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.
