Another stellar weekend in Madison awaits.

NCAA Football: Georgia State at Wisconsin Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

With the forecast calling for temperatures in the 90s, Memorial Union should be busy this weekend with Madison residents, university students staying on campus for the summer, and some class of 2019 recruits hosted by the Wisconsin Badgers.

Two verbal commits and several other uncommitted targets will take in Wisconsin’s football facilities and the university.

As seen in our official visit tracker below, commits Julius Davis and Leo Chenal will reportedly be in town. Both are in-state, high three-star recruits according to 247Sports’ composite ratings, with Davis receiving offers from Notre Dame, LSU, and USC.

Chenal, by the way, can bench a lot:

Uncommitted recruits officially visiting this weekend

Last week, Wisconsin hosted linebacker Spencer Lytle and reportedly offensive lineman Bryce Benhart, both of whom are still deciding their collegiate futures. This week, there are quite a few more recruits reportedly making their way to UW:

Thursday night, B5Q received word from a source regarding another visitor, Columbus, Ohio (St. Francis De Sales) lineman Rodas Johnson.

247Sports, ESPN, and Rivals all rate Johnson as a four-star recruit, with 247Sports listing him as a defensive tackle while the other two recruiting services designate him on the offensive side of the ball as a guard. B5Q has also reached out to Johnson to officially confirm he is coming to Madison.
