Wisconsin hosted several 2025 prospects on Saturday. One of those prospects, Jackson Accuardi, was in attendance for his second time on campus.
Jackson Accuardi Recaps Recent Wisconsin Football Visit
“The visit was great,” Accuardi told BadgerNotes. “I thought what stood out to me the most was the energy the staff brought to the whole thing.”
During his visit, the three-star tight end continued to build relationships with UW’s coaching staff, specifically Nate Letton, who has kept in contact with Accuardi early in his recruitment.
“(Our relationship) is pretty good. I talk with them roughly once a week,” Accuardi said. “Usually, I’m in touch with coach Letton or Max Steinecker.”
Wisconsin football hasn’t extended an offer to Accuardi yet, but the staff has kept tabs on him as he’s progressed through his junior year.
“I talked to coach Letton before and after the game. We caught up and talked about my season,” Accuardi explained. “He said he wants to keep doing his research on me and me to keep doing research on (Wisconsin). I also talked to their assistant tight ends coach before and after the game.”
The DeForest native is just about 15 minutes away from Madison. With the proximity to the stadium, Accuardi has been surrounded by Badgers fans, so he’s had his eye on UW for some time.
“I’ve always had an interest in Wisconsin,” Accuardi told BadgerNotes.
According to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite, Accuardi is the No. 539 player in the nation, the No. 25 tight end, and the No. 7 player in Wisconsin.
Accuardi has had a solid start to his junior season. According to MaxPreps, the DeForest native has logged five receptions for 76 yards and two touchdowns.
What’s Next for Jackson Accuardi?
The three-star prospect has garnered some power-five interest early on in his recruitment, holding five total offers with several other teams showing interest.
“Right now, it’s Iowa State, Duke, Louisville, Nebraska, Vanderbilt, and some others,” Accuardi explained when asked which schools he’s hearing from the most.
Accuardi is taking his recruitment day by day and evaluating his options. However, he did mention that he hopes to make it back to Madison & visit Wisconsin football coaches down the road.
“I don’t have any (visits) lined up right now, but I’m hoping to come back once or twice more this season,” Accuardi said.
He’s in no rush to make a decision, but he did note that a school’s culture will be one of the deciding factors in his recruitment.
“I think the most important thing is the culture the team has. I want to go somewhere that has a chance to compete with the best of the best and have a great culture.”
