The Wisconsin Badgers decided to extend an offer to a three-star cornerback in the 2014 class from Fort Lauderdale, Florida yesterday in Deion Hallmon. One of the top 50 cornerbacks in the country, Hamilton is looking for an offer from the big school in the region in the Miami Hurricanes, and it will be interesting to see if Miami makes his wish come true.
Hallmon currently holds offers from Wisconsin, the Clemson Tigers, Connecticut Huskies, East Carolina Pirates, Indiana Hoosiers, North Carolina State Wolfpack, Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Purdue Boilermakers, Syracuse Orange, Wake Forest Demon Deacons, Washington State Cougars, and Temple Owls. With other major programs interested in Hallmon, he should continue to see the offers pour in, with the most important potential offer being Miami.
Ranked by the 247Composite as the 508th-best recruit overall, Hallmon is one of the best 75 prospects in the talent-rich state of Florida. Wisconsin’s offer is the third major one this month for Hallmon, as both East Carolina and Syracuse extended offers to him in May- and in that chronological order.
Wisconsin has now offered ten uncommitted CB prospects in the 2014 class, and 247Sports lists Deion Hallmon as a “high choice” prospect for the Badgers. Their top target in this class is top 250 recruit Troy Vincent, who has a name reminiscent of a former star NFL DB. Vincent, who hails from Baltimore and is one of the top 25 CBs in the class, is interested in Wisconsin and is, in fact, Troy Vincent’s son. Wisconsin seems to love sons of former star NFL DBs who play the same position as their fathers, as they recently offered Al Harris (Friday, our piece on him is here). Harris, by the way, also stars in Fort Lauderdale as a corner for the legendary St. Thomas Aquinas.
