2019 Wisconsin RB commit Julius Davis offered by LSU

Plus, a cool gesture by a future Badger.

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.

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.

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.

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:
