Jammar Crane (6-1, 195, 4.60), OLB, Garland, Texas (Garland HS) – a top-notch player at a position of need for Wisconsin, Crane gave a soft verbal in November but appears to be wavering after visits to Kansas and Colorado State. Crane, though, said he was excited for his trip to Wisconsin. The visit will decide whether or not the Badgers receive his services. If Crane enjoys the trip more than he did his visit to Kansas than Wisconsin will likely land a firm verbal in the coming week.

 

Sean Bailey (5-10 ½ , 170, 4.40), CB, Fort Worth, Texas (Dunbar HS) – Considered the No. 100 player in Texas according to the TheInsiders and one of the top 75 players in the Dallas-Fort Worth area according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.  Bailey was scheduled to visit Kansas last week (Dec. 12) and is also interested in Missouri. He was a prep teammate of Badger freshman receiver Ernest Mason last year.

 

Bryant Creamer (6-3, 185, 4.40), WR, Chicago, Ill. (Simeon Vocational HS) – One of the most prolific receivers in the country and one of the best players in Illinois. Creamer tallied 14 touchdown catches as a junior and a gaudy 23 as a senior. He also caught 67 passes for more than 1,300 yards this season. Creamer has taken official visits to Notre Dame and Illinois and also plans to visit Virginia on Jan. 23.

 

Terrence Nunn (6-0, 180, 4.50), WR, Houston, Texas (Cypress Falls HS) – Perhaps the most intriguing expected official visitor this weekend. Nunn committed to Nebraska in late August, but the fallout from the Cornhuskers' dismissal of coach Frank Solich has sent Nunn on the visit trail, with a stop in Wisconsin. Prior to his commitment to Nebraska, Oklahoma State was also pursuing Nunn, who had 34 catches for 471 yards and five touchdowns this season.

 

Brandon Jackson (6-0, 210, 4.55), RB, Houston, Texas (Washington B T HS) – Jackson had 1,126 yards and 14 touchdowns this season and has narrowed his decision down to Wisconsin and Arizona, where he will visit Jan. 6. He also has scholarship offers from Houston and Stephen F. Austin. Jackson has a good strength-speed-athleticism combination. He ran for 700 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior on just 50 carries.

 

Nick Patterson (6-2, 200, 4.52), DB, Florissant, Mo. (Hazelwood Central HS) – One of the top-rated defensive backs in the Midwest, Patterson could play safety or corner in college. He is rumored to be leaning toward Ohio State but is still expected to take visits to Wisconsin, UCLA (Jan. 9) and Notre Dame (Jan. 16). Was a first-team all-state selection as a receiver.

 

Corey Thompson (6-1, 165, 4.40), WR, Atlanta, Ga. (Douglass HS) – Wisconsin, Wake Forest, Duke and Auburn lead for this speedy receiver. He plans on making a decision after his visits are complete. Thompson took a trip to Wake Forest last weekend and is also set to visit Duke Jan. 9. Through 11 games this season, Thompson had 43 receptions and seven touchdowns.

 

Michael Jones (6-3, 190, 4.41), ATH, Sugar Land, Texas (Stephan F Austin HS) – Jones, a star quarterback, is being recruited primarily as a wide receiver. Jones passed for nearly 2,000 yards and ran for more than 600 this season. He is also considering Oklahoma State (Dec. 5 visit), Arizona State (Dec. 12), Missouri and Michigan State among others. Some reports have Jones visiting Missouri this weekend rather than Wisconsin.
