Hits keep coming for Badgers’ secondary

Donnell Vercher

Already knowing that three defensive secondary starters would need to be replaced, Wisconsin took a hit a week ago when reports surfaced that projected starter Reggie Mitchell would be leaving the Badgers, likely for Pittsburgh.

Now, that unit has apparently taken yet another hit.

According to a Fresno, Calif., television station, safety Donnell Vercher has been denied admission to UW and will not play for the Badgers this fall.  Instead, CBS 47 Sports reported, the defensive back will play for Fresno State in 2013.  A source told the station that grades are not an issue and Vercher will be eligible to play for the Bulldogs immediately.

No reason for Vercher being denied admission to UW was given.

Vercher had signed with the Badgers earlier this offseason after spending the 2012 season at a Fresno junior college.  Thanks in large part to the attrition in the secondary, Vercher was seen as a potential starter once summer camp opens in early August.

    Finally, a school decides not to offer a scholarship based solely on athletic prowess. Academics are ALSO part of the equation at U. of Wisconsin. I’m proud of the Badgers. Fresno St., not so much……

    Read th f’n article squishmitten.

    NO REASON WAS GIVEN FOR HIS DENIAL OF ENTRY TO WISCONSIN.

    I don’t care about political correctness.
    What you post on here is overt racism. You ONLY post negative things when its about blacks, and its CONSTANT. I guess I don’t know what more I’d expect from a dolt from South Carolina. I bet you still fly a confederate flag, don’t you Bocephus?

    No reason given for denial, what you posted is pure conjecture, you narrow minded feeb.
    You should be banned from these boards for your racist viewpoints. Its 2013, not 1953, Grand Wizard.

    I spelled it that way, so that you’d understand. You know like your hero Gomer? Su-prise, Su-prise, Su-prise.

    Typos, the last bastion of an argument for a turd that should know he’s wrong, but is too dumb and obtuse to ever admit it.

    You are an ignorant racist piece of shit.
