Visitor Preview: Wisconsin Spring Game

Gary Andersen's first spring game in Madison will have several prospects with Badger offers attending and a few others who are in contention for one.


Gaelin Elmore | 2014 | TE | Somerset (Wisc.)
Elmore is one of the in-state "Super Six," and has said that Nebraska currently leads but he would not be surprised if this visit pulled the Badgers even or put them at the top of his list. He has said a decision is not imminent, but he does not plan on dragging things out either.

Billy Hirschfeld | 2014 | DE | Hartland Arrowhead (Wisc.)
This is shaping up to be a Husker-Badger battle as the in-state prospect visited Nebraska recently and said they will be a school at the top of his list. Now it's Wisconsin's turn. Positives? The Badgers have his teammate George Panos already committed and he fits the new defense.

Austin Kafentzis | 2015 | QB | Sandy Jordan (Utah)
An early offer for the Badgers, Kafentzis, a dual-threat who can make plays on the run, has ties to the staff from their Utah State days. He says he is planning on making a decision towards the end of the year despite being only a sophomore.

Troy Vincent Jr. | 2014 | CB | Baltimore Gilman (Md.)
A four-star prospect with a bevy of offers, Vincent Jr. is a legacy recruit for the Badgers. He has offers from across the country and is planning to get out and take officials before making a decision.

Frank Ragnow | 2014 | OT | Chanhassen (Minn.)
Currently with offers from USF, Minnesota and Florida State, the 6'5, 280-pound prospect has been to Wisconsin previously and indicated that a Badger offer would put them in contention.

Reid Travis | 2014 | QB | Minneapolis De La Salle (Minn.)
Also a top basketball prospect, Travis has major offers in both sports. His 6'7 frame is intriguing as a football prospect. He has gridiron offers from Iowa, Minnesota, Rutgers and Boston College.

Ricardo Johnson | 2014 | QB | Cretin Derham Hall (Minn.)
Johnson visited last weekend with his teammates and is back again in Madison this week. He plans to camp at Wisconsin this summer, where he hopes to impress the staff.

Harrison Phillips | 2014 | DE | Omaha Millard West (Neb.)
A hard charging 6'4, 240-pound junior, Phillips has a handful of offers already and is hearing from several other major programs including home state Nebraska. Wisconsin has been steadily showing interest and this visit to Madison will move things forward in his recruitment with them.
