Madden was previously committed to the Wisconsin Badgers, but he changed his mind after head coach Gary Anderson left for Oregon State. After a visit with the UGA coaches in Athens, Madden committed.
“Everything about it was great,” Madden told Dawgs247. “The whole thing about the visit was great. The experience, the college and the university.”
Madden (6-7, 345), attends Barnegat High School in Barnegat, New Jersey. He committed to the Bulldogs over offers from several top schools, including Arizona State, Florida, Miami, Nebraska, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia.
In the 247Sports rankings, Madden is listed as a 4-star recruit, the No. 45 offensive tackle, and the No. 432 overall recruit.
Rivals.com rates Sam Madden as a 3-star recruit, the No. 53 offensive tackle, and No. 15 in the New Jersey Postseason Top 35 2015.
The Bulldogs now have three 2015 commitments for the offensive line. Madden joins Sage Hardin of Atlanta, GA and DeVondre Seymour of Suwanee, GA.
