Recruiting is the lifeblood of any major college athletics team, but following it closely as a fan can sometimes be difficult and can often be time consuming. We’ll try and condense all the recruiting news you can use into this bi-weekly post. It’ll include updates on current commits, including stats from their high school games, as well as news on players the Badgers are still pursuing. Let’s get down to business!

Football offers

  • Top 2021 target, 4-star S Hunter Wohler (Muskego), took a visit to South Bend, Ind. over the weekend and came away with an offer.

These types of offers are going to keep coming for Wohler. He’s really good and the Badgers are lucky that he plays in their backyard or else, to be honest, they wouldn’t be leading his recruitment right now.

  • Heading into the fertile recruiting region of the DMV (D.C., Maryland, Virginia) is always a good call, however crowded it may be. And it will be a crowded field trying to secure the services of 2021 4-star DE Demeioun Robinson (Gaithersburg, Md.) whom the Badgers offered over the weekend.

Robinson is a 6-foot-3 and 220 pound DE out of Quince Orchard High School in Maryland. He is rated as the No. 92 played in the country by the 247 Composite and has offers from Alabama, Florida, Ohio State, Penn State, Michigan, Texas A&M and a whole bunch of other schools.

Robinson is FAST off the snap, holy shit. With all of the blue-bloods already involved I’d say Wisconsin may not be at the top of Robinson’s list, but as they say “you don’t weigh in, you don’t wrassle.”

  • Wisconsin also offered 2021 4-star WR Jerand Bradley (Plano, Texas) over the weekend. Texas, much like the DMV, is a fertile recruiting ground and it is nice to see the Badgers continue to try and expand their recruiting footprint into these traditionally deep and talent-rich areas.

Bradley is a 6-foot-5 and 190 pound WR is ranked as the No. 300 prospect in the nation by the 247 Composite and the No. 51 WR. The John Paul II High School junior has offers from Arkansas, Kansas, Colorado, Iowa State, Nebraska, Rutgers, Purdue, Texas Tech, Arizona State and others.

His sophomore highlight video shows a WR who is already learning how to use his tremendous height to his advantage.

Bradley is an ideal red zone target and would only become more physically imposing after a year or two in a college weight lifting program.

Current football commit updates

  • 2020 3-star LB commit Malik Reed (Chandler, Ariz.) had a good weekend for Chandler High School.

Here is a link to his full highlights against Hamilton, but take a look at this hit he lays on some unsuspecting sap!

The Wolves (10-0) are the No. 1 seed in the open division state playoffs in Arizona.

  • 2021 3-star QB commit Deacon Hill (Santa Barbara, Calif.) helped lead the Dons to their first league title in 18 years!

They are also heading to their state playoffs as a top seed.

  • 2020 4-star LB commit Nick Herbig (Honolulu, Hawaii) got himself into a bit of trouble last week, earning a suspension for being involved in an off-campus fight.

According to (head coach Cal) Lee, the incident occurred on Saturday night after the completion of the recent girls volleyball state championships. Herbig and teammate Jordan Botelho were at the championship match between Kamehameha and Punahou, supporting a friend of Herbig who plays for the Warriors. During the match, Botelho got into a verbal back-and-forth with a Kamehameha student, adding fuel to an exchange that had begun on social media prior to Saturday.

It does not appear that this will alter his scholarship offer from Wisconsin.

Football visits

  • 2021 S Jah’von Grigsby (Baton Rouge, La.) is planning on being in Madison for the Purdue game.
