The entire crop of incoming freshmen and junior college recruits for Wisconsin football has finally arrived in Madison and is looking to make an impression in a hurry as fall practice has finally begun.
You can throw spring practice out the window—now is the time for players to prove themselves to first-year head coach Gary Andersen.
Some don't have much to worry about, but several positions are up for grabs and many players missed all of spring camp with injuries. Considering the changes made, especially on defense, there are only four weeks to not only grow comfortable with new concepts, but to show you belong on the field.
