Badgers add to their 2013 class

Heading into this weekend's official visit, Independence (Kan.) Community College Cornerback Tekeim Reynard had a good idea he'd leave a Badger.

Reynard committed to Wisconsin while on his official visit.

Those feelings held true as Reynard, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound defensive back gave his verbal commitment to Head Coach Gary Andersen and Wisconsin.

"I just committed to Wisconsin," Reynard reported to Badger247. "I just decided this was the right decision for me. From an academic standpoint, it's a great school. I'm excited about it and I'm ready to work."

Hailing from Greenbrier Christian Academy in Chesapeake, Va, Reynard chose Wisconsin over other offers from Colorado, Georgia Southern, and Kentucky.

In 2012 Reynard recorded 88 tackles (11.3 per game), five pass breakups, and two interceptions.

Hosted by a number of other Badgers this weekend, Reynard bonded well with his future teammates.

"After having a great talk with the coaching staff and players such as Reggie Mitchell and Dezmen Southward, they really told me how I could help the program, come in and be an impact player to elevate the defense."

Reynard spent just one season at Independence Community College and will have three years of eligibility remaining in Madison.
