The Wisconsin Badgers did not just host Minnesota in the last regular season game of its 2018 campaign, but also a slew of high school prospects.

From current commits to some prep standouts, quite a few recruits took in the action at Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Here is a list of some of those commits and recruits who we know were in Madison this weekend to take in the 128th meeting between the Badgers and Gophers. From what we have seen reported or tweeted, at least a few verbal commitments and some targets from around the Midwest made their way to Wisconsin.
