The Wisconsin football program added its sixth commitment in the 2025 recruiting cycle on Saturday, as four-star ATH/DB Jaimier Scott announced his commitment to the Badgers.

The Ohio native took to social media to make it official.

Here’s a look at the newest addition to the 2025 class and what stands out. 

Wisconsin Football Commit Jaimier Scott: On the Recruiting Trail

According to the industry-generated composite rankings, Scott is the No. 326 player in the nation, the No. 20 ATH, and the No. 12 player in Ohio. 

Wisconsin was the fourth school to offer Scott near the beginning of his recruitment, extending a scholarship in December of 2022. The four-star prospect earned a total of 23 offers prior to his commitment, with several other Big Ten schools in the mix, like Michigan, Penn State, Indiana, Illinois, and Purdue, throwing their hats in the ring along with loads of other schools. 

UW brought Scott in for a junior day visit from January 12-14, and the staff was able to secure the commitment shortly after. In the end, the Badgers were able to beat out Scott’s other finalists, Michigan, Tennessee, and Penn State. 

Scott is now the third defensive back to announce his commitment to the Wisconsin football program, joining Remington Moss and Cody Haddad.

Wisconsin Football Commit Jaimier Scott: Scouting Report

Scott just wrapped up his junior season at Mt Healthy High School, earning some reps at defensive back and wide receiver. The four-star prospect recorded 53 tackles, eight pass breakups, and two interceptions on defense while also logging 817 total yards and eight touchdowns on offense. 

With his experience on both sides of the ball, Scott has a leg up in coverage due to his knowledge of what receivers might do in terms of footwork or route running. He already possesses the speed to keep up with opposing receivers, but ball skills really elevate his play, as he shows great anticipation to pair with good hands to reel in passes. 

Scott’s speed doesn’t just help in coverage; it allows him to play the run much more effectively. The four-star prospect has a quick burst with an excellent ability to diagnose run plays, and he closes out on opposing ball carries in a hurry. 

The Mt Healthy High School standout will provide some nice versatility for the Badgers, with the ability to slot in at safety or even a boundary corner if needed. While he takes a bulk of his reps at safety, he holds all of the attributes and some experience to be a contributor if his number is called. 

Scott’s tackling ability doesn’t jump out on film, but he’s well-rounded in that aspect. His closing speed helps with his physicality at the point of contact, and he knows that the low-man wins, often meeting defenders at their knees or below. He has a few textbook open-field tackles in his junior tape and some big hits, so he shows a lot of promise as a tackler. 

At 6-foot-1, 177 pounds, Scott already has good size for the position, but he will benefit from a college strength and conditioning program. If he can carry some more weight comfortably, he could be a bruiser at the safety position. 

With Scott’s commitment, the Wisconsin Badgers football program now holds the No. 9 class in the 2025 recruiting cycle, per the 247Sports rankings.
