Illinois Football Recruiting: Wisconsin Offers Michael Julian


2013 quarterback/athlete Michael Julian received an offer from the Wisconsin Badgers on January 3rd.

This now brings his total number of offers to twelve. The other teams that have offered at Julian include: Arizona, Boston College, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Charlotte, Cincinnati, East Carolina, Florida Atlantic, Indiana, Marshall, and Toledo.

Julian is a 6’5″, 180 pound quarterback from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. He played this past season at Hilton Head High School.

Hilton Head made it into the South Carolina State Playoffs (Class AAA) this past season. However, they were bounced in the first round by Strom Thurmond, 62-20.

According to ESPN, “Julian is big, strong, athletic prospect who although primarily a pocket passer, shows the athleticism needed to pressure defenses off the edge” and “has the size for the quarterback position at the major level of competition.”

The three-star recruit is currently ranked 11th in the state of South Carolina, 38th among quarterbacks (pocket passers), and 350th among the Southeast region by ESPN.
