Badgers beat Big Ten rivals for 3-star safety Austin Brown in 2022 recruiting class

A collection of the most interesting quotes and thoughts from Badgers players and coaches during spring practices.

After being among the first official visitors at the University of Wisconsin in June, three-star safety Austin Brown tweeted his oral commitment to the Badgers on Sunday.

Brown — who hails from Johnston City, Illinois, a small town outside of Carbondale — was considering offers from Boston College, Illinois, Michigan and Northwestern before choosing UW. The consensus three-star prospect had 21 known scholarship offers.

Winning the battle for Brown over in-state options like Illinois and Northwestern — especially considering the recruiting momentum new Illini coach Bret Bielema has built and the Wildcats coming off a Big Ten West title — is a boon for UW.

At 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, he has a good frame already and his high school film shows a willingness to lay big hits and attack blockers. He also plays quarterback for Johnston City.

Safety was a need in the 2022 class as the Badgers have five players at the position who could move on after this season.
