Coming off of a great season, in which the Badgers were co-champions of the Big Ten conference, Wisconsin football now turns it's eyes to the recruiting race.
Head Coach Bret Bielema has done a good job to this point of bringing in the players he needs in order to be effective within his system, and this year's recruits seem to be no exception to that rule.
While the Badgers hope to continue their success in the Big Ten and on a national scale, they are somewhat lacking when it comes to recruiting rankings.
The Badgers are currently 34th nationally in overall recruiting ranking, and have some solid recruits, but in order to compete on a national level, they will have to up the level of their recruiting.
Auburn was the prime example of this in the BCS Championship. While Oregon may have been light years against the rest of the country when it came to schemes and play-calling, Auburn just plain had better athletes, and it showed.
The Badgers have some solid recruits coming in, and can expect repeated successes within the conference, that being said, the level of recruiting must go above and beyond where it is now before the Badgers can hope to compete on a national stage.
