After rumors of a visit to Ohio State were confirmed this week, four-star running back Antonio Williams (New London, NC) has decommitted from Wisconsin. He had previously decommited from North Carolina in 2014, and picked the Badgers over Auburn, Duke, Notre Dame, and Ohio State in his main list.

Williams, ranked as a top twenty running back in his class nationally by major recruiting websites, had this to say on Twitter today:

This is a big blow to the Badgers’ very solid class of 2016, but Williams may still come back to Wisconsin. There is no doubt that the Ohio State interest caught his attention, and we will just have to wait and see what happens next. Williams was also a big leader in recruiting more guys in the 2016 class, and had just spoke recently about how much he loved his class.

Clearly, something is brewing, but the Badgers need to find a replacement at running back if he is indeed out of the picture.
