Last Friday, we previewed the recruits who were expected to show up this past weekend for Wisconsin’s homecoming match-up against Illinois. At least one official visitor was in town, while a variety of in-state and out-of-state prep players also made their way to Madison.

These recruits experienced two or three seasons of weather inside Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday during Wisconsin’s 49–20 win over Illinois.

Here’s who we noticed at Camp Randall Stadium, combining our own observations with tweets from the recruits plus other media reports.
