Visalia (Calif.) College of the Sequoias quarterback Brent Schaeffer made a trip to Big Ten country this past weekend with an official visit to Wisconsin.
"It went good," Schaeffer said. "I got to talk a lot of football with the coaches. I really liked the strength coach. I met a lot of players. And they have nice facilities."
While in Madison, Schaeffer's player host was Wisconsin freshman linebacker Elijah Hodge.
"We talked about how everything is going there," Schaeffer said. "He said it's going good for him. He's anxious to get on the field."
When asked what he liked most about his visit to Wisconsin, Schaeffer said, "I liked the coaches. I really like coach Bielema. I've known him since my sophomore year at Deerfield Beach (Fla.) High School. I get along with him real well.
"He talked about the opportunity at Wisconsin and what he's trying to do. He said they're going to try to win the Big Ten and national championship next year."
Schaeffer has now made official visits to Wisconsin and North Carolina State.
"I go to Ole Miss Jan. 14," he said. "And I'll visit Florida sometime in January, probably the week after Ole Miss.
"As of right now that's my four. I think I'll take all four visits before I decide."
When asked who his favorite is, Schaeffer said, "I don't have one right now. I'd say North Carolina State, Wisconsin, and Florida are my top ones."
The 6-foot-2 and 190 pound Schaeffer, a five star quarterback in the Rivals.com player rankings and the No. 3 junior college prospect, will have three years to play two seasons at his new college.
Schaeffer threw for 2976 yards this season for the College of the Sequoias. He connected for 40 touchdowns with just six interceptions. Schaeffer also rushed for 854 yards and 10 touchdowns.
