The Wisconsin Badgers host their open practice to the fans on Saturday, along with the Badger Sports Kids’ Fair and a Q&A session with UW athletic director Barry Alvarez prior to the team participating in its ninth of 15 spring sessions.
It appears some recruits will come to town on this big weekend where many will receive the opportunity to check out the 2019 roster and more. One at least is on an official visit, another couple 2019 signees, and an intriguing 2021 offensive lineman whose older brother will join the Badgers next season.
Let’s check out who’s publicly called out their travel to Wisconsin. As a head’s up, B5Q will continue to update this post if and when we hear more are coming to Madison.

247Sports, Rivals and ESPN all rate Rylie Mills as a four-star recruit, with 247Sports composite rankings designating him as the No. 122 player overall and No. 8 strongside defensive end in the nation.
Rivals lists 25 offers, 247Sports 28 opportunities received for Mills. Alabama, Clemson, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State and others have offered the Lake Forest, Ill., product. Both recruiting services report that he visited to the Irish last weekend, with a trip to Columbus upcoming at the end of the month.
As he noted in the tweet above, this is appears to be an official visit.
2021 OL Nolan Rucci
Rucci is the younger brother of 2019 Wisconsin tight end signee Hayden Rucci, and like his older sibling, the 2021 offensive lineman has become a highly touted prospect.
Rucci is a Penn State legacy, as his father Todd played for the Nittany Lions before moving on to a successful NFL career with the New England Patriots.
2019 TE Hayden Rucci
The Rucci crew will be in Madison this weekend, and that includes the incoming tight end who was a four-star prospect by Rivals. The Lititz, Penn. (Warwick), native tweeted earlier this week he will be in town.
2019 TE Clay Cundiff
Another recent Wisconsin signee from this past recruiting cycle, the three-star Kansas recruit tweeted his apparent return to Madison earlier on Friday. B5Q confirmed that he is in Madison currently.
2019 RB Julius Davis
Another signee from this past class, the Menomonee Falls, Wis., product tweeted he’ll be heading to Madison as well.
