The Badgers missed out on a talented Texas back projected to be a wide receiver, but two commits from the state of Georgia were honored for their impressive prep campaigns in 2015.

The Wisconsin Badgers currently sit at 22 known verbal commits and looking to add more, but it appears they're not in the running for a talented recruit out of Texas any longer.

Southlake, Tex. (Carroll) running back Lil'Jordan Humphrey announced via Twitter on Friday that his final two schools he's considering are California and Texas. That leaves Wisconsin out of the running for the 247Sports' composite three-star prospect, who's rated a four-star athlete by Scout.com.

Many recruiting services noted the Badgers and assistant coach Ted Gilmore were recruiting Humphrey to play wide receiver alongside fellow 2016 commits A.J. Taylor, Kendric Pryor and Quintez Cephus.

Quintez Cephus, Anthony Lotti honored

Speaking of Cephus, however, The Atlanta Journal Constitution named the composite three-star commit to its Class A all-state football team. The 6'2, 185-pound wide receiver from Macon, Ga. (Stratford Academy), per his offensive coordinator, caught 42 passes for 872 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also shined on the opposite side of the ball.

Oakwood, Ga. (West Lake) punter Anthony Lotti was named by the AJC to the Class AAA all-state team. It's the second consecutive honor for the three-star punter, who per the videos below, had some impressive kicks during the 2015 Georgia High School Senior All-Star game.
