It’s been a busy few days for the Wisconsin football program. BadgerNotes has you covered with a roundup of all the latest UW news you may have missed.

According to the 247Sports Composite, Marshall is the 105th-ranked player in 2024. On top of that, he’s the No. 8 running back in the class and the No. 2 player in Ohio.
The 5-foot-11, 193-pound running back was named the Gatorade Player of the Year in Ohio in 2022 after rushing for 1,961 yards and 30 touchdowns. Wisconsin will have a tough recruitment battle against Michigan and Ohio State to land the four-star running back.

UW fans will have their first chance to preview what’s to come in the Luke Fickell era. However, spring ball this year will be a bit different.
April 22nd’s event will be an open practice featuring a scrimmage rather than a full game. Regardless, fans will have a chance to get the first look at Wisconsin’s 2023 recruits and transfers.

The 6-foot-3, 320-pound nose tackle de-committed from Wisconsin in November following the coaching shakeup. A few months later, Howard returned to UW under the new staff.
According to the 247Sports Composite, Howard is the No. 73 defensive lineman in the 2023 class and the No. 15 player in Illinois.
Wisconsin put the cherry on top of its 2023 recruiting class with one of its top targets. Luke Fickell is building something special, and it seems that players are taking notice.
