Fourth visit the charm for Green-May

Bolingbrook (Ill.) junior three star ranked defensive end/outside linebacker recruit Izayah Green-May (6-foot-5, 205 pounds) made his fourth unofficial visit to Wisconsin on Saturday and gave the Badgers his verbal commitment. Green-May fills us in on his decision here.

"I already had planned to commit to Wisconsin on Saturday," Green-May said. "I pretty much knew I was solid on Wisconsin after my third visit a few weeks ago. Once I was on campus again on Saturday the visit just confirmed my feelings about Wisconsin."

So why commit to the Wisconsin Badgers?

"Wisconsin is just a great place. From the football programs to the academics along with the whole atmosphere and fan support, Wisconsin just offers everything I was looking for in a school. I had some great visits to Wisconsin and I get along great with the coaches and the players. On Saturday I had a chance to talk to some of the players and they just filled me in on some of the day to day things at Wisconsin. Everyone was very honest and straight with me which I appreciated. I just feel at home at Wisconsin and my Mom and my family are totally on board with my decision."

Green-May also feel that he's a good match in the Badgers defense.

"Wisconsin recruited me as an outside linebacker but they also feel I can also play defensive end. They just feel I have the right body type and fit to play outside linebacker for them. I also get along great with outside linebacker coach (Tim) Tibesar."

So why make an early decision?

"I wanted to commit early for a long time and that was always in the plans for me. Some of the schools wanted me to either wait or camp with them this summer and I just didn't want to wait. The hardest part of the process for me was just trying to keep in touch with the college coaches. It started to become hard to just make sure I was able to talk to them and I was just ready to commit. I can just focus on school and my team and my senior year."

Izayah Green-May is verbally committed to Wisconsin.
