Much has been written, especially here on B5Q, about Wisconsin’s current class of 2019.
According to 247Sports’ rankings, there are four four-star commits out of the eight players. At Rivals, three of the eight are rated as four-stars.
So it’s not entirely surprising that outside attention is being drawn to these future Badgers, most recently Wisconsin native Julius Davis. The Menomonee Falls, Wis., running back announced on Twitter this past Saturday that he was offered by LSU.
Badger247’s Evan Flood caught up with Davis about the offer, though the in-state standout sounds solid with his verbal commitment ($).
2019 safety Bryson Shaw bumped up to four-star
One of the latest verbal commits in Wisconsin’s class of 2019, the Potomac, Md., native jumped to a four-star ranking per 247Sports’ standalone rankings (the composite still ranks him as a three-star but with a higher rating). 247Sports also rates him as the No. 218 player in the country, the No. 13 safety, and No. 7 player in the state of Maryland.
Honored to have Received my 4th Star for Football. To now be considered a 4 Star football player and a 5 Star lacrosse player is very humbling! #BeTheBest #SpeedKills pic.twitter.com/8xc5ZSKnAD— Bryson Shaw (@bryson_shaw2) February 12, 2018
2018 OLB Mason Platter donates hair
It will take a while for class of 2018 signee Mason Platter to fly across the field looking like Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews, though not for the reason you’re thinking about.
Matthews is known for his long locks every time he chases after quarterbacks on the field. After donating a good portion of his own hair to Wigs for Kids, Platter will have to start growing some back.
So after 2 years, 5 months and 10 days I finally did it. I decided to donate to @wigsforkids because they do not charge the families for the wigs! Making a wig is an expensive process however. Everyone go to their page and drop a donation! pic.twitter.com/yiKlOGuAY3— Mason Platter (@Mason__Platter) February 11, 2018
It is a heartwarming act by Platter, who hails from Menomonie, Wis., and was one of 19 scholarship commits to sign for Wisconsin’s class of 2018.
Here’s the look the three-star ‘backer used to sport:
Congrats to our own Mustang Mason Platter on his signing of his letter of intent to play Football for the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Thanks for the dedication and commitment.
