Thoughts/Disclaimers

  • Note: It is still very early on, and every day, these recruiting rankings can update depending upon commitments, announced de-commitments, and modified player rankings.
  • Of the conference teams ahead of Wisconsin in these recruiting services' respective rankings, all have more commitments. The Badgers are the closest to the Nittany Lions (12) in terms of number of players for the 2021 class.
