Zach Yousey closing in on Badgers offer

By Jared Shanker

Receiver Zach Yousey (Columbus, Ohio/Harvest Prep) is still looking for his first BCS offer, but following his most recent visit he feels that could change soon.

Yousey made it back to Wisconsin for a visit this weekend, and after talking with the coaches there is a good chance an offer will come his way, Yousey said.

“They just said be patient but they said the hopes for offering is very high,” Yousey said.

This summer, Yousey made it up to Madison to work out for the Badgers and checked out the program. Wisconsin is still looking at Yousey’s grades before making a decision on offering.

Yousey has seven offers, but Toledo is his No. 1 school followed by Bowling Green. He will see Bowling Green twice over the next few weeks as he’ll watch the Falcons play in Columbus Nov. 23 and then make an official visit to the campus Dec. 7.

Toledo will host Yousey for a visit the weekend of Nov. 30.
