The first round of junior day visits couldn’t have gone much better for Luke Fickell and the Wisconsin Badgers football program. 

Three of the four 2025 recruits that set foot on campus have verbally committed to the Badgers following their trip to Madison.

Four-star defensive back Jaimier Scott, three-star safety Cody Haddad, and linebacker Brenden Anes are now in the fold. 

With the next round of junior day visits set to take place during the first weekend of February, Wisconsin football will have another chance to try and close things out with a top-of-the-board recruiting target. 

Wisconsin Football to Host 2025 Safety Jussiah Williams-West on Visit

A source has confirmed to that the Wisconsin football program will have 2025 three-star safety Jussiah Williams-West from Dayton, Ohio, on campus for this next round of junior day visits.

The 6-foot-3, 180-pound safety currently holds scholarship offers from Kentucky, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Syracuse, Indiana, Toledo, Ohio, Purdue, and several others.

According to the composite recruiting rankings, Williams-West is listed as the No. 42 safety in the country and the No. 21 player in Ohio.

He took an unofficial visit to Madison to check out the Wisconsin football team when the Badgers played Ohio State and is someone this staff wants to close.

It’s worth noting that Colin Hitschler, who recently left to take a job at Alabama, was initially the lead recruiter for Williams-West. However, his interest in the Wisconsin Badgers hasn’t waned.

According to a source, Cincinnati, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Minnesota are also seen as programs in the mix for Williams-West’s services. Still, Wisconsin football has a leg up and might be the team to beat.

Luke Fickell and his staff currently have the No. 10 recruiting class in the country and have done an excellent job identifying players and closing those recruitments early; I’d keep an eye on this.
