Updated Scholarship Chart: Quarterbacks

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


After back-to-back years of missing out on high-end talent at Marion Central, the Badgers finally broke through with Budmayr, who gave Wisconsin his verbal commitment in early May, picking the Badgers over Arizona, Illinois, Nebraska, Northwestern and Notre Dame.

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


An athletic, dual-threat prospect, Goro passed for 2,500 yards and 25 touchdowns in his junior season, his first year as the starter for Maine South H.S.'s spread offense. Goro also rushed for 500 yards and eight touchdowns, showing he has ability to move if necessary.

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


Ranked 35th overall for 2009 quarterbacks and the eighth-best prospect in Mississippi, Clayton Moore knows how to win. He passed for over, 3,000 yards, rushed for over 850 and registered a total of 42 touchdowns his junior year in leading his Louisville H.S. team to the 3A Mississippi State title.

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


Moved up to the varsity during his sophomore season and became a full-time starter as a junior, Neenah's Dan Burkett had 1,400 passing yards and 13 touchdowns on his way to being named to the all-conference team.

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.
