Let’s check out who the Badgers’ staff is targeting for the next recruiting cycle.

So the Wisconsin Badgers finished spring ball last week, but as always, the coaching staff is in recruiting season.

High school recruits took in the practices from late March to late April, but it appears head coach Paul Chryst and his assistants are out in full force this week.

B5Q will highlight some new 2021 offers coming up later this week or early next, but for now, let’s see some of the opportunities presented for this current recruiting cycle.

Six players have already committed to UW’s 2020 class, and it appears that it will be a smaller set of future Badgers entering the program. In my opinion, that makes these offers more interesting.

OLB/DE Robert Wooten

Both 247Sports and Rivals list Wooten, from Stafford, Tex., as a three-star weak side defensive end. According to the recruiting services, Virginia Tech, Texas Tech, Kansas, SMU and Houston are among those programs that have offered the projected lineman.

According to an interview with BadgerBlitz.com’s Jon McNamara ($), Wooten—will take an official visit to Wisconsin after the offer. For what it’s worth, McNamara denotes the prep standout as an outside linebacker.

WR Caleb Fauria

From Texas to Attleboro, Mass., Wisconsin appears to have been busy in the past couple of days. Fauria hails from the New England area and tweeted the offer on Wednesday.

A three-star wide receiver by 247Sports and Rivals, Fauria holds offers from Iowa, Boston College and Colorado—with both recruiting services noting his significant interest in those programs.

LSU recently presented an offer to him as well earlier this week, and Fauria also recently visited the Hawkeyes in late April. It should be noted on his Twitter page that he lists himself as a tight end.

OLB Jackson LaDuke

Both 247Sports and Rivals also rate the Sparks, Nev. (Spanish Springs), native a three-star outside linebacker.

247Sports reports 19 offers, Rivals noting 18, for LaDuke. According to the two recruiting services, Nebraska is the only other Big Ten program to present an opportunity to play at the next level. Many Pac-12 teams—USC, UCLA, Arizona State and Oregon among them—have done the same.

The prep ‘backer tweeted the offer from the Wisconsin coaching staff on Wednesday.
