The Badgers Summer Elite camp is always an interesting time as new offers and a lot of movement happens with Wisconsin recruiting. This year Wisconsin got two more commits for their 2013 class following th conclusion of camp, one name Badger fans should be familiar with and another from a city that's produced two of the most highly talked about recruits in the last two classes.

On Sunday the brother of 2012 freshman Vince Biegel, Hayden, committed and from Kenosha, the home of RB's Melvin Gordon and Vonte Jackson, athlete/wide receiver Jazz Peavy confirmed his offer and commitment to the Badgers.

As we've done with all the verbals, we'll break down what's known and what we've seen of the players, so let's go ahead and dive in to that.

Thoughts & Video: 

These are two of the more under the radar recruits that Wisconsin has gotten commits from, but that doesn't mean they aren't valuable at all. Biegel isn't nearly as highly rated as his brother and does need to put on weight.  However, that hasn't been an issue at all for O-Lineman at Wisconsin. Peavy is probably best suited at Wide Receiver, but he's a bit of a tweener and it will be interesting if they keep him there or move him to possibly the defensive side of the ball when all is said and done. 

For Peavy he really came out of nowhere at the NikeSPARQ camp in Illinois this spring, scoring the highest SPARQ rating (a sport specific rating that weighs each category) of 122.52 at that combine (7th best in the nation) and running a 4.50 40yd dash along with a 4.0 shuttle. His status does remind me a bit of a preferred walk-on in this previous class, Leo Musso, who topped the same camp in 2011 and got added to the Badger program because of that and a nice showing at the summer camp. The difference for Peavy is he's a bit more athletic and posses more in the way of a projection as a future star.  He's got "Wisconsin gem" written all over him.

With Biegel he may have some unfair comparisons to his older brother, who was a top recruit nationally, but it does help that he plays a completely different position. He's one athletic big man, but you've got to wonder if he puts the weight on towards 300lbs. how that would affect his ability to stay that athletic. He's an attacker and all the film I've seen on him shows that and his ability to sustain blocks. One area I see a need for him to work on is playing a little less upright.  When he comes out of his stance he has a tendency to get tall right away and at the next level defensive ends will just bowl you over because of that, luckily that's something that can be easily corrected by practice and great coaching by Mike Markuson.
