Two in-state recruits, Rob Booker and Donovan Harbour, also came to Madison on Saturday. Harbour is the number one ranked player in Wisconsin, while Booker is the fifth-ranked player in the state for the 2024 class, according to the 247Sports Composite.

The Badgers offered three-star defensive lineman Xavier Porter on Monday evening. The Tampa, Florida native took to Twitter to announce the offer.

According to the 247Sports Composite, Porter is the 53rd-ranked defensive lineman in the 2024 class. On top of that, he’s the 90th-ranked player in Florida.

Porter holds over 20 offers. Some notable schools include Michigan, Tennessee, Auburn, and Oklahoma. It will be a challenging recruitment for Wisconsin with the litany of offers Porter holds.
