2009 high school quarterbacks that Wisconsin has shown legitimate interest in
Jon Budmayr (three stars)
6-foot-1, 194 pounds, 4.7 40-yard time
Marian Central Catholic H.S. – Woodstock, Illinois
Budmayr was Wisconsin's fourth overall commitment and first since February's Junior Day.
Considered one of the top quarterbacks in the Midwest, Budmayr already has a state championship title under his belt and threw for over 2,000 yards and 15 touchdowns last season. Budmayr received his first offer from Wisconsin last June after the Badgers saw him perform at Purdue's Nike Camp and Wisconsin never lost contact.
Status: Verbal Commitment – May 20
Charlie Goro (one star)
6-foot-3, 193 pounds
Maine South H.S. – Park Ridge, Illinois
Goro has no scholarship offers, but has visited a variety of schools from all over country, including Big Ten schools Illinois, Iowa, Purdue and Wisconsin. Goro said that the Fighting Illini have been recruiting him the hardest but he made time during his spring to travel up to Wisconsin for a Saturday spring practice.
Through the end of April, Goro, in addition to Wisconsin, has made unofficial visits to Illinois, Iowa, Northwestern and Purdue. When the Nation last caught up with him, his recruiting had gone rather quiet and he hopes to get an offer sometime during the school season, although it's unlikely that the Badgers will extend one.
Status: No Scholarship – Little Interest
Clayton Moore (three stars)
6-foot-2, 205 pounds, 4.8 40-yard time
Louisville H.S. – Louisville, Mississippi
Moore's top characteristics are his leadership qualities and his athletic ability, two abilities that distinguish top quarterbacks on the college level. Add in his numbers from his junior season and Moore can beat the opposition with his arm or his legs.
After Badger Nation last talked to him, Moore went on a visit to Oklahoma State (coming away impressed with the OSU' facilities and coaches) and had a solid performance in Mississippi's three-day camp; two schools that offered him soon after. By the end of June, Moore's 18+ offers were down between the Cowboys and the Rebels. By the end of June, Moore committed to his home state university (Ole Miss) for 2009.
Status: Offered Scholarship – Ole Miss Verbal
Dan Burkett (one star)
6-foot-2, 190 pounds, 4.90 40-yard time
Neenah H.S. – Neenah, Wisconsin
Burkett is one of the top quarterback prospects in Wisconsin and has performed at various high-profile high school camps, including the U.S. Army Junior Combine (invitation only) and Air & QBU Camp in Arizona, California and Chicago. Participating in the Badger Sport/New Level Combine in Akron, Burkett was selected to the honorable mention team by Scout's Bob Lictenfels.
Currently not holding any scholarship offers, Burkett has been receiving mail from Alabama, Louisville, Northwestern, Purdue and Wisconsin, although it's unclear which school, if any, are going to extend a scholarship offer before Burkett's senior season.
