Highly-touted Badgers QB commit Graham Mertz shuts down recruitment

In a social media post late Thursday evening, Wisconsin quarterback commit Graham Mertz emphasized that he is completely shutting down his recruitment, despite receiving offers from some of the other top programs in the country.

In the post, Mertz writes: "I am ready to move on past the recruitment process and just play ball... This process has shown me that Wisconsin is the best fit for me as a student-athlete.... I am completely shutting down my recruitment."

Mertz was on the radar of most colleges even before his commitment to Wisconsin, but in the past year, his standing has been elevated as he's taken part in national camps around the country.
