Madison, Wis. – After multiple phone conversations, the Wisconsin Badgers football staff offered a certain 2025 four-star recruit a scholarship to attend the prestigious school.

Byron Louis of Plantation, Florida, received a scholarship from the Wisconsin Badgers. Louis is a four-star running back in the 2025 recruiting class. Currently, Louis ranks as the 17th overall player in the state and the 12th overall running back. The recruit has also made an appearance as the 130th overall player in the recruiting class.
In 12 games played this season, Louis recorded 55 carries for 439 yards and 11 touchdowns. The running back also had a long run of 25 yards while averaging 36.6 yards per game on the ground. Louis is not very active in the passing game, but did record two receptions for 18 yards this past season. As a freshman a season ago, Louis recorded 186 yards and two touchdowns in six games.
The sophomore running back is a physical runner with exceptional carrier vision. Between his balance and foot skills, it is also incredibly hard to bring Louis down. Walking onto the field at 6-foot-1-inch, 205 pounds, Louis has a quick burst of speed that allows him to get set before his defenders. The running back aims for his defenders and initiates contact often as he is not afraid to run into another player.
Louis is a talented running back, but still needs to develop in the passing game before reaching the next level. The balance of speed and power is enough to gain substantial yards, but may not be enough against tough college defenses. Regardless, Louis still has another two years of preparation before his reaches the collegiate level of play.
Wisconsin Badgers Football: 2025 Four-Star Byron Louis Embodies Wisconsin
The talented running back Byron Louis is still new to his recruiting process. Louis has conducted two visits so far while receiving nearly 30 offers. The first two visits the recruit made were to in-state University of Central Florida and University of Miami (FL). Each visit was conducted earlier this year, right after Louis had completed his high school season. The recruit should begin to take more visits in the near future as he fields more scholarship offers.
In two seasons, Louis has not been the feature back for his school as he played behind Miami Hurricanes signee Mark Fletcher. Fletcher, a fellow four-star recruit, recorded 1934 yards and 23 touchdowns on the ground. Much like Fletcher, the physical running back Louis is bound to get his fair share of carries in a year. Another breakout season from Louis could certainly result in five-star consideration.
For the Wisconsin Badgers, landing Louis would not just be a boost to their 2025 recruiting class but also to the program as a whole. Louis is a fantastic runner that falls in line with the tradition of the position in Madison. Wisconsin football has long been known for striking fear into opponents with their running backs. With the right practice and proper coaching, the running back could transform into a monster of a player at the next level.
Wisconsin football will have their hands full trying to land Byron Louis as time progresses given his amazing talent.
