Quarterback Ben Bryant had been committed to Wisconsin since December, but says the Badgers coaches told him he was no longer a fit after Bryant tweeted that he had received an offer from Georgia. "The night before this was tweeted out, I called (Wisconsin) Coach Budmayr to give him heads up that I was given the offer and left a message on his voicemail. I made it clear I was 100 percent committed to the Badgers," Bryant said in a statement. "The next morning we spoke on the phone and I was informed that I was no longer a good fit for Wisconsin and I was encouraged to continue looking for a fit." Wisconsin coaches are not allowed to comment publicly about unsigned recruits, so the staff will not be able to comment on what happened.

"For the most part, I fee like I'm starting to play faster each and every practice," said Watt, who added nothing will come easily in the NFL. "You don't have room to make a lot of mistakes."

One thing to watch with first-round pick T.J. Watt at Steelers rookie minicamp - his hands. Steelers brass have praised Watt's ability to win one-on-one matchups with his hand placement. Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst noticed that quality pretty early while coaching Watt. "He had some natural stuff to him where you knew he would be good,"Chryst said.
