On Friday morning, the Wisconsin Badgers got some good news.
Three-star cornerback Derrick Tindal switched his commitment from the Indiana Hoosiers to the Badgers.
“He’s a Badger,” Tindal’s head coach, Wayne Blair told Evan Flood of Badger247. “I’m just proud of the kid. He’s got good man coverage capabilities. He’s an overall good ball player.”
The 5-11, 160-pound Tindal committed to Indiana back at beginning of this month after he visited the Hoosiers in early December. Tindal picked up an offer from the Badgers a week later and decided to take a visit to Madison, Wisconsin last weekend. A few days later, Badgers’ head coach Gary Anderson, along with two assistants, wide receivers’ coach Chris Beatty and defensive coordinator and linebackers’ coach Dave Aranda.
That was apparently all of the convincing that Tindal needed.
Tindal, who attends Boyd Anderson High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida is considered the 112th best cornerback, 195th best player in Florida and the 1,389th best overall player in the class of 2014, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
He chose Wisconsin over Indiana and the Cincinnati Bearcats, among others.
