A wildly successful recruiting weekend came to an end Sunday morning, as two Badgers made their official commitments to Coach Barry Alvarez Sunday morning.
Luke Knauf and Jamal Cooper announced their verbals to Coach Alvarez, while many of the other visitors had a great time on their visits.
Marcus Coleman is now heavily leaning towards Wisconsin, but has not yet made an official commitment to the Badgers. Expect him to make an official annoucement sometime over the next 10 days.
Another player that had a great visit this weekend is Brandon Kelly. The 6-4, 220-pound linebacker from Bedford, Ohio is in the same boat as Albert Young, the star running back from Moorestown, N.J. Both players are heavily favoring the Badgers and could be announcing a verbal any day.
Doug Van Dyke indicated to Wisconsin he was cancelling his visit to Madison and Ohio State in order to commit to Purdue. But in an interview with Badger Nation Sunday night, Van Dyke said he has not made a commitment, and would make an official announcement Thursday.
Another player that cancelled his visit this week is Holy Cross (NJ) wide reciever James Townsend. But Dareus "Superman" Hiley will be arriving for his official visit tomorrow morning.
Other cancellations for the Dec. 20th visit weekend include Greg Bracey and Dorien Bryant. The Badgers will likely have six official visits that weekend (an official list will be posted later this week on the site). The two spots vacated will likely be filled by one player from Florida and another from Hawaii (both defensive backs). Stay tuned to the site for more information on the additional visitors.
NOTE: We did not receive official confirmation on the Brandon Tobias commitment until this evening. That commitment is also now official. Look for more coverage on Tobias on the site shortly.
