Admist one of the biggest games at Camp Randall Stadium over the last few years, the Badgers will bring in two recruits for the Penn State game Oct. 5.
Quarterback Joe Jon Finley from Arlington, Tex. and Ernest Mason, a wide receiver from Fort Worth, Tex., will make the trip to Madison that weekend.
Finley, a 6-6, 220-pound senior, likes the Badgers because they are recruiting him primarily as a quarterback. Most schools that have offered Finley would are recruiting him at tight end.
Mason, one of the fastest players in the nation, is a 5-11, 176-pound stud on a team (Dunbar) with 6-7 Division I players. The Badgers have also offered his teammates, tailback Michael Turner and safety Terion Caldwell. Coach Barry Alvarez and Quarterbacks Coach (and Texas recruiting contact) Jeff Horton visited Dunbar last spring to evaluate all of the prospects at the school.
Mason ran a 10.4 100-meter in the USA Nationals Track & Field Championships two years ago. His offers include Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Alabama, Arkansas, LSU, Colorado, Purdue, Notre Dame, TCU and Baylor.
