Oswego (Ill.) three-star ranked defensive tackle prospect Alex Magee (6-foot-5, 270 pounds) was at the Minnesota/Wisconsin game last Saturday in Madison, and Magee talks about his game day experience at Wisconsin as well as his latest recruiting news.
"Wisconsin was good, it was a really nice day," Magee said. "I really had fun yesterday at the Wisconsin game."
Magee talks about his game day experience in Madison.
"Those Wisconsin fans are just crazy, and they were also a lot of fun as well. I got to Madison around noon, and the game was at 2PM so I was able to get down on the field for pre-game warmups. I also had a chance to talk with Coach (Barry) Alvarez and my recruiting coach Rob Ianello. After the game I was able to talk with the coaches and the players, and it was a really exciting atmosphere in the locker room. I also had a chance to check out some of the campus as well as the academic support facility. That was a really good presentation, because they talked about the average day for a football player at Wisconsin, and I was also impressed with the facilities in place to help you with your academics at Wisconsin."
"That defense (Wisconsin) is just intense on the field. I really like the way they play all out, and you can see the big difference between high school and college. Those are some large and very angry men playing out on that field."
"Overall, I was really impressed with everything at Wisconsin. From the stadium at Camp Randall to the indoor practice facility to the weight room as well as the academic support facilities, I was really glad that I made a visit to see a Badgers game."
Magee has set two official visits.
"I've set an official visit for Purdue on November 19th, and I've also set an official visit to Wisconsin on December 17th. I'm also looking pretty hard at Michigan State as well, and I haven't set any visit with them yet but I most likely will soon. I'm looking at Purdue, Wisconsin and Michigan State, those are my final three schools that I'm considering."
Now that his senior season is over with, does Magee miss being on the field?
"You know, when I was a sophomore the coaches used to tell us all about enjoying every day playing high school football because it goes way too fast. Back then I didn't listen to them because I thought I had all of the time in the world. Now? The coaches were right, and it went way too fast and I really miss being on the field with my teammates and the coaches. I guess I lucky because I won a ring last season (2003 Class 7A state title), but I really miss playing the most right now."
