How did the future Badgers do this past weekend?

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 as well as news on players the Badgers are still pursuing. Let’s get down to business!

Current Football Commits

  • 2020 4-star LB, and highest rated defensive recruit for the Badgers, Nick Herbig and his St. Louis Crusaders team are operating on all cylinders this season. The Crusaders, the No. 1 team in the state of Hawaii, only got to play one half of football this past weekend due to malfunctioning lights at the stadium, but still steamrolled the No. 4 team in the state 28-0. Herbig recorded a sack in the shutout.
  • Some good news and some bad news for 2021 3-star QB commit Deacon Hill (Santa Barbara, Calif.). He won player of the week for his play two weeks ago, which is good!

But then his team got clobbered, and he had a subpar game as well, in the Dons game this weekend, which is bad. From the recap:

The St. Bonaventure defense used a variety of blitzes to confuse the Dons’ offensive line and make life difficult for Hill. The Wisconsin commit completed 9 of 19 passes for 128 yards.

That was Acker’s second TD of the game. He finished with 91 rushing yards on 18 carries according to Madison.com. This person on Twitter dot com brings up a pretty interesting point.

  • 2020 3-star WR Chimere Dike (Waukesha North) had a tough game against Muskego last Friday night. Muskego won 49-20 and thanks to Wisconsin 2021 target, 4-star S Hunter Wohler, Dike was held to seven catches for 77 yards.

Dike did, however, house a kick return which was pretty sweet.

We’ll have another post later in the week previewing official visitors, and the like, for the game against Michigan on Saturday.
