Our OL commit from DC Everest HS near Wausau, Wisconsin, Zach Mueller, was named first team all state by the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association.

Just getting around to Friday's news, Mueller was named 2nd team all-state by the Associated Press. Still hoping he sticks with us.
It's getting close to crunch time and we're down 1 recruiting coord. You're our Wisconsin rep so it's now up to you to close the deal with Mueller by any means necessary. Remember what goes on in the cabin stays in the cabin. :D

I'm looking for written bios for the recruits, and I'm not finding anything. The signing day central page has names and stats and a link to video, but I don't see any bios. Am I missing them somewhere??

Anyone know when is the new recruits preview is scheduled for up in the stadium suite? Hoping it is before a weekday BB game again for those of us who live out of the area.

I think they do that on national signing day, which is Weds Feb 7th this year. We have a home basketball game the next day, but I'm betting they keep that recruiting event on weds. I've been to the last couple of those, and I think last year was a fluke that signing day landing on one of our BBall home games. Personally, I would love it if they moved it to Thursday.

Wait, that 17 year old kid is listed at 6'7'' 310? Good lord. What are they feeding these monsters?

Thanks JHBird. And I agree...pushing it back one day would be a benefit for fans/alum--for those of us who drive an hour or more to Normal- it would increase attendance at Redbird by allowing football folks to catch a BB game- and it would allow BB fans to come early & support the football program. That said I assume you are correct and it will be on the 7th😔

TR, I see you already updated the commit list to include Josh Dinga from Sun Prairie, WI. I did not see that, but today's Madison paper has a pretty informative story on him. Sounds like a very good get. Good size. As usual, I'll hope that the Badger preferred walk-on program doesn't come calling.

Sun Prairie is a "suburb" of Madison, around 30K population, that plays in Wisconsin's largest football class. They have pretty solid athletic teams the way around.

http://host.madison.com/wsj/sports/high ... fbb9d.html

The 6-foot-6, 220-pound Dinga, a defensive end, was a first-team selection on defense on the Wisconsin State Journal/WisconsinPrepZone.com All-Area football team.

Dinga was a first-team choice as a defensive end on the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association all-state team and was an honorable-mention pick on The Associated Press all-state team.
This is pretty good too, fun.

Mad - Totally agree, great get. You'll never have to sell me on the idea of recruiting Wisconsin talent especially the All-Staters. Dinga, Mueller and Halusan. I'd like to have a half dozen more.

Always good to get a kid from East St. Louis, good program there. Big body WR never hurts either! Looks like he had a few MVFC offers -- Northern Iowa, Southern Illinois, and South Dakota. Good get!

(Also looks like the shortest commitment tweet I've ever seen).

Sources close to the team believe this kid is a diamond in the rough. Absolute steal. “Next Cam Meredith”

Transfer Braxton Haley doesn't have mind-blowing stats, but appears to be the TD scoring leader for his team last year, including RB's. Nice to get a "senior classman" in there someplace.

And the ESL kid looks like a good get as well.

shortest commitment tweet ever ? I like him already. Very nice frame to work with.

He was all conference with 50 catches for 850 yards (per Max Preps). Won 2 playoff games before losing to Mt Carmel on road by just 3. Here are his SR year game stats

Eric Rogers II (#8) receiving statistics

Date Opponent ... Receptions, Rec Yds TDs Avg/Rec
08/26 Providence Catholic (N) 5 50 0 10.0
09/02 Evangel Christian Aca. (N) 3 59 0 19.7
09/08 Edwardsville (L) 10 127 2 12.7
09/16 Belleville East (L) 6 73 0 12.2
09/22 Collinsville (L) 4 62 1 15.5
09/30 Belleville West (L) 4 57 0 14.3
10/06 Granite City (L) 3 69 1 23.0
10/13 O'Fallon (L) 3 92 1 30.7
10/20 Alton (L) 2 38 0 19.0
10/28 Libertyville (T) 3 106 1 35.3
11/04 Buffalo Grove (T) 8 111 0 13.9

Combine results below:

Chicago Nike Combine (April 2017) .. which is totally legit in terms of times. They list the following: 6'-3.5", 177 lbs, 4.45 shuttle, 32" vertical. He didn't do the forty and had a weak 32" powerball toss .. so he's got some work to do in the weight room. But guessing he could be a good one in couple after redshirting a year to get his body ready.

6'4''. I'll take THAT out of an 18 year old. Our QBs have not had a ton of outside height in the last few years. Lots of good speedsters and over the middle threats, but sometimes you just need a guy who can reach the ball at a higher apex than the other team. Having a 6'2''+ receiver at this level is an incredible advantage.
