It is hard to believe that the 2017 season is already winding down with one New Year’s Six bowl game to play for the Wisconsin Badgers in Miami against the Hurricanes on Dec. 30.
With the early signing period for college football recruiting approaching between Dec. 20-22, however, there is still much to cover for us here at B5Q.
That includes which current verbal commits are visiting Madison just about 10 days away from the first signing period. Judging from some class of 2018 commits’ social media accounts, quite a few were on campus this weekend.
In the first picture below, it appears the following made the journey to Madison:
- Defensive backs Reggie Pearson, Donte Burton, Alex Smith, and Travian Blaylock
- Projected wide receivers Isaac Guerendo, A.J. Abbott, and Taj Mustapha
- In-state standouts like Mason Platter, Cormac Sampson, C.J. Goetz, and Boyd Dietzen
- Four-star inside linebacker Jack Sanborn
- Athlete and potential tight end Jaylan Franklin
- Michigan offensive lineman Michael Furtney
- Defensive linemen Bryson Williams and Isaiah Mullens
As noted by BadgerBlitz.com’s Jon McNamara, it appears quarterback Chase Wolf, running back Nakia Watson, and wide receiver/athlete Aron Cruickshank were not in Madison—though that should not spell any speculation.
Williams, from Lincoln, Neb., was recently offered by new Nebraska head coach Scott Frost and his staff. Wisconsin defensive line coach Inoke Breckterfield visited his future defensive lineman earlier this week as well, and he took his official visit this weekend.

As initially reported by The D Zone, since 2001 Wisconsin has only been able to sign 7 Michigan kids out of HS. In the Class of 2018 Wisconsin is expected to sign 5!https://t.co/KI3nPbCE9l pic.twitter.com/7yyQTGYeAe— The D Zone (@TheD_Zone) December 9, 2017
