Wisconsin football recruiting: 4-star OT Jon Dietzen commits to Badgers

The Wisconsin Badgers are known for their ability to crank out a top notch running game behind elite offensive lineman.

The Badgers believe they added to that reputation on Sunday when they got a commitment from 4-star offensive lineman Jon Dietzen.

The 6’5, 330-pounder is from Seymour, Wisconsin and attends Seymour High School.  Dietzen is ranked as the country’s 31st-best offensive tackle prospect, the best overall prospect in the state of Wisconsin and the 272nd-best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Dietzen decided to remain in-state despite offers from several big-time programs, including the Illinois Illini, Iowa State Cyclones, Miami Hurricanes and Michigan State Spartans, among others.

Dietzen becomes the fourth class of 2015 prospect to give their pledge to the Badgers. He joins 3-star tight end Kyle Penniston of Mater Dei (Santa Ana, CA), 3-star dual threat quarterback Austin Kafentzis of Jordan (Sandy, UT) and 3-star wide receiver Andrew James of Westminster Academy (Fort Lauderdale, FL).
