Last week, the Badgers expected to bring in 20-25 recruits this weekend. Now there will be just 12. Here are the guys making the trip, on what remains the biggest recruiting weekend of the year:
Marcus Coleman- The 6-6, 300-pound offensive tackle is a lifelong Illinois fan but is heavily considering the Badgers.
Jamaal Cooper- The 6-4, 200-pound linebacker from Hazelwood East in St. Louis visited Illinois last weekend and has trips to UCLA (Jan. 10) and Kansas State (Jan. 17) scheduled.
Adam Gabriel- A 5-11, 215-pound linebacker/running back from Monrovia, Calif., Gabriel is very interested in Wisconsin.
Brandon Kelly- This is the final visit for the 6-3, 210-pound linebacker from Bedford, Ohio. Stanford, which he visited last weekend, is going to be tough to beat.
Luke Knauf- The 6-4, 295-pound offensive lineman from Stratford, Wis. is heavily considering the Badgers and Iowa.
Brad Mueller- The 6-foot, 170-pound speedy defensive back from Mars, Pennsylvania also made a trip to Boston College.
Brandon Nolen- Another New Jersey running back considering UW, Nolen is a 5-11, 185-pounder from Old Bridge.
Julian Riley- This Tampa Bay defensive line stud was offered last week by Florida, which could have an effect on his list of finalists, but he is going to take all five visits.
Doug Van Dyke- The Michigan defensive end, the younger brother of former MSU quarterback Ryan Van Dyke, currently favors Michigan and Purdue heading into this visit.
