Wisconsin football offers 2023 three-star DL Rodney Lora

Madison, Wis. – In the wake of Jamel Howard’s de-commitment, Jim Leonhard and his coaching staff extended a scholarship offer to 2023 three-star defensive lineman Rodney Lora out of Woodberry Forest, Virginia, on Thursday. 

Per the 247Sports Composite, he’s the No. 883 overall prospect in the 2024 recruiting class, the No. 98 DL in the country, and the No. 21 player in Virginia.

The 6-foot-4, 270-pound DL currently holds offers from Michigan, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, Rutgers, Virginia, Boston College, Buffalo, Due, Indiana, North Carolina, Old Dominion, Temple, Vanderbilt, West Virginia, and several others. 

Lora, a standout at Woodberry Forest High School, originally announced his commitment to the University of Virginia on June 24. However, he had a change of heart and re-opened his recruitment at the end of September. Now there is some real traction with UW and its coaching staff.

Wisconsin’s 2023 recruiting class currently sits at 11 scholarship players, one of which is a defensive lineman. UW is expected to take between two and three DLs in this class.

The Virginia native announced his scholarship offer from the University of Wisconsin via his Twitter account:
