Madison, Wis. – Luke Fickell and the Wisconsin football program stayed hot on the recruiting trail and added another intriguing defensive talent to the 2024 recruiting class on Thursday morning. 

After picking up an offer in February and visiting Madison earlier this month, three-star safety Kahmir Prescott out of Philadelphia, Pennslyvania, announced his commitment to the Badgers over the likes of Michigan State, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, and Penn State. 

According to the 247Sports composite rankings, Prescott, a 6-foot-1, 190-pounder, is the No. 625 player in the 2024 cycle, the No. 60 safety in the country, and the No. 19 player in Pennslyvania. 

From what I’ve been told, Badgers new safeties coach Colin Hitschler worked his ass off to earn Prescott’s commitment, which is his first as a lead recruiter for the Wisconsin football program.  

As a junior at Northeast High School, Prescott registered 35 tackles, six pass deflections, four interceptions, three TFLs, and a sack, according to MaxPreps.

Scouting Report

Kahmir Prescott is an addition to the 2024 recruiting class that genuinely excites me. Given UW’s desire to play a lot of three-safety looks, landing premium athletes and stockpiling that room is a high priority. 

Prescott is a plus athlete that has impressive play recognition ability and the ball skills to pair with it that could make him a playmaker on the back end for the Wisconsin football program down the road. 

Because of his closing speed, versatility in coverage, and fluid hips, he could be an ideal candidate to focus on becoming more of a centerfielder that coach Tressel can move around his formation.

It’s also worth mentioning that Prescott hits a lot harder than I’d typically expect from someone with his lanky frame.

There is a lot to like about this pickup, and beating out so many other Big Ten programs feels like a big win for the Wisconsin coaching staff. 

The Impact of Kahmir Prescott Joining the Wisconsin Football Program 

Kahmir Prescott is commitment No. 8 for the Wisconsin football program in the 2024 recruiting cycle, joining Mabrey Mettauer, Grant Stec, Robert Booker, Derek Jensen, Thomas Heiberger, Landon Gauthier, and Kyan Berry-Johnson.

With his addition, UW now has the No. 21 recruiting class in the country, per 247Sports.

Wisconsin Football Attempting to Flip ACC Commit, Recruiting Updates, More

It’s been a busy couple of days for the Wisconsin football program, especially on the recruiting front, but fear not because BadgerNotes can help get you back up to speed with a roundup of some important Badgers news you may have missed.

Wisconsin Badgers Trying to Flip a Defensive Line Commit 

Defensive line coach Greg Scruggs and the Wisconsin football program recently offered 2024 Pittsburgh commit Francis Brewu out of Columbus, Ohio, who committed to the Panthers in March.

According to the industry-generated composite rankings, he’s the No. 88 DL in the country and the No. 39 player in Ohio.

Brewu, a 6-foot-2, 270-pound three-star defensive lineman, registered 25 tackles and 12.5 sacks for Thomas Worthington High School as a junior.

It’s unknown whether or not Wisconsin has a real chance to flip the ACC commit, but from what I’m hearing, the Badgers coaching staff is trying to get him on campus for an official visit in June.

Wisconsin Football Makes the Cut for 2024 Offensive Tackle 

Wisconsin football currently holds just one offensive line commit in the 2024 recruiting cycle: four-star OT Derek Jensen, who pledged to the Badgers in April. However, they still need several more bodies at the position and made the cut for one of their top remaining targets.

Three-star offensive tackle Ronan O’Connell announced his top three schools: Clemson, Tennessee, and Wisconsin.

According to the 247Sports composite rankings, O’Connell is the No. 39 OT in the 2024 recruiting class and the No. 13 player in Tennessee.

The 6-foot-4, 270-pound Tennessee native probably projects best at guard in college and has an official visit on the books to visit Madison on June 9.

Other Wisconsin Football News

After Wisconsin football coaches flew out to Maryland to watch 2024 cornerback Lloyd Irvin workout in person, the coaching staff extended him a scholarship offer, and he wasted no time repaying the favor, scheduling an official visit to Madison shortly after that.

Irvin, a 6-foot-3 unranked cornerback prospect who holds offers from Michigan, Maryland, Boston College, Michigan State, West Virginia, and several others, will be on campus for an official visit the weekend of June 9-11.

“They’re a big contender,” Irvin said. “This coaching staff at Wisconsin has experience getting long cornerbacks into the league and helping them develop.”

Although he’s not currently ranked in the industry-generated recruiting rankings, some major schools are involved or circling, so this could be a sneaky talent worth locking down to develop.

It would be an understatement to say that the Badgers’ defensive coaching staff has a type with their defensive backs. If you don’t have plus size and length, you can forget about getting an offer from Wisconsin at this point.

Wisconsin Football Recruiting: Badgers Trending for a Pair of Four-Star RBs

Madison, Wis. – The Wisconsin football program’s running back room is in an interesting spot approaching the 2023 season.

For the last two seasons, the two-headed monster of Braelon Allen and Chez Mellusi has handled the tailback duties. However, with Mellusi entering his final year of eligibility and Allen potentially leaving for the NFL, the future of the running back room has some question marks.

While players like Cade Yacamelli and Jackson Acker will be next in line, they’re unproven tailbacks. Because of that, finding a running back (or multiple) in the 2024 recruiting cycle is critical. 

Luckily, Wisconsin is firmly in the running to land a pair of talented four-star running backs.

Wisconsin football is firmly in the running for Darrion Dupree and Dillin Jones

The Badgers have heavily recruited in Illinois over the past few years. One of UW’s top targets in the 2024 cycle, Darrion Dupree, hails from the Chicagoland area, and Wisconsin is in a great spot to land the dynamic tailback.

According to the 247Sports Composite, Dupree is the No. 369 player in the nation, the No. 34 running back, and the No. 8 player in Illinois. 

Multiple recruiting sites have submitted predictions for Dupree to land in Madison. With Wisconsin seemingly leading the charge in his recruitment, Dupree will head to Madison for an official visit on June 2nd. He’ll be one of many prospects in attendance as a massive recruiting weekend awaits the Wisconsin football program.

Another top running back prospect, Dilin Jones, has also set an official visit date with Wisconsin. The four-star athlete will head to UW on June 16th before trips to Florida State, Virginia Tech, and Maryland. 

According to the 247Sports Composite, Jones is the No. 177 player in the nation, the No. 11 tailback, and the No. 4 player in Maryland.

The 5-foot-11, 180-pound running back was recently named the top performer at the Under Armour All-American Camp. He spoke with 247Sports’ Brian Dohn following the camp and named Wisconsin as one of the top contenders in his recruitment. 

Jones wants to decide which school he’ll attend in the summer, but no official commitment date has been announced. If Wisconsin can work some magic during his official, they could be in an excellent spot to land the standout from Good Counsel.

Final Thoughts

With Allen and Mellusi likely on the way out, Wisconsin is in a prime spot to land these prospects. One of the major selling points for the four-star tailbacks will be the potential for immediate playing time. If Fickell and company can make that a point of emphasis, I think UW has the potential to land both prospects.

If I had to give my prediction, I’d say I feel really good about UW landing Dupree. Jones will be a tougher recruiting battle, but I certainly wouldn’t count the Badgers out.

The Wisconsin football program currently holds eight commitments in the 2024 cycle.

It’s been a busy few days for the Wisconsin football program. Don’t worry; Badger Notes has you covered with the latest UW news you may have missed.

Wisconsin Badgers make the cut for 2024 4-star safety

Wisconsin made the top choices for a standout safety in the 2024 class. Four-star safety Koy Beasley announced his top four schools on Twitter.

According to the 247Sports Composite, the 6-foot, 180-pound safety is the No. 216 player in the nation, the No. 17 safety, and the No. 7 player in Ohio.

Beasley is set to make an official visit to Wisconsin on June 16th before traveling to Purdue on June 23rd. Afterward, the Ohio native will have a quick turnaround to make his decision, as he set a commitment date for June 28th.

Beasley is a standout safety with top-tier athleticism that would be an excellent fit for the program. We will see if Fickell can work some magic to bring in the sought-after athlete.

Wisconsin football offers the No. 1 player in Minnesota

The Badgers extended an offer to the top player in Minnesota on Sunday. Four-star EDGE Wyatt Gilmore took to Twitter to announce the offer.

According to 247Sports, Gilmore is the No. 499 player nationally, the No. 20 edge rusher, and the No. 1 player in Minnesota.

The four-star athlete currently holds 15 offers. Notable schools to offer a scholarship include Oregon, Iowa, Minnesota, Purdue, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Miami, Kansas State, and others.

Gilmore is a tenacious edge rusher with a quick burst off of the line and some unique block-shedding abilities. Gilmore could be a high-level impact player if Wisconsin is able to land his services.

Former Wisconsin football running back finds a new home

Former Badgers tailback Julius Davis has found a new home. The Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin native announced his commitment to Montana State on Saturday.

Davis entered the portal in April after three years with the Wisconsin football program. The former Badgers tailback was a three-star prospect coming out of high school and looked to be a player who could be an essential piece to the running back room. However, the 5-foot-10, 201-pound running back saw limited run in his time with the Badgers, posting 35 carries and 200 yards in eight career games.

Davis will have two years of remaining eligibility. With his skill set, he could finally reach his full potential at Montana State.
