Wisconsin Football: 2025 Four-Star Recruit Recaps Campus Visit



Wisconsin Badgers football head coach Luke Fickell

Madison, Wis. – After a successful camp in Madison, a certain Wisconsin football four-star recruiting target sat down for a Badger Notes exclusive interview.

Tre Poteat, a 2025 four-star recruit from Wisconsin, recently impressed during a camp in Madison. Poteat excelled against talented competition after a successful Sophomore season. The corner back had the chance after his camp to answer a handful of questions regarding his visit and recruitment status.

Wisconsin Badgers 2025 Target Has Close Connection With Specific Staff Member

Poteat, a four-star corner back and the second overall recruit in the state for the 2025 class, is a major target for the Badgers. The corner back has been on the radar of the Wisconsin football staff due to his exceptional ability to make aerial plays. Poteat is also a strong tackler and great coverage corner back as well.

Following his visit, Poteat responded to a request for an interview and provided the quotes listed below.

Question #1: What Was Your Impression Of the Wisconsin Football Staff and Madison During the Visit?

Poteat: “I love the new staff, I have had a good relationship with coach [Paul] Haynes since the third grade.”

For the talented corner back, his closest connection on the Wisconsin football staff has been coach Paul Haynes. Poteat has learned from Haynes since he began playing football, and the idea of starting his collegiate career under his guidance seems possible.

Haynes spent time with head coach Luke Fickell when both coaches were a part of the Ohio State Buckeyes football staff. Haynes spent 2005-2011 with the Buckeyes. The former head coach Haynes brings over 25-years of experience to a staff full of proven coaches. Haynes has sent seven players to the NFL since 2013.

Question #2: What Was the Best Part of the Wisconsin Football Visit? 

Poteat: “[The] best part of the visit was just talking football with coach Haynes.”

Question #3: How Has the College Recruiting Process Been Thus Far?

Poteat: “My recruitment process has been really amazing so far, and I plan on taking some visits to different places this Fall.”

In the recruiting process for Poteat, the corner back has only visited Wisconsin and Northwestern so far. The recruit plans on venturing farther out this coming Fall and looking for schools in areas he has not been to before. Distance of the school does not seem to be a major deciding factor for Poteat at this time.

Question #4: What Do You Look for Most In a Coach, Program, or School?

Poteat: “I look for [an] environment that can get me better and teammates ready to compete everyday and push to get to the next level.”

One of the biggest points of emphasis for the recruit was the drive to make it to the “next level”. Making it to the NFL is quite the task for anyone. Although, Poteat has his sights set on becoming the best football player he can be. While the recruit may have the talent to make it there, a program and staff like the one Wisconsin football has created will be necessary.

Question #5: If You Could Change One Aspect of the Recruiting Process Thus Far, What Would You Change?

Poteat: “I don’t think I would change anything about my recruitment process so far, honestly it has been the best.”

Question #6: What Programs Have Been the Most Exciting or Interesting to Experience So Far?

Poteat: “Every program I have visited has been amazing since I get to see different locations.”

While the recruit has not fully expanded his horizons yet, it is a good thing that he has enjoyed the process thus far. The road ahead for Poteat in the recruiting process is still unclear.

Regardless, Poteat deserves a massive thanks from Badgers fans and I for taking time to speak about his recruitment.
