Jordan Kohout (four stars)
6-foot-4, 265 pounds
Waupun H.S. – Waupun, Wisconsin
A unanimous first team all conference defensive end, Kohout had 56 total tackles (10 for loss), four sacks, one fumble recovery and a 32-yard touchdown Lauded for his speed off the ball, Kohout earned team MVP honors for his ability to take on and beat multiple blockers, a solid motor and will not give up on plays.
A talented defensive end at Waupun, Wisconsin will most likely move Kohout to the tackle position. As a result, he must work on his ability to play with leverage and add more weight and strength. Either way, the Badgers have a talented guy on their front line.
Status: Offered Scholarship – Wisconsin verbal
Lendell Buckner (four stars)
6-foot-3, 325 pounds
Leo Catholic H.S. – Chicago, Illinois
He's received offers from Colorado, Michigan State, Toledo and Wisconsin after his big junior season, making 126 tackles and 18 sacks. Bucknell did travel to East Lansing for Junior Day and told Scout's Joe Torok that he ‘loved the atmosphere' and that ‘MSU is really on his radar.'
In addition to East Lansing, Buckner is hoping to visit Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Wisconsin still has a chance at Buckner, as he recently said about his verbal commitment: "I see a verbal commit as — it's definitely an interest in the school I want to attend."
Status: Offered Scholarship – Medium to Low Interest
Aaron McCord (one star)
6-foot-4, 270 pounds, 5.0 40-yard time
Crockett Vocational Tech H.S. – Detroit, Michigan
McCord has two offers (Ball State and Central Michigan) and has drawn interest from Iowa, Michigan, Ohio State, USC and Wisconsin, but the school recruiting him the hardest is Michigan State. The Spartans have visited his high school in Detroit, gone to junior day in East Lansing and had a successful camp at a combine camp in Columbus. Michigan, however, has made a late push and has drawn considerable interest as of late.
Whether Wisconsin offers of not, it sounds like it will be tough getting McCord out of Michigan.
