Hirschfeld, a 6'6, 265-lb prospect, is being recruited by the Badgers along with several other schools, and their staff made sure to note his accomplishments.
"I got congratulations from a lot of the recruits, friends and coaches from winning state," he said.
Currently without an offer, Hirschfeld is hearing from Michigan State, Nebraska, Northern Illinois and others. Teammate George Panos is currently committed to the Badgers, and he has built up a lot of familiarity with the school, and they are looking to continue their relationship with him.
"Coach Strickland said he would bring me up to practices to watch them practice even though there are no more home games."
When asked if the Badgers talked to him about an offer, Hirschfeld said, "no they did not."
