Luke Fickell and the Wisconsin Badgers football program will open its doors to one of their 2026 RB targets for a recruiting visit in the spring.

Jazz Coleman, an Indiana native, took to social media to announce that he would make his way to Madison in March, his second trip to UW. 

“I feel great to get back on campus in Madison,” Coleman told Badgernotes. “Last time I was there, they treated me like family. I felt this is somewhere I could move onto in the next chapter in my life on and off the field.”

Coleman has remained in touch with the Badgers staff since his first visit, with RB coach Devon Spalding taking the lead in his recruitment. 

“You can definitely tell that everyone on their staff is pulling the same way. There’s a clear-cut goal and emphasis,” Coleman said. “I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the RB room more in-depth, the general campus, and coach Spalding go to work.”

As a sophomore at Speedway High School in Indianapolis, Coleman recorded 888 yards and eight touchdowns on 203 carries and tacked on 29 catches for 253 yards and two receiving touchdowns. He also took snaps at outside linebacker in his second season on varsity, logging 122 total tackles, 12.0 TFLs, three sacks, and two pass breakups. 

The 5-foot-11, 200-pound RB flashes on film with his elusiveness and speed as a ball carrier. On the flip side, Coleman possesses twitchiness, closing speed, and physicality at the point of attack. 
Coleman has yet to pick up a scholarship offer, but he’s hearing from several programs all over the map. 

“Louisville, West Virginia, Purdue, Notre Dame, and MAC (schools),” Coleman said when asked what schools have kept in contact thus far.

It’s still very early in his recruitment, but it will be worth monitoring how the relationship between the Wisconsin football program and Coleman progresses from here.
