In an appearance with Josh Pate on the Late Kick Show, Wiltfong said he feels good about the Badgers landing the blue chip lineman based on where things stand now.
"My 247sports crystal ball is on Wisconsin and it's a '5' level," Wiltfong said. "I may be going up to an '8' here soon. I really think the Badgers are in great position to land Nolan Rucci.
"Wisconsin is the number 15 recruiting class in the country right now and Nolan Rucci would be another big coup for Paul Chryst and company. I think the relationship with the staff, his brother (Hayden Rucci) is on the team, being on campus, being around their offensive line coach, being around their head coach, and being around their guys, he's extremely comfortable with that locker room."
