Vercher is a Badger

Wisconsin has added possibly the last piece to their 2013 recruiting class in Fresno (Calif.) City College Safety Donnell Vercher.

The three-star safety gave his verbal commitment to the Badgers earlier this week and will sign with Wisconsin tomorrow.

"He committed," Fresno City College Head Coach Tony Caviglia told Badger247 Tuesday afternoon. "He had a relationship with the previous staff at Utah State. He had a number of different schools talking to him, but he had a great relationship with Dave Aranda."

Vercher, the nation's No. 10 ranked junior college safety, took his official visit to Madison this past weekend and chose Wisconsin over his other finalist Syracuse.

"He had a great visit," Caviglia explained. "The team was all business. Coach Gary Andersen is a serious football coach. He really liked the environment."

Vercher is the 21st known verbal commitment for Wisconsin in the class of 2013. Wisconsin's 2013 recruiting class now ranks No. 30 in the team 247sports recruiting rankings.
