Caleb Kinlaw, a one-time Georgia Tech commit, joins Taiwan Deal as half of the backfield tandem in Wisconsin's 2014 recruiting class. He committed to the Yellow Jackets in July but once now-former running backs coach Thomas Hammock came along, he was able to secure the flip. Considered the nation's No. 38 running back by 247 Sports' composite rankings, Kinlaw is widely considered a sleeper that could be a vital part of the post-Melvin Gordon Wisconsin backfield.
