Midwest Hot 100 – UW interest

The Wisconsin football program has already made a significant splash on the Midwest recruiting scene, receiving verbal commitments from the No. 2 prospect in the region, offensive tackle Josh Oglesby of St. Francis (Wis.) High School, and the No. 58 prospect in the region, Middleton (Wis.) wide receiver Nick Toon. Who else are the Badgers in the mix for?

The Badgers are involved in the recruitment of a great number of the prospects that make up Scout.com's Midwest Hot 100, and are among the favorites of No. 1 John Clay, a tailback at Racine (Wis.) Park, and No. 3 Martez Wilson a DE/OLB at Chicago's Simeon High School. Wisconsin already has secured verbals from No. 2 Josh Oglesby and No. 58 Nick Toon.
