The Wisconsin Badgers have 17 known verbal commitments in the Class of 2016. Until they grace the field of Camp Randall Stadium on Saturdays starting next fall, they strive to shine under the Friday night lights.

Antonio Williams continues hot 2015 start

The New London, N.C. (North Stanly) running back and 247Sports' composite four-star recruit continued his hot start to his senior campaign, though in a losing effort. He tweeted out that he ran for 385 yards and five touchdowns Friday night in a 63-38 loss to Monroe Sun Valley. That would make him accountable for all the touchdowns scored for North Stanly.

This, after rushing for 284 yards and two touchdowns last week against Bunker Hill, per MaxPreps and The Stanly News & Press -- though from his highlights from Hudl and his Twitter feed, he looks to have rushed for 321 yards and scored at least three times in the first week of action.

Cole Van Lanen pancakes, dominates

Blocking in front of Williams in years to come will hopefully be the composite four-star offensive linemen from Green Bay, Wis. (Bay Port). BadgerBlitz.com's Jon McNamara caught the 62-19 blowout win by Bay Port over Sheboygan North Friday evening, and was quite impressed with Van Lanen, who was listed at 6'5, 280 pounds.
