WISCruiting Weekly: May 15, 2013

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE

The latest and most important news from the past week of Wisconsin recruiting.

This past week marked another busy one in Badgers recruiting, particularly in Georgia, where coaches Thomas Hammock and Dave Aranda visited with a combined 14 recruits. Wisconsin continued to make scholarship offers to players scattered from coast-to-coast, offering to 20 new players this past week.

Earlier this week, we also learned from Evan Flood of Badger247 that tight end Carson Meier -- who made an unofficial visit this past weekend -- talked about Wisconsin as his frontrunner.

"I love Wisconsin," he told 247sports. "It's my favorite out of the offers I've got so far. I love the stadium, the atmosphere, and the school. It's a really good school academically. They're a good football program. They've won the Big Ten three years in a row."

In other news, it unfortunately sounds like cornerback Troy Vincent is leaning towards committing to Penn State, which is closer to home for the Maryland native.

And to end on a more positive note, Flood believes running back Taiwan Deal and athlete Ula Tolutau are close to signing with Wisconsin.
