Wisconsin Badgers news, 7/2: Camp Randall, Wisconsin linebackers, Jon Leuer, more

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Hump Day, folks.

Football

It's an experience unlike any other, boys and girls: Camp Randall Stadium was named one of the best college football venues.

Speaking of a helluva tradition, this seems like an easy decision.

Replacing Chris Borland, Conor O'Neill and Ethan Armstrong won't be easy, but the linebackers shouldn't be too shabby for defensive coordinator Dave Aranda next season. Fox Sports Wisconsin's Jesse Temple looks at the depth chart for the position.

He's too short. He's too slow. Whatever connotation you want to throw at Borland, he wants to prove it wrong.

This shouldn't come as a huge surprise, given they're still in their rookie contracts, but Russell Wilson and J.J. Watt topped Pro Football Focus' list of the most underpaid players in the NFL (Insider).

Wilson made his weekly visit to Seattle's Children Hospital and chronicled the experience via Instagram.

Basketball

Mike Bruesewitz talked with Jake about hosting his first summer camps and his interesting experience playing overseas in Israel.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban isn't shying away from keeping Devin Harris on the squad.

Jon Leuer's future in Memphis seems to be on the rise, according to Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace.

"Jon is what I call a young veteran...he was a four-year college player in a great program at Wisconsin. He's gone through the introductory phase of an NBA players career, and now he can move into the most productive part."

Hockey

NHL free agency started this earlier this weekend and a few former skaters found a new club. Tom Gilbert signed with the Montreal Canadiens and Jack Skille signed with the New York Islanders.

Recruiting

Head coach Gary Andersen has proven he's a unique recruiter and his latest plan solidifies this.

Class of 2015 Neenah center Matt Heldt committed to Marquette on Tuesday. The Badgers had shown interest as of late.

Quick hitters

Some former alumni started EatStreet in Madison in 2009, and it's been successful and then some.
