There have been quite a few offers the Wisconsin Badgers have sent high school prospects lately.

Looking at wide receiver in particular, the Wisconsin coaching staff offered two class of 2018 wide receivers this past week.

Allen, Tex., wide out Carson Schleker announced on Twitter Wednesday afternoon that the Badgers extended an offer to him. The Lone Star State has been good to UW in terms of recruiting receivers, with class of 2017 standouts Cade Green and Emmet Perry signing their letters of intent to play in Madison.

Ranked a three-star commit by 247 Sports, Rivals and Scout, Schleker’s Hudl film shows a player who has the speed and ability to separate from defenders (his profile notes a 4.39 40-yard dash). He’s not afraid to catch with his hands and can break away from defensive backs after the reception.

According to Scout, Schleker holds offers from Iowa State, Washington State and West Virginia, among others.

Schleker is listed at 5’8 and 175 pounds on 247 and 5’9 and 180 pounds on Rivals. Read more on his reactions to UW’s interest from Badger247’s Evan Flood ($).

Jornell Manns II

The Mansfield, Ohio native tweeted his offer on Wednesday. Ohio is also the home state of class of 2017’s Danny Davis and 2013’s Robert Wheelwright.

Listed at 5’11 by 247 Sports and 6’0 by Rivals and Scout, the wide receiver showcases his elusiveness after the catch in his Hudl highlights below (catch the spin move early on). His profile also boasts a sub 4.40 40-yard dash, with that speed seen in his explosive plays, including some return work.

Manns currently holds nine offers, including Cincinnati, Penn State, and Minnesota, according to Scout. He is rated a three-star recruit by 247, Rivals and Scout.
