An offer from Georgia led to 3-star quarterback Ben Bryant changing his commitment status — and it wasn’t by his decision. After Bryant tweeted that he had received an offer from the Bulldogs on Thursday, he re-opened his recruitment a day later, after previously being committed to Wisconsin.
On Saturday, after previously tweeting that he would not be doing interviews, Bryant tweeted out the story behind no longer being committed to the Badgers, and how the events unfolded after he announced his offer from Georgia.
Bryant, a Class of 2018 recruit from La Grange, Ill., said he was informed he was “no longer a good fit” for Wisconsin by Badgers coach Jon Budmayr after Bryant had announced his Georgia offer.
A Georgia coach had reached out to Bryant via text, according to Bryant, and the Bulldogs had set up several visits for him. However, Bryant said he never had any intent of visiting UGA or committing to the Bulldogs, he just appreciated the attention and “felt complimented.”
Bryant informed Budmayr of the offer, then received a call from the Badgers coach that led to the re-opening of his recruitment, per Bryant’s telling of how the events transpired.
