Early Signing Day: 2021 OLB Darryl Peterson signs with Wisconsin – Bucky’s 5th Quarter

The Badgers officially signed another key piece in their 2021 class this morning in 3-star linebacker Darryl Peterson.

The three-star recruit comes out of Ohio powerhouse Archbishop Hoban (former home of Quan Easterling), where he ended an illustrious high school career this season with a state title and an all-area defensive player of the year award.

The Akron natives tape is as impressive as any, and its clear Peterson has a knack for getting into the backfield and creating chaos. While it remains to be seen how hell handle the increased pass coverage duties that will come with a move to the next level, his tendency to put opposition quarterbacks on the ground gives him as much upside as any other player in the class.

Rivals: 4 stars; No. 9 OH

ESPN: 3 stars; Grade: 76; No. 96 OLB; No. 106 Regional; No. 27 OH

Peterson chose the Badgers over other major offers such as Alabama, Michigan, and West Virginia, and will join Jack Pugh and Markus Allen in a trio of Ohio natives headed to Madison for next season.
