Gary Andersen just completed his first season as the head coach of Wisconsin football, and now it's time for him to put the finishing touches on his first true recruiting class.
While it was up to Andersen to finish what former Badgers head coach Bret Bielema had started as far as Wisconsin's 2013 recruiting class was concerned, that resembled damage control more than actual recruiting. There have been a few bumps in the road assembling the 2014 class, but all in all, it's evident Andersen is beginning to put his stamp on the program.
As of this writing, the Badgers have 24 verbal commitments, including four players who have already enrolled in the spring semester. This will allow these early enrollees to participate in spring practice and get a head start on the rest of the class of 2014.
Even with 24 players seemingly locked down—although it was recently 25—there is still some work to be done for Andersen and his staff. Let's get you primed and ready for the 2014 national signing day and tell you everything you need to know about Badger football recruiting.
