Madison, Wis. – Luke Fickell and the Wisconsin football program stayed hot on the recruiting trail and added another intriguing defensive talent to the 2024 recruiting class on Thursday morning. 

After picking up an offer in February and visiting Madison earlier this month, three-star safety Kahmir Prescott out of Philadelphia, Pennslyvania, announced his commitment to the Badgers over the likes of Michigan State, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, and Penn State. 

According to the 247Sports composite rankings, Prescott, a 6-foot-1, 190-pounder, is the No. 625 player in the 2024 cycle, the No. 60 safety in the country, and the No. 19 player in Pennslyvania. 

From what I’ve been told, Badgers new safeties coach Colin Hitschler worked his ass off to earn Prescott’s commitment, which is his first as a lead recruiter for the Wisconsin football program.  

As a junior at Northeast High School, Prescott registered 35 tackles, six pass deflections, four interceptions, three TFLs, and a sack, according to MaxPreps.

Scouting Report

Kahmir Prescott is an addition to the 2024 recruiting class that genuinely excites me. Given UW’s desire to play a lot of three-safety looks, landing premium athletes and stockpiling that room is a high priority. 

Prescott is a plus athlete that has impressive play recognition ability and the ball skills to pair with it that could make him a playmaker on the back end for the Wisconsin football program down the road. 

Because of his closing speed, versatility in coverage, and fluid hips, he could be an ideal candidate to focus on becoming more of a centerfielder that coach Tressel can move around his formation.

It’s also worth mentioning that Prescott hits a lot harder than I’d typically expect from someone with his lanky frame.

There is a lot to like about this pickup, and beating out so many other Big Ten programs feels like a big win for the Wisconsin coaching staff. 

The Impact of Kahmir Prescott Joining the Wisconsin Football Program 

Kahmir Prescott is commitment No. 8 for the Wisconsin football program in the 2024 recruiting cycle, joining Mabrey Mettauer, Grant Stec, Robert Booker, Derek Jensen, Thomas Heiberger, Landon Gauthier, and Kyan Berry-Johnson.

With his addition, UW now has the No. 21 recruiting class in the country, per 247Sports.
