Well, we didn't have to wait long for Wisconsin's next commitment. After Sunday brought a commitment from Jon Dietzen, Wednesday gave the Badgers their next addition to the offensive line.

Northville, Michigan, offensive tackle David Moorman was very excited when the Badgers offered him last Thursday. It was to the point where the conventional wisdom turned sharply in the Badgers' favor for his commitment, and they were going to be in there to the end. By Wednesday, the Badgers had Moorman secured as their second offensive lineman in the 2015 class, as well as their second four-star lineman in four days.

Moorman is one of those linemen who has the frame to add muscle on his game without losing his lateral agility, which you can see displayed on his Hudl profile. He had offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Minnesota and Northern Illinois, and also received interest from Dartmouth as well as Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State and Tennessee.

Jeff Genyk and T.J. Woods are credited with Moorman's commitment, and the expectation is that the Badgers will still go after at least two more linemen for this class. Moorman is the first lower-peninsula Michigan commit to Wisconsin since Zac Matthias (Hemlock) joined the Badgers as part of the 2009 recruiting class.

"When you think of Wisconsin, you think of offensive lineman," he said. "They're the best offensive lineman school in the world."
