Wisconsin football's recruiting strategy focuses on quality over quantity, aiming to spend individual time with prospects during junior days. The first day was impacted by a snowstorm, resulting in commitments from three out of the four attendees. The next two days featured a limited invitation list, incluing committed and uncommitted players, with the coaching staff making strong impressions on defensive recruits. Torin Pettaway, a standout defensive lineman, shared his positive experience and expressed Wisconsin as his top choice. Edge rusher Jayden Woods and linebacker Austin Alexander also spoke highly of the program following their visits.

By the Numbers
  • First junior day was supposed to include 10 recruits, but only 4 attended due to a snowstorm
  • Wisconsin received commitments from 3 out of the 4 attendees on the first junior day
  • More than 30 scholarship offers for Jayden Woods
  • 24 scholarship offers considered by Austin Alexander
State of Play
  • Wisconsin's recruiting strategy emphasizes individual attention and limited invitations
  • Positive impressions from defensive recruits Torin Pettaway, Jayden Woods, and Austin Alexander
  • Strong competition from other schools for the uncommitted recruits
What's Next

Wisconsin aims to maintain its recruiting momentum and convert the positive impressions into commitments from the remaining uncommitted prospects.

Bottom Line

Wisconsin's strategy of quality over quantity is paying off with commitments from top defensive prospects and positive feedback from uncommitted recruits, positioning the program well for future success in recruiting.
