Wisconsin Football makes final selection for Massive 2025 DL Drayden Pavey

The Wisconsin football staff received some pleasant news today, as a physically massive recruit has narrowed down his list of schools.

Three-star 2025 Ohio defensive lineman Drayden Pavey recently announced that his top three schools are Indiana, Purdue and Wisconsin. Pavey is a monster of a defensive lineman and there aren’t many individuals he can’t move with ease. The recruit is currently scheduled to visit Madison this weekend to meet with the Wisconsin football staff.

After much consideration, the Wisconsin football program has made the final three list for one of their recruiting targets in the 2025 class. Drayden Pavey, a three-star defensive lineman, has narrowed his list of schools to Indiana, Purdue and Wisconsin. The Ohio native has 22 scholarship offers, but decided to book official visits with Hoosiers, Boilermakers and Badgers.

Pavey has caught the attention of teams not only because of his physical strength, but also because of his size at the position. The defensive lineman comes in at 6-foot-1, 305 pounds and still has a burst of speed. Pavey visited Madison earlier this year to meet with the Wisconsin football staff and announced his plans for an official visit a month later.

With Pavey, the Wisconsin Badgers football staff could create a fearsome defensive line

While an addition to the defensive line would be a boost for the Badgers, the Wisconsin football staff would love to add someone like Pavey to the team. Pavey would provide Wisconsin with an excellent balance of size, strength and speed that the defensive line could utilize in the future. The Badgers currently have four players in their final year of eligibility along the defensive line, while another would be in his final year when Pavey theoretically arrives.

By the time Pavey reaches campus, Wisconsin football would certainly need the boost along the defensive line that the recruit can provide.

Could the Wisconsin football staff land Pavey after his official visit?

Pavey first visited the Purdue Boilermakers before visiting the Wisconsin football facilities on June 14. The defensive lineman didn’t make a decision after his visit and continues to post X about his upcoming visit to Madison. Pavey could very well become a Badger after meeting with the staff this weekend, which would be a big boost for Wisconsin’s defensive line.
