The Badgers had a great haul, landing five four-star prospects, including the top two players in their own state, linebacker Vince Biegel and running back Vonte Jackson. As usually, there is talent on the offensive line coming in. Guard Dan Voltz had offers from Alabama, Michigan and others before choosing the Badgers.

Quarterback Bart Houston was a huge coup, coming over from California. The four-star prospect has a chance to compete early and certainly will be a factor over the next few years. One potential sleeper in the class is cornerback Reggie Mitchell, a multi-talented Pittsburgh athlete who played quarterback in high school.

Wisconsin is famous for big offensive linemen and on Signing Day, they landed Whiteland, Indiana tackle Jake Meador, who goes 6?6, 300-lbs.
