Madison, WI — There’s a short list of states that consistently produce some of the best players in the country.  Year in and year out – talent hubs like Texas essentially serve as incubators for tomorrow’s stars, making the Lone star state a popular travel destination for the nation’s top programs and Wisconsin is no exception. 

This past recruiting cycle the Badgers scored several key commitments on offense.  First, the Badgers got hot shot pro-style QB, Jack Coan and to ensure their new, young gunslinger would be armed to the teeth with wide receiving weaponry, they headed to the football capital of America to persuade Cade Green and Emmet Perry to make Madison their new home.

To make matters even rosier for Wisconsin, they didn’t just win over the hearts and minds of two high-profile wide receivers, they landed commitments from two championship caliber players that ended their high school careers winning Texas state titles on one of football’s biggest stages – AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.

By all accounts, the Badgers are stacked with enough talent to make another run for the B1G championship.  And landing players like Perry and Green, who have experience taking home hardware might be what puts Wisconsin over the top and allows them to finish what they started last season.
