Another busy week on the recruiting trail for the University of Wisconsin football team. The Badgers added two players to their 2018 recruiting class this week, and now have a total of 10 commits.
The Badgers quickly filled the void left by Ben Bryant, who reopened his recruitment last Friday, by snatching two more players in Cormac Sampson and Isaiah Mullens.
Cormac Sampson is a Wisconsin native coming from Eau Claire. He is expected to play tight end, although most of his highlights on Hudl show him as a defensive end. Scout.com has Cormac listed at 6’5″ and roughly 230 pounds. Sampson proves to be a versatile player, despite being unrated. He announced his commitment on Twitter last Saturday.
Another player that committed to the Badgers is three-star defensive end Isaiah Mullens. The Columbus, Ohio native committed to Wisconsin on Tuesday, announcing his decision on his private Twitter account. Mullens has a large presence on the field, having been recorded at 6’4.5″ and 280 pounds. Mullens also hosts an impressive 4.88 second shuttle run time.
Mullens visited the Badgers on March 31, and despite receiving offers from schools such as Indiana, Iowa, Louisville, Purdue and Rutgers, Wisconsin always appeared to be his front runner.
The Badgers have kept their in-state and out-of-state recruits even thus far in the process, having five from Wisconsin, and five from other states. Wisconsin’s main focus so far in recruiting the class of 2018 appears to be defense, as eight of the ten recruits plan to help that side of the ball.
