Wisconsin Football Lands Mississippi State Transfer QB

Wisconsin football secures commitment from former Mississippi State QB Braedyn Locke

Wisconsin football added another quarterback on Tuesday afternoon.

Former Mississippi State quarterback Braedyn Locke took to Twitter to announce his commitment to UW.

Locke is the fourth 4-star QB the Badgers have landed in Luke Fickell’s tenure. The commitment from Locke adds another signal-caller to a packed QB room brimming with talent.

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound quarterback is a former four-star recruit out of Texas. He was the 383rd player in the 2022 class, the 22nd-ranked QB, and the 54th-ranked player in Texas.

The Texas native redshirted in his first year with Mississippi State after no game appearances. Although he didn’t play at Mississippi State, his high school play shows what Locke can provide the Badgers.

According to MaxPreps, Locke was a three-year varsity starter for Rockwall High School. In those years, the Texas native threw for 11,182 yards and 128 touchdowns while boasting a completion percentage of 62.7%. The gunslinger QB put up 3,600 yards and 36 touchdowns with a QB rating of 120.4 in his senior year.

Locke is a true gunslinging quarterback. He has excellent ball placement and the arm talent to excel in Phil Longo’s air raid-style offense. The redshirt freshman will join a loaded quarterback room and have plenty of time to develop into a potential future QB1.

With Locke now in the fold, the Badgers have secured four current or former four-star QBs. With commitments from Mabrey Mettauer, Nick Evers, Tanner Mordecai, and now Locke, the Badgers have a deep QB room with players who excel in different facets.

The addition of Locke is the first commitment of the day. According to reports from Badgers insiders, Luke Fickell is not done with what should be an exciting day in recruiting.
