Another weekend, another set of official visitors coming to Madison as the Wisconsin Badgers will host some 2019 verbal commits and an intriguing linebacker target starting on Friday.

Even before the festivities begin, Wisconsin could receive good news as Washington, D.C. (Gonzaga), athlete Dean Engram will verbally commit to a collegiate program on Friday morning at 11 a.m. ET.

Engram visited Wisconsin last weekend, along with defensive tackle target Isaiah Gibson and new UW verbal commit James Williams. Stay tuned for more if the Penn State legacy chooses to wear cardinal and white.

As seen below in B5Q’s official visitor tracker, Wisconsin will welcome at least seven known players to Madison.

Those include quarterback Graham Mertz—who just was named to the Elite 11 last weekend and as a result claimed a spot in The Opening Finals—and Logan Brown, the five-star offensive tackle and No. 9 player overall in the nation according to 247Sports composite rankings.

Other class of 2019 verbal commits like defensive lineman Keeanu Benton, athlete Marcus Graham, tight end Hayden Rucci and offensive lineman Joe Tippmann will also officially visit according to various reports. Rucci and Tippmann are rated four-star prospects according to Rivals and 247Sports, respectively.

Bellflower, Calif. (St. John Bosco) linebacker Spencer Lytle confirmed with B5Q on Thursday that he is still officially visiting Wisconsin as well.

Lytle is a high three-star prospect according to 247Sports and Rivals, with both recruiting services reporting 42 offers from many Power Five programs. Those include Clemson, Notre Dame, Auburn and Oregon, among many others. He visited Wisconsin earlier this spring.

Though Menomonee Falls, Wis., running back Julius Davis will take his official next weekend, the three-star Wisconsin verbal commit confirmed he will be in Madison this weekend as well for what appears to be an unofficial visit.

Stay tuned to B5Q for more recruiting coverage and reactions to the weekend that will be here in Madison.
