The Wisconsin Badgers coaching staff continues to hand out offers for the 2020 class, and on Saturday, two in-state standouts tweeted out opportunities to play for the cardinal and white.
Wide receiver Chimere Dike and WR/OLB Cole Dakovich both announced offers from Wisconsin, the lone Division I football program in the state, on Saturday afternoon.
Rivals/BadgerBlitz.com’s Jon McNamara and 247Sports’ Evan Flood noted Dike and Dakovich visited on Saturday with an apparent “Junior Day” hosted by UW.
247Sports rates Dike as a three-star prospect who hails from Waukesha, Wis. (North). According to WisSports.Net, Dike caught 79 passes for 1,091 yards and 12 touchdowns claiming WFCA large school all-state honors last season.
Dike’s recruiting process seems to be heating up in 2019, as he also received an offer from Iowa State on Jan. 10.
