Yancey enjoys Wisconsin spring game

Wisconsin attracted a number of prospects to their spring game in Madison on Saturday. St. John (Ind.) Lake Central three-star running back David Yancey was among those who in attendance on Saturday.
"I really liked it, liked how they are updating their facilities," Yancey said. "I really liked their spring game - it was very high intensity. I talked to one of their signees, Reggie [Mitchell], for a long time and he was telling me how good the Wisconsin football program is."
The 5-foot-11, 200-pound Yancey holds six offers, but is still waiting on his first from a BCS program. He received positive feedback from the Wisconsin coaches on that front during his visit to Madison.
"I talked to Coach [Thomas] Hammock and Coach [Eddie] Faulkner," Yancey said. "They both are very high on me and loved my highlight tape, but they have few scholarships to hand out this year so they said they will be offering a lot of people at their one-day camps."
Yancey has been to several college campuses this spring. Prior to the Wisconsin visit, he was at Minnesota for the Gophers spring game on April 21.
"I really liked that visit and they treated me well there," Yancey said. "Then, they actually visited this past week and saw me work out during school. They said all the coaches are out recruiting right now, but when they come back in from recruiting they will sit down and watch my film one more time and talk about a potential offer."
Yancey's six scholarship offers have come from Ball State, Bowling Green, Butler, Central Michigan, Western Kentucky and Wyoming. Several more schools are showing strong interest and want to see him at their camps this summer.
"Tennessee has also come up to my school. Iowa State has called," Yancey reported. "I think all the schools are showing equal interest so far and I'm wide open. I'm not that close to committing."
Yancey plans to take the month of May off from visiting college campuses, then has an ambitious summer camp schedule that tentatively includes Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Florida, Minnesota, Purdue, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa State and Kentucky.
"That's not my final list," Yancey noted. "I'm going to wait until the end of the Spring Evaluation Period just to see who calls me and if there are any pop-up visits. It could expand."
