The Wisconsin football program is gearing up for what could be one of their most crucial recruiting weekends of the off-season on June 2.

The Badgers will be hosting several high-priority prospects on official visits, hoping to push the pendulum in their favor and land commitments from some of the top high school football players on its board.

The Badgers traditionally have a history of success when it comes to recruiting in the month of June. In fact, players like Jace Arnold, Jordan Mayer, AJ Tisdell, Joe Brunner, Curt Neal, Barrett Nelson, Tommy McIntosh, Cade Yacamelli, and JT Seagreaves from the last two classes put a bow on their respective recruitments in June.

As it stands, Wisconsin football has eight players committed in the 2024 recruiting cycle and currently has the No. 21 class in the country, per the 247Sports composite rankings.

But there’s still work to be done, and the June 2nd recruiting weekend could be crucial in helping the Badgers close the deal with some of their top targets. By the end of June, we’ll likely see that number take a significant jump if history is any indicator.

Wisconsin Badgers Known Official Visitor List for June 2

Some headliner prospects expected to be in attendance for the massive official visit weekend include four-star wide receiver I’Marion Stewart, four-star running back Darrion Dupree, four-star cornerback Miles Lockhart, and four-star offensive tackle Kevin Heywood.

All four players have received scholarship offers from some of the country’s top programs, but Wisconsin football hopes to convince them that Madison is the best place for them to develop as players.

In addition to those four players, the Badgers will also be hosting many other key prospects, including four-star edge rusher Dominic Nichols, three-star defensive lineman Dillan Johnson, three-star edge rusher Anelu Lafaele, three-star defensive lineman Hank Weber, three-star safety Rafael Dunn, and Wisconsin football commits Kahmir Prescott and Landon Gauthier will also be in attendance.

Among the recruits on campus, it’s worth noting that Luke Fickell and his coaching staff are in a strong position with several players that could be close to pulling the trigger on a verbal commitment.

Final Thoughts on Massive Wisconsin Football Recruiting Weekend 

From this impressive group, I believe that numerous prospects have the potential to be impact players at the college level, and the Badgers are hoping to convince them to become part of the Wisconsin football family.

I, for one, am excited to see what Luke Fickell and his coaching staff can accomplish during Wisconsin’s “sellable” summer months to recruits.

One of the key selling points for the Badgers is their track record of success both on and off the field. Wisconsin has consistently been among the top programs in the Big Ten Conference and has produced several NFL players in recent years. But the Badgers also strongly emphasize academics and have one of the country’s highest graduation rates for football players (take notes, parents).

The June 2nd recruiting weekend will allow the Badgers to showcase everything that makes their program special. Wisconsin is on the right track to becoming a force to be reckoned with in the coming years, from world-class facilities to a passionate fan base, in addition to its talented coaching staff.

If the Badgers can land commitments from some of the top prospects who will attend on June 2, it could be a massive boost for the program.

Wisconsin football has a chance to build something special in the coming years under the new regime, and the success of this recruiting weekend could be a step closer to making that happen.
