Wisconsin Badgers fans have to wait until 2:30 pm CT today to watch No. 10 UW take on BYU.
So why not check in on some future Badgers?
Let’s start in Indiana, where wide receiver Isaac Guerendo is tearing up stat sheets left and right.
The Avon, Ind., standout scored three touchdowns in the Orioles’ 63–7 win on Friday night. The Indianapolis Star noted Guerendo caught five receptions for 76 yards with two scores through the air, plus a 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
What’s more impressive is that through five games, Guerendo has scored 18 touchdowns.
Wide receivers A.J. Abbott and Taj Mustapha
The West Bloomfield, Mich., wide receivers were at it again on Friday night. Abbott caught eight passes for 145 yards and a touchdown in their 37–8 win. This came after a 270-yard, four-touchdown game last week.
Mustapha also reeled in a touchdown:

WR/ATH Aron Cruickshank
This is simply an eye-opening touchdown run by the speedster from New York.

Keeping a read option, Cruickshank takes the ball inside, only to quickly (understatement) take it outside and sprint for the end zone.
We knew about these abilities when Cruickshank committed to Wisconsin earlier this summer:
Simply put, Cruickshank’s Hudl film is impressive. Shown as a quarterback and wide receiver, there’s a speed and elusiveness that’s instantly translatable to Wisconsin’s offense under head coach Paul Chryst.
The burst to get through the tackles and bouncing it out to the edge—combined with a lateral quickness and a breakaway motor that separates himself from defenders in the open field—makes Cruickshank a prospect who could thrive in Madison.
Though there may not be as many highlights at wide receiver, Cruickshank showed he can reel in passes (just after the 1:15 mark shows him going up the ladder to make a catch). His prospects as a returner, along with fellow 2018 commit, cornerback Alexander Smith, adds some hype to a phase of special teams for coach Chris Haering that could be needed in years to come.
CB Travian Blaylock
One of the two cornerback recruits for the class of 2018, Blaylock’s Eagles pulled off a win on Thursday.

LB Jack Sanborn
BadgerBlitz.com’s Jon McNamara went down to Illinois to see four-star linebacker commit. Check out his video below.
2019 ATH Leo Chanel
Chenal, who committed earlier this week, appeared to have a good day. His older brother, John, who also just decommitted from North Dakota earlier this week, retweeted the following stats, which appear to be pretty, pretty, pretty good.
