Former Wisconsin QB Commit Addresses His "Nightmare" Situation

The quarterback recruit appeared to have his scholarship offer pulled from the Badgers.

Ben Bryant, a quarterback recruit in the 2018 class, tweeted on Thursday that he had received a scholarship offer from the University of Georgia. The pro-style quarterback out of Illinois was committed to Wisconsin.

A day after tweeting about his offer from the Bulldogs, Bryant tweeted that the Badgers had pulled his scholarship offer.

Late Saturday night, Bryant explained what happened.

"My dream of becoming a Badger turned into a nightmare on Friday," he wrote. "This was literally one of the worst days of my life."

Tweeting about a new scholarship offer is extremely common for recruits, even ones that are committed somewhere else.

Bryant, a three-star recruit per 247Sports' Composite Rankings, says he had no intention of considering flipping to the Bulldogs or even visiting Georgia and wanted to stay a Badger.

Wisconsin's coaching staff seems to have some explaining to do.
