Damien Shanklin, the latest Wisconsin football EDGE offer, recently attended Notre Dame’s junior day as a Top 200 recruit. He currently holds a crystal ball prediction to land with the Fighting Irish.
The Wisconsin Badgers, who secured two edge rushers in the 2024 cycle with Thomas Heiberger and Anelu Lafaele, continue to look for athletic upgrades on the recruiting trail who have plus size and length for their new-look group of outside linebackers in Mike Tressel’s scheme.
