Hinsdale (Ill.) Central junior Brian Allen is routinely the first recruit to make it to campus for unofficial visits. That was good news for Wisconsin, which often receives high marks for its college campus and atmosphere.

“It’s always fun coming up to Madison. I really like it here,” said Allen, who was making his second visit to Wisconsin. “It was a good atmosphere. At first it was kind of slow, but a couple series in there wasn’t a seat open. Everyone walked in and was on their feet. By the end of the game I couldn’t sit down.”

Although it was his second visit to Wisconsin, it was his first chance walking around town and checking the school and town out. Allen and his family grabbed lunch on State Street, and they were surprised at how many fans were already hanging out.
