Wisconsin Football Recruiting: Junior Day Highlights

Published

on

Wisconsin Badgers

Wisconsin football hosted fifteen high-school recruits this past weekend. Thirteen of the 15 are prospects for the 2024 recruiting class. The other two are 2025 prospects. Following the visits, head coach Luke Fickell and his staff earned one commitment and extended three scholarship offers.

Badgers Receive Record-Breaking Commitment From 4-Star Tight End

Grant Stec, a four-star recruit according to the 247Sports composite rankings, committed after visiting Madison this past weekend. He is the highest-rated tight-end prospect to ever commit to Wisconsin. Nationally, Stec is the tenth highest-rated tight-end prospect in the 2024 class.

The Algonquin, Illinois-native measures in at 6’6″ and 220 pounds. Stec holds 15 total FBS scholarship offers. He has offers from fellow Big Ten schools, Minnesota, Illinois, Purdue, Rutgers, Penn State, and Michigan State.

In-State Offensive Lineman Earns Scholarship Offer

Derek Jensen received a scholarship offer this weekend. A three-star recruit according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, Jensen holds 12 scholarship offers. All but one of his offers come from Power Five programs. To secure his commitment, Wisconsin will have to compete with Big Ten rivals Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, Purdue, and Michigan State

Jensen, who attends Arrowhead High School in Heartland, WI, is the fourth-ranked overall player from Wisconsin in the 2024 class. The 6’6 “, 285-pound offensive lineman would be Wisconsin’s plan for the future after securing immediate help at the offensive line in the transfer portal. He is the 19th offensive lineman to receive an offer from Wisconsin in the 2024 recruiting class.

3-Star Green Bay-Native Receives Scholarship Offer

On the defensive side of the ball, Wisconsin offered a scholarship to linebacker prospect Landon Gauthier. The three-star prospect, according to 247Sports, hails from Green Bay and attends Bay Port High School.

The 6’3 “, 220-pound recruit visited Madison previously when Jim Leonhard was interim head coach. Now, Wisconsin joins five other FBS schools, including rival Minnesota, in extending a scholarship offer to Gauthier.

Notably, 247Sports insider Evan Flood put in a Crystal Ball projection for Gauthier to commit to Wisconsin shortly after his offer was announced.

2025 TE Receives First Scholarship Offer

In the 2025 recruiting class, Wisconsin jumped on tight-end prospect James Flanigan early. Flanigan, another Green Bay native, received his scholarship offer from Wisconsin during his visit this past weekend. It is his first scholarship offer from any program.

Flanigan recorded 22 receptions for 520 yards and nine touchdowns last fall for Notre Dame Academy. In the transfer portal and from traditional high-school recruiting, the Badgers continue to seek talented athletes for offensive coordinator Phil Longo’s air raid offense. Flanigan’s early offer is the latest sign that Wisconsin football is serious about providing its array of blue-chip quarterback prospects with talented receiving options.

Flanigan’s father, Jim Flanigan, was born in Green Bay, played college football at Notre Dame, and spent one season as a Green Bay Packer.

Wisconsin Football Recruiting: Badgers Offer Trending 2025 TE

Published

on

Wisconsin football tight end Clay Cundiff

Wisconsin football extended a scholarship offer to Da’Saahn Brame on Friday. The class of 2025 tight end prospect’s recruitment has heated up in the last couple of months. Although he has not yet received a rating from any of the major recruiting outlets, Brame’s athletic build suggests he will be a talented player at the next level.

Da’Saahn Brame Recruiting Profile

Brame, just a sophomore in high school, measures-in at six-foot-six-inches and 225 pounds. His long build gives him the ability to outstretch defenders with his extended catch radius. Although his blocking ability is still a work in progress from a technical aspect, Brame possesses the strength to outmatch many defenders.

The Derby, Kansas native has deep ties to the Kansas State Wildcats. His father, Da’Von, played defensive end for the Wildcats in 1996-2000. His mother, Nicky Ramage-Brame, played basketball at Kansas State during this same timeframe. In her senior year of high school, Nicky was Miss Kansas Basketball.

Da’Saahn Brame Highlight Reel

Brame has received ten FBS scholarship offers since January. All but one are from Power 5 schools. Brame’s other scholarship offers are from Michigan, Houston, Penn State, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, and UAB. Brame has an unofficial visit to Oklahoma scheduled for March 25th.

Wisconsin Football Recruiting: State of the 2025 Class

Wisconsin football has yet to secure a commitment in its 2025 recruiting class. The Badgers have extended scholarship offers to nine tight end prospects in the class.

Wisconsin Football in the Drivers Seat for Another 2024 Recruit

Madison, Wis. — Since taking over the Wisconsin football program, Luke Fickell and his coaching staff have injected some much-needed life into the Badgers, particularly on the recruiting front. 

As it stands, UW has the No. 24 ranked recruiting class in the country, currently holding commitments from four-stars Grat Stec (TE), Mabrey Mettauer (QB), and three-star tight end Rob Booker. 

Now it appears that things are quickly moving in the right direction with another 2024 prospect the Badgers coaching staff has had their eyes on. 

Wisconsin Football Picks Up Crystal Ball for 2024 OT

Earlier this week, 247Sports recruiting insider Evan Flood put in a crystal ball prediction on 2024 offensive tackle Marcus Harrison out of Hamburg, New York, to wind up with the Wisconsin football program. 

The 6-foot-8, 295-pound picked up a scholarship offer from UW back in February and has quickly made their way to the front of his list. 

Currently rated as a three-star prospect by the Rivals recruiting database, Harrison holds offers from Buffalo, Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple, West Virginia, and UW. 

You can watch his HUDL film here.

Harrison visited Madison last September under the previous coaching staff and intends to take an official visit to UW sometime in June — at which point I’d put the giant offensive tackle on commitment watch. 

“I would say Wisconsin is my number one, ” Harrison told 247Sports. “I love their style of play. They run the ball, run the ball. That’s what I want to do.”

Wisconsin football recruiting roundup

It’s been a busy few days on the recruiting front for the Wisconsin football program. Badger Notes has you covered on all the latest offers as Wisconsin continues to truck along the recruiting trail.

Owen Strebig

The Badgers handed out an in-state offer to 2025 offensive tackle Owen Strebig.

Strebig, who attends Catholic Memorial in Waukesha, joins the long list of Big Ten teams to throw their hat in the ring for the Wisconsin native. Other conference opponents to offer the 6-foot-7, 285-pound lineman include Northwestern, Iowa, Illinois, Penn State, Indiana, Minnesota, and Purdue.

Strebig will visit Madison on March 30th as the Badgers attempt to bring in a young prospect who has recently picked up plenty of interest.

Ousmane Kromah

Wisconsin football offered 2025 running back Ousmane Kromah on Monday afternoon. The Georgia native took to Twitter to announce the offer.

Kromah holds offers from high-profile programs, including Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and Colorado. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound running back has elite speed and strength, making him one of the top options in the 2025 class. 

The Badgers are up against tough competition to land the young tailback, but they have thrown their hat in the ring.

Zy’Marion Lang

The Badgers dished out another offer on Monday, this time to 2024 wide receiver Zy’Marion Lang. 

A three-star recruit out of Florida, Lang holds ten division one offers, with notable offers from schools such as Tennessee, South Carolina, Ole Miss, and Indiana.

According to the 247Sports Composite, the 6-foot-2, 170-pound receiver is the No. 74 WR in the class and the No. 81 player in Florida.

The Badgers have offered plenty of receivers in the 2024 class, and Wisconsin looks to be one of Lang’s most attractive offers as it currently stands.

Marquise Davis

Versatile athlete Marquise Davis received an offer from Wisconsin on Monday and took to Twitter to announce the offer.

Davis, an Ohio native, currently holds 17 division one offers. Other Big Ten schools have offered the 2025 athlete, including Ohio State, Penn State, and Minnesota.

Davis plays running back and linebacker for Cleveland Heights high school. His versatility makes him an intriguing option, but he’ll likely play as a running back at the collegiate level.

With a long list of offers, the Badgers will have an uphill battle to secure the young athlete. 

Daniel Freitag

Finally, Wisconsin football’s most recent offer comes in 2024 WR Daniel Freitag.

If the name rings a bell, Freitag is one of Greg Gard’s top options in his 2024 recruiting class. Freitag is a two-sport athlete, playing point guard for Jefferson Senior High School basketball and wide receiver in football.

According to the 247Sports Composite, the 6-foot-2, 175-pound receiver is a three-star recruit. UW joins Notre Dame and Minnesota as the three schools offering Freitag in basketball and football.

Now with two offers on the table from UW, will Fickell land the two-sport athlete, or will Gard? Only time will tell.
