.

The 6-foot-5, 265-pound athlete and junior at Middleton High School will be yet another in-state recruit to commit to play elsewhere — a troubling trend under both former coach Paul Chryst and current coach Luke Fickell.
