Madison, Wis. During a recent prospect camp held at the University of Wisconsin, the Wisconsin football staff watched as a certain recruit dazzled.

Tre Poteat, a 2025 in-state recruit from Verona, Wisconsin, is one of the top players from the area in the 2025 class. Poteat already has 20 scholarship offers from programs like Michigan, Minnesota, Virginia Tech, and Kansas. The corner back has already visited campus twice and attended another camp as well. Poteat is currently the fifth ranked player in the state in his class and has held an offer from the Badgers for over a year.

Wisconsin Badgers Eyeing In-State Corner Back Following Standout Performance

Coming in at 6-feet, 170-pounds, Poteat is a do-it-all defensive back with excellent field vision. This past season as a Sophomore, Poteat recorded 62 tackles, two forced fumbles, three interceptions, four pass break-ups, and two touchdowns. Poteat is also an accomplished returner and scored one of his touchdowns on a kickoff return. The corner back also earned All Conference, All Region, and All Area honors.

What makes Poteat such an amazing player is his lethal speed and field vision. Poteat has incredible physical skills despite being a bit undersized and he understands how to use his body when he plays. Poteat can shift and thread his way around blockers to find the ball carrier in the open field. When he is playing in coverage, Poteat has a great feel for where the ball is going to go and often jumps the route to make an aerial play.

While Poteat has incredible speed and vision, they are not his only positive attributes. Poteat also has a great feel for where he should position himself in coverage. The corner back is often moving towards where the play is going and he rarely finds himself out of position. The talented recruit also utilized his skills in the return game as he sliced through the defense countless times. Poteat has an exceptional cutting ability and utilizes an array of moves to defeat his defenders. With his ability in all aspects of football, the corner back could potentially take special teams and offensive snaps.

Four-Star Corner Back Tre Poteat: “Had A Great Time Competing”

Recently, the corner back visited the Wisconsin football staff and competed against a select group of 2025 recruits in one-on-one drills. Poteat shined and opened the eyes of head coach Luke Fickell and defensive coordinator Mike Tressel with his play. Poteat stated afterwards via Twitter that he “…had a great time competing and getting some great work…” during his visit. The corner back played well and enjoyed his visit, which truly bodes well for the Wisconsin football staff.

The Wisconsin football staff has eagerly recruited the 2025 class. Despite struggles with the 2024 class, Wisconsin will continue to recruit the players they feel fit the best. Not only is Poteat a great fit, but also a great homegrown player.
