Wisconsin adds DT to 2019 recruiting class

Wisconsin has added its 11th commitment in the Class of 2019.

Following his official visit to Madison this weekend, 3-star defensive tackle Gio Paez announced on Twitter he had committed to the Badgers.



The 6-foot-3, 285-pound Paez (Cornelius, N.C.) chose Wisconsin over 19 other offers, including those from Nebraska, North Carolina State, Kentucky and Texas A&M.

Ranked as the No. 66 defensive tackle in the country by the 247Sports Composite, Paez is the second defensive lineman to commit to the Badgers in the class, joining Keeanu Benton (Janesville, Wis.).

Paez is from the same high school as Nolan Groulx, a 3-star wide receiver that de-committed from the Badgers earlier this year and just committed to Wake Forest on Sunday.
