The Wisconsin Badgers have been busy on the recruiting trail to start October, having made several offers last week.
Last Monday, wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins announced via Twitter that he had received a scholarship offer from Wisconsin.
Thankful for my 17th offer to the University of Wisconsin‼️⚪️ pic.twitter.com/p6mwLbE8gV— Isaiah Hodgins (@IsaiahHodgins) October 4, 2016
At 6’3.5, 194 pounds, Hodgins is a highly regarded wide receiver out of Walnut Creek, Calif., as he’s rated a four-star prospect by Rivals and Scout, and a three-star recruit by 247Sports. At the Opening Bay Area regional, he ran a 4.76-second 40-yard dash with a 32.8-inch vertical jump.
As his tweet indicates, Wisconsin is Hodgins’s 17th offer, having previously received offers from Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon State, Michigan and Washington.
The Badgers likely will work hard to get Hodgins on campus later this season for a visit. He previously has taken official visits to Nebraska (Oct. 1) and Oregon State (this past weekend) and has a late-October visit scheduled to Oregon.
It is widely assumed that Wisconsin would like to add another wide receiver to the 2017 class, as the Badgers currently hold a verbal commit from Cade Green (greyshirt commit Derron Harrell is set to join the Badgers in January and could also be a cornerback). It bears watching to see where Wisconsin stands having offered just last week.
Wisconsin offers 2018 linebacker Jack Sanborn
Sanborn is a 6’2, 210-pound inside linebacker out of Lake Zurich, Ill. The consensus three-star prospect by 247Sports, Rivals and Scout has received scholarship offers from Duke, Indiana, Iowa and Iowa State.
The Badgers have only one verbal commit for the 2018 class: River Rouge, Mich., safety Reggie Pearson.
2017 running back off the board
In case you missed it, four-star running back Kennedy Brooks announced his verbal commitment to the University of Oklahoma last Monday. Previously Wisconsin had shown interested in the highly productive back out of Texas.
