First 2018 class rankings: Wisconsin

The Badgers had to address LB in the 2018 class, and the early returns are strong in C.J. Goetz and Mason Platter from within the state lines and ILB Jack Sanborn from Illinois.

Tom VanHaaren ESPN Staff Writer 

Wisconsin currently has eight commitments in the 2018 class. While there are no commitments ranked in the ESPN 300, the Badgers have the No. 24 ranked recruiting class in the country. The staff does have a shot with a few big name players, including ESPN 300 quarterback Carter Bradley, and could close this class out strong to improve its ranking even more.

He said it would provide an opportunity for several younger players to play. "We'll come back out and play what looks like football hopefully," Chryst said. "That's knock on wood if everything goes good this week." Wisconsin opens its 2017 at home against Utah State on Sept. 1.

How in the world does Wisconsin keep winning like this?

Wisconsin never wins national signing day and struggles to steal headlines from other marquee programs. But every fall, the Badgers are battling for a Big Ten title thanks to one simple formula.

ESPN Stats and Information  

ESPN's FPI gives just four teams better than a 50 percent chance to win every game on their schedule next season. Ohio State is the most likely team to pull off the feat, but the Buckeyes will face a stiff test against Oklahoma during that quest.
