Wisconsin Football: Remaining 2021 Recruits to Know

Wisconsin Football’s 2021 recruiting class continues to move up in the national rankings and here are some uncommitted prospects to keep your eyes on moving forward.

After Wisconsin Football’s 2020 class set program records with their highest national ranking in the Online Rankings Era and five 4-star recruits, the 2021 class appears to be on their way to breaking both of those marks.

Over the last month or so, the Badgers have received five new verbal commitments that have helped them move up in the national rankings. Two of those commits, Jack Pugh and T.J. Bollers, are 4-star prospects and they join J.P. Benzschawel, Riley Mahlman, and Hunter Wohler as 4-star recruits who had already committed.

Additionally, Wisconsin would receive verbal commitments from 3-star defensive ends Darryl Peterson and Mike Jarvis, along with the most recent commit, 3-star cornerback Ricardo Hallman.

As a result, the 2021 Wisconsin Football class is now ranked 12th in the country and 3rd in the Big Ten Conference – behind only Ohio State and Michigan – by 247Sports with 15 commitments up to this point.

And considering that we are still about six months away from National Signing Day, more commitments are going to follow. But who should Badger fans be paying attention to in the coming months?

Well, below is a list of prospects who have received scholarship offers from the Badgers and have Wisconsin as one of their top schools. Now, keep in mind that this isn’t all the offers that Wisconsin has out there as some recruits have already committed elsewhere or the Badgers just simply are not one of the final choices.

So courtesy of 247Sports, below you will find the remaining prospects that have Wisconsin either at the top or near the top of their lists, along with their national ranking and where they are from.

Eric McAlister / 3-Star / 120th WR / Azle, TX

Kudos to head coach Paul Chryst and his entire staff as each Wisconsin recruiting class continues to outdo the one before it. And the 2021 class appears to be no different. Although already stout, a few more additions from the group above would certainly help solidify the Badgers’ 2021 class as one of the better classes in the nation.
