Ridge Point high school (TX) linebacker Cameron Townsend has a double-digit offer list - here is why…
2015 Focus: Running Backs
With a lot of Wisconsin offers out for the 2015 class, we examine which positions the Badgers need to concentrate on in the next recruiting cycle. We start with the tailback question. Barring attrition and transfers in the next year this is what the class would look like when the 2015 class would come in. Seniors: Melvin Gordon (if he doesn't declare) Juniors: Corey Clement Sophomores: Taiwan Deal, Caleb Kinlaw Freshman: Unknown The Badgers could redshirt either Deal or Kinlaw this season after moving Vonte Jackson to safety, but UW could also lose Gordon after this season. Guaranteed to take one tailback, UW might end up taking two. So who is still out there for the Badgers in 2015? Top Targets Four-Star Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas Jordan Scarlett Offers: Florida Atlantic soft verbal. Other offers from Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Ohio State, South Carolina, others. UW's Chances: Wisconsin will get Scarlett on campus this fall, as he plans to take an official to Madison along with trips to Ohio State and South Carolina. He calls his decision to Florida Atlantic "very solid," but sees himself as a good fit for the Badgers' downhill running game. Four-Star Detroit Cass Tech Mike Weber Offers: Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Tennessee and Wisconsin are the five current favorites. UW's Chances: Already having visited each of his top five schools, Weber (pictured above) plans to take officials to each of the schools before making his decision following his senior season. Weber also could be in Madison in June with some of his teammates. Three-Star Clifton (VA) Centreville A.J. Turner Offers: Boston College, Clemson, Maryland, Miami, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, South Carolina, Virginia, among others. UW's Chances: Turner said in early May that the offers from Clemson and Ohio State were standing out to him, but that he was really "pumped" about the offer from Wisconsin, which caught him off guard. Turner will come out with a list and make his visits from there; a list UW has a chance to be on. Three-Star Douglasville (GA) Alexander Mikell Lands-Davis Offers: Cincinnati, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Michigan, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Syracuse, among others. UW's Chances: Lands-Davis hasn't visited many schools this early in the process, but knows a lot about Wisconsin because of running back coach Thomas Brown, who recruited Lands-Davis at Marshall. The three-star prospect calls UW one of his top offers. Three-Star Philadelphia (PA) Imhotep Institute Nas Bonner Offers: Connecticut, Indiana, Massachusetts, Rutgers, West Virginia and Wisconsin. UW's Chances:Offered by Wisconsin in December, Bonner has been visited by Thomas Brown and the two seemingly hit it off. The Badgers are the strong favorite to land him if they accept his commitment. Three-Star Sachse (TX) High Devine Ozigbo Offers: Boise State, Boston College, Illinois, Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas, Miami, Minnesota, Mississippi State, among others. UW's Chances: Seeing his recruitment take off in May, Ozigbo says he hasn't started trimming his list of planning visits. Long Shots Four-Star Berea (KY) Madison Southern Damien Harris Offers: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Tennessee, USC, among others. UW's Chances: Harris' mom said recently that the family would like to visit Wisconsin before her son makes his decision on signing day, but it appears Michigan and Ohio State are the two front runners at the moment. Four-Star Princeton (NC) High Johnny Frasier Offers: Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, South Carolina, among others. UW's Chances: His recruitment has exploded over the last few months, but it appears that Florida State and Georgia are leading currently. Michigan, Ohio State, South Carolina and Tennessee could also play a factor in his recruitment. Four-Star Sumter (SC) Crestwood Ty'son Williams Offers: Clemson, North Carolina, Notre Dame, South Carolina and Wisconsin are the five current favorites. UW's Chances: Williams wants to make his decision before his senior season. We don't believe he has visited the Badgers yet, making UW unlikely to land him. South Carolina looks like the pick, but Georgia could sneak into the picture as well. Three-Star Hoover (AL)High Bradrick Shaw Offers: Alabama, Cincinnati, Minnesota, Mississippi State, North Carolina State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Vanderbilt and others. UW's Chances: Planning on visiting South Carolina, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt, Shaw hopes to narrow his list down sometime in the summer. Shaw says Vanderbilt and South Carolina are showing him the most interest.
