Less than two weeks after Ohio State flipped Maryland safety Bryson Shaw from the University of Wisconsin, another 2019 prospect de-committed from the Badgers on Wednesday.
Hough (N.C.) High wide receiver Nolan Groulx, who committed to UW on Jan. 28, reopened his recruitment via Twitter.
"I would like to thank Coach (Ted) Gilmore, Coach (Paul) Chryst and Coach Saeed (Khalif) for all they have done for me," Groulx tweeted. "I wish all the other commits, that I have built a relationship with, the best of luck. At this time I am going to Decommit from the University of Wisconsin and open my recruitment back up. #GoBadgers"
The 6-foot, 185-pound Groulx is rated as a four-star prospect by 247sports and ESPN, while Rivals gives him three stars.
Unlike Shaw, who announced his intentions to play for Ohio State on April 28, Groulx did not immediately commit to another program. He reportedly has offers from South Carolina, West Virginia, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, NC State and others.
The departures of Groulx and Shaw leave the Badgers with seven commitments in its 2019 recruiting class — quarterback Graham Mertz, offensive linemen Logan Brown and Joe Tippmann, athletes Leo Chenal and Marcus Graham, tight end Hayden Rucci and running back Julius Davis.
