The Wisconsin Badgers remain in contention for some highly-touted recruits as we swing into June. On Thursday, Roselle (Lake Park), Ill., defensive tackle Mike Panasiuk announced released his top three -- naming the Badgers along with Penn State and Michigan State as his leaders.
The 247Sports composite three-star prospect -- ranked the 39th-best composite defensive tackle in the nation and recently invited to The Opening Finals in early July -- received an offer from Wisconsin in April after visiting Madison. The Badgers made the cut for Panasiuk's Top 6 back on May 29.

It also appears he's planning to commit next Monday at 9 a.m. CT.
Right now, the moment is gaining in the Spartans' favor, who offered just Thursday. 247Sports' Crystal Ball projections show a very strong trend towards Panasiuk heading to East Lansing since then.

The talented La Puente (Bishop Amat), Calif. recruit -- another The Opening Finals recipient -- runs a Nike SPARQ-verified 4.41 shuttle. His Hudl tape shows a reliable receiver which should translate to a reliable cornerback with soft hands depending upon which side of the ball he plays on.

The composite three-star linebacker has now been offered by 31 schools, with Rutgers being the latest on Thursday.
