The most important thing that Marisa Moseley will have to do if she wants to achieve her goal of turning the Wisconsin Badgers women’s basketball program around is raise the talent floor of the team significantly.

On Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period for 2022 recruits, she started to do that. Wisconsin signed four players, two of who are ranked in the top-100 by the espnW Hoop Gurlz recruiting rankings, in Moseley’s first class from around the Midwest and Canada.

“I am thrilled to introduce Wisconsin Women’s Basketball’s class of 2026,” Moseley said. ”Each of these dynamic young women are the epitome of what a Badger women’s basketball player embodies. They are all hardworking, team-first winners who are also fantastic role models and future leaders. These four are exactly what college athletics is all about. They all come to Madison from their own unique walks of life and will come together under one roof with the same goal in mind—to win championships!”

“Throughout their respective recruiting processes, we discussed what it would mean to become a member of this program and what expectations I not only had for them as players, but for us collectively as a team. They all believe in my vision for this team and understand what they can do individually to make it a reality! I feel honored to coach them and cannot wait to get started,” Moseley added.
