  • 0

Linebacker Tyler Jansey on Friday became the first member of the University of Wisconsin football team’s 2023 recruiting class.

Jansey, a junior from Batavia High School in Batavia, Illinois, tweeted his commitment Friday afternoon.

The 6-foot-1, 225-pound inside linebacker is a three-star prospect according to 247Sports and Rivals. Rivals ranks him the 10th-best player in his class in Illinois. The Badgers were the only Power 5 conference team to offer Jansey a scholarship as of Friday.

He had 36 tackles and 5½ sacks in a six-game season as a sophomore and followed that up with 88 tackles and 16 tackles for loss in 11 games as a junior, according to MaxPreps. Jansey chose UW over offers from Eastern Illinois, Eastern Michigan, Toledo, Miami (Ohio) and others.
