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 following those spring sessions.

On Thursday, B5Q highlighted some 2020 recruits who received recent offers. Now, let’s look at a few 2021 standouts that Wisconsin has presented opportunities to early on in their respective recruiting processes.

Note there were over a handful of offers recently, so B5Q will highlight more in the coming days.

QB Ty Thompson

Wisconsin still does not have a quarterback in the 2020 class, so potentially the 2021 cycle could be extremely important. The Gilbert, Ariz. (Mesquite), sophomore tweeted the offer on May 1, and 247Sports’ standalone ratings already project him as a four-star recruit, the No. 194 player overall and No. 11 pro-style quarterback in the 2021 class.

Rivals reports two offers at the moment—one from Northern Arizona and one from Wisconsin.

BadgerBlitz.com’s Jon McNamara spoke with Thompson ($) earlier this week regarding the offer.

QB Deacon Hill

Quarterbacks coach Jon Budmayr stayed out west with the next offer a day later to the Santa Barbara, Calif., signal caller. Like with Thompson, Wisconsin strikes early with an opportunity presented to a player whose recruiting process appears to be starting to heat up.

A day later, Hill also tweeted an offer from Nevada. He spoke with McNamara in a recent BadgerBlitz.com article ($) and 247Sports’ Evan Flood ($).

LB Jeremiah Trotter, Jr.

On Thursday, the Philadelphia (St. Joseph’s) product announced the offer. Both 247Sports and Rivals project him as an inside linebacker, while the former already rates him as a four-star player in the 2021 class.

Rivals reports 10 offers for Trotter, including from Arizona State, Oklahoma State, Pitt, Virginia Tech and UW. He is also the son of former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Jeremiah Trotter.
