Sometimes it can be a matter of who you know.

Now, we aren't certain as to how much input Jakarrie Washington had in the recruiting process of three-star safety Lubern Figaro, but tonight Figaro became the Badgers' 14th commitment in the first full class under Gary Andersen after his visit with the Badgers this weekend. Wisconsin beat out Boston College, Michigan State, Syracuseand Vanderbilt for the commitment of Figaro, and the 6-foot-1, 185-pound safety decided after his first visit that Madison was the place for him.

In fact, it may have been Badger Nation that sealed the deal...

Figaro joins Tampa-area safety Austin Hudson in the 2014 recruiting class and had five sacks and three tackles as a junior, showing himself to be a playmaker in both the offensive and defensive backfields
