Redshirt lineman Michael Deiter, a key member of the Wisconsin Badgers’ offensive line, is set to return for his final year in Madison.
Wisconsin’s official Twitter account sent out two tweets on Wednesday afternoon, the first with the message, “Gonna be good to have all five of these guys back next season…” and the the second announcing Deiter as a “2018 Way-Too-Early Piesman Trophy Watch List” candidate.
A UW official later confirmed Detier’s return to B5Q.
Deiter has started all 41 games in his Wisconsin career at center, left guard, or left tackle. This past season, he started all 14 games at left tackle with redshirt freshman Tyler Biadasz emerging at center. The redshirt junior earned second-team All-America honors from Sporting News and consensus first-team All-Big Ten honors.
