The Badgers offered a four-star quarterback who may now be their top target at the position.

It was a relatively quiet week for Wisconsin compared to the hectic nature of these last few months. Eight players were still offered scholarships, but no coaching visits or unofficial visits to Madison were made. The biggest news may be the recent offer to quarterback D.J. Gillins, given that Wisconsin is out of the race for Kyle Allen and DeShone Kizer. Gillins released his top five this week with Wisconsin, Duke, Arizona, Boston College and Louisville making the cut.

In terms of quarterbacks, the Badgers were also looking at Manny Wilkins, but he just gave a verbal commitment to Arizona State on May 30. It appears Wisconsin is still focused on landing either Gillins or Nico Pierre (offered May 22).

The Badgers' 2014 recruiting class is currently ranked 32nd nationally by 247Sports. Michigan and Ohio State remain the only Big Ten teams ranked in the top 10, sitting pretty at Nos. 2 and 10, respectively.

One recruit we haven't talked about for some time is cornerback Troy Vincent. Penn State remains the overwhelming favorite to land the son of the former Badger great, but Wisconsin is not giving up anytime soon. UW has been continuing to make a hard push at Vincent, who will decide on his top five in late June.
