Garrett Rand, K.J. Sails and many others will take their official visits to Wisconsin this weekend.

With Wisconsin hosting its first night game since 2012, Badgers head coach Paul Chryst and his staff are planning for a major recruiting weekend.

MADISON - The recruiting philosophy of Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst is a simple one: he wants to find smart, tough and dependable prospects - in that order - to bring into his program to carry on his school's rich tradition. With that thought in mind, fans should be excited for the prospects heading to Wisconsin's campus this weekend for the Badgers' primetime game against Hawaii. 

While there will be countless unofficial visitors in the stands, Chryst and his staff will have their hands full with nine high school prospects taking their official visits. Not only will Wisconsin host five prospects currently committed to the program, the Badgers will bring in four uncommitted prospects, including four-star defensive tackle Garrett Rand and three cornerbacks for Florida (Carlos Becker, Ke'Shan Pennamon and K.J. Sails) who could fill a major position of need in 2016.
