Wisconsin Football News Roundup
It’s been a busy few days for the Wisconsin football program. Don’t worry; BadgerNotes has you covered with all the latest UW news you may have missed.
Joe Thomas is a Hall of Famer
A Wisconsin football legend is headed to Canton. Former Badgers offensive lineman Joe Thomas was selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Thursday evening.
Thomas, who played for Wisconsin from 2003-2006, is among the most decorated Badgers in program history. He was a two-time All-American, an Outland Trophy winner, and a two-time First-Team All-Big Ten honoree.
In his NFL career with the Browns, Thomas played 10,363 consecutive snaps, a record that will likely never be broken. Additionally, Thomas earned 10 Pro Bowl nominations and was an eight-time All-Pro.
Thomas is widely considered one of the best offensive linemen of all time, and he certainly made Wisconsin proud. Congratulations Joe!
Wisconsin football offers three-star offensive lineman
Wisconsin dished out a new offer in the 2024 recruiting cycle on Thursday. Three-star offensive lineman Mark Schroller took to Twitter to announce the Badgers offered him.
After a great conversation with @CoachBicknell and @CullenLCasey, I am extremely excited and grateful to have received an offer to the University of Wisconsin! @diablocjohnson @TarquinStephen1 @AllegianceOL @GregBiggins @mikehuntley63 @ChadSimmons_ @missionfootball @adamgorney pic.twitter.com/qKsDPzaPFi

According to 247Sports, the 6-foot-6, 270-pound lineman is the No. 47 tackle in the class and the No. 61 player in California.
The Badgers are the second Big Ten team to offer Schroller, with the Indiana Hoosiers throwing their hat in the ring last year. Schroller also holds offers from Arizona, Arizona State, and Boston College.
The Badgers already have three committed prospects in the 2024 cycle, two of which are four-star prospects. Now they’re trying to lure in what could be another solid addition to their offensive front.

The Badger commit had a big senior season in 2022. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound receiver hauled in 61 catches for over 1,300 yards and 22 touchdowns for Bishop Gorman.
Kekahuna was one of the Wisconsin football program’s biggest surprises during the offseason when he flipped his commitment from Arizona. He’ll head to Madison for spring ball, joining a loaded receiver room.
