Emergency football recruiting update!

There were one billion recruits at the game on Saturday. Let’s try and round them all up.

@B5QPhotos, Matt Fleming

Here, to the best of my knowledge, are most of the recruits that were at the Michigan game on Saturday and have tweeted about it as of Sunday evening.

This is in the order that I noticed these tweets online and not any other. If you’ve seen any other recruits tweet about how much they enjoyed their time in Madison, please add them in the comments and we can have a running tally. I’ll also try and keep this updated on Monday and Tuesday as more kids post about their visits.

Two recruits have already verbally committed from the weekend and there is a link to both of their commitment breakdowns. There is also a link to the preview of the weekend which contains another list of players that were planning on being in Madison.

  • A 2021 OL/DL, Szydlowski isn’t ranked on any recruiting site that I could find. He plays for Columbia Central High in Columbia, Tenn.
  • Jake Skelly of Bishop Hartley High School in Columbus, Ohio is an unranked DE in the class of 2021.
  • Joe Timmis is an unranked 2021 OG out of Marquette University High in Milwaukee.
  • Jeff Bowie is a composite 3-star DE in the class of 2021. He goes to school at West Branch High in West Branch, Iowa. He is considered a strong Iowa lean by both 247 and Rivals.
  • Jerry Cross is a big time 2022 recruit that plays WR. The 6-foot-6 sophomore attends Rufus King in Milwaukee.
  • The 4-star safety from Muskego is on the top of Wisconsin’s board for the class of 2021. Hunter Wohler is rated as the No. 2 prospect in the state and the No. 8 safety in the country by 247 Sports.
  • Gabe Brown is a 2020 OL prospect from East Kentwood High in Grand Rapids, Mich.
  • Ja’moni Jones is an unranked WR in the 2020 class from East Kentwood High in Grand Rapids, Mich.
  • Christian Tanner is an unranked QB from, you guessed it, East Kentwood High in Grand Rapids, Mich. It would appear that a number of players made the trip to Madison from Grand Rapids for the weekend.
  • Zach Branam is an unranked 2021 QB out of La Salle High School in Cincinnati, Ohio.
  • T.J. Bollers is a 4-star DE from Tiffin, Iowa. He is projected to go to Iowa but Wisconsin is definitely in the mix for this high end 2021 talent.
  • Owen Arnett is an unranked 2021 ATH who goes to Arrowhead High School in Hartland.
  • Joey Okla is an unranked, 6-foot-3, 2022 OT from Arrowhead High School in Hartland who is also receiving interest from Iowa and Northwestern.
  • Ben Brawner is an unranked, 6-foot-3, 2021 ATH/WR from Racine Case High School in Racine.
  • Ryan Keeler is a 3-star 2021 DE from Nazareth Academy in La Grange Park, Ill. He’s a strong Michigan lean so having him on campus while the Wolverines melted down probably only helped the Badgers in this battle.
  • Hunter Whitenack is a 6-foot-6, 315 lbs. building of a man in the 2022 class. The OT is from New Carlisle, Ind. and attends New Prairie High School. Iowa, Notre Dame and Purdue are also already interested.
  • Tyler Maro is a 6-foot-8 OT in the class of 2021 out of Davenport, Iowa. Iowa, Northwestern and Kansas State are all interested as well.
  • Rodney McGraw is a 4-star DE in the class of 2021. He attends Elkhart Central in Elkhart, Ind. His Crystal Ball is 100% to Michigan so, again, it’s nice to have him on campus when Wisconsin looks so much better. The Badgers are joined by Penn State, Purdue, Indiana, Kansas and basically every MAC school in offering McGraw.

Alright, there you have it. That’s not even all of the players that were in town over the weekend nor does it even mention the basketball players that were there! We’ll have more recruiting posts for you this week, obviously.

Lastly, if you looked at the header picture closely you’ll notice that joining commits Max Lofy and Jordan Turner was 4-star LB Kaden Johnson. Sorry to bury the lede.

UPDATE 1 of ? (9:00 a.m. CT): Austin Booker a 2021 DE from Center Grove High School in Greenwood, Ind. was on campus as well.
