Strickland's Skills Sell Wisconsin

Being selected with the receivers they offer in the 2015 recruiting cycle, Wisconsin couldn't pass up Dallas Skyline junior wide receiver Carlos Strickland.

Dallas Skyline junior wide receiver Carlos Strickland could be labeled as one of the hottest players in the nation.

Not only does he sit as the No. 10 wide out and a four-star recruit by Scout, the highly-touted Texan holds offers from Alabama, California, Clemson, Illinois, LSU, North Texas, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, SMU, TCU, Texas Tech, UCLA and UNLV.

He added another offer to his long list of suitors when Wisconsin extended an offer out to him last week, one that he wasn't expecting.

"I received the offer via phone call and I was kind of shocked that I was offered so soon because I just started talking to them," Strickland told BadgerNation. "They were mainly telling me about how they're only taking one receiver for the 2015 class and how I'm a perfect match for the offense."

The 6-4, 195-pound Strickland also didn't deny that the Badgers getting verbal commitments from three-star dual-threat quarterbacks D.J. Gillins and Austin Kafentzis the last two recruiting cycles was impressive to a receiver with NFL aspirations.

"They have had some pretty good talent coming of the quarterback position," said Strickland. "I think it is a really good school."

Strickland is interested in taking a visit to Madison, but is in no rush of making any major decision.

"I have not really narrowed down my visits yet," said Strickland. "I don't have a top list yet. I've just been letting the offers roll in."
