Wisconsin lands QB despite Chryst being banned from HS campus

There’s some historic beef going on between one of Ohio’s strongest high school football programs and a team that has spent two-straight seasons in a New Year’s Six bowl game, and it’s reached a level where one is now signing athletes from the other without being allowed to visit them on campus.As reported by Land of 10, Wisconsin’s newest quarterback signee, St. Xavier (Ohio) of Cincinnati star Chase Wolf, chose the Badgers despite being unable to see Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst outside of Madison. The reason behind that apparently has everything to do with a player who was forced to abandon his Wisconsin commitment more than six years ago.Since the late decommitment of then-St. Xavier offensive lineman�Brandyn Cook, St.�Xavier coach�Steve Specht has aligned himself squarely opposite Chyrst, who told Cook he was too small to play in Chyrst’s system and he should find somewhere else to play shortly after he was hired as Pittsburgh’s head coach.Cook went on to sign with Miami of Ohio, and Chyrst has since made the move back to Wisconsin (he was the Badgers offensive coordinator before taking the head coach role at Pittsburgh). Specht, meanwhile, hasn’t forgotten the apparent snub from the former Pittsburgh coach and isn’t willing to let Chyrst or other Wisconsin coaches on campus at St. Xavier … until Chyrst himself calls to offer a personal apology.As for Chyrst, he reportedly was completely forthright when first recruiting Wolf, explaining the school’s past and still recruiting him on the merit of the program.
