The Wisconsin Badgers have been one of the early teams to showcase interest in 2025 athlete Kaiser Williams, who is a native of Naperville, Illinois.

Williams, a 6’4, 185-pound hybrid defensive back, is being evaluated at outside linebacker with the Badgers, rather than in the secondary.

There is a mutual interest between the two sides, as Williams has visited Wisconsin three times over the past year, as the Badgers have become his most-visited school early in his recruitment.

While the Badgers struggled against Northwestern during Williams’s last visit, that didn’t change the interest for the defensive back in the prominent school.

“My last visit at Wisconsin was against Northwestern which was a rough game, but I enjoy Wisconsin everytime I’m there,” Williams shared to Bucky’s 5th Quarter. “They are very organized and you can easily tell they mean business. They have a great brotherhood too, you can constantly see teammates bringing each other up and play for each other.”

“I have a very high interest in Wisconsin, they’re my most visited school with 3 visits in under a year and I could definitely see myself playing there.”

Williams has primarily spoken with outside linebackers coach Matt Mitchell, who noted the athlete’s unique size and speed as the reasons why he’d be a good fit with the Badgers at outside linebacker.

The Illinois native was immediately drawn to the school upon his first visit, as he got an inside view at the facilities, staff, and academics, which really encouraged him about Wisconsin.

“It was great,” Williams said about his first visit. “My first time there was an amazing experience. Seeing how everything was ran and how they operate academics was really well. Really had you questioning what they didn’t have.”

Entering his senior season, Williams dubbed Wisconsin as the frontrunner for his recruitment, although he has yet to receive an offer yet.
