National Signing Day: Wisconsin football’s class of 2024 by position

Wisconsin’s class of 2024 reached its official conclusion Wednesday: national signing day across college football.

Those three words don’t mean nearly as much as they used to. Nowadays, the early signing period sees much of the recruiting movement with national signing day becoming more of a procedural day.

The Badgers class was fully signed months ago; eight of the 22 commits are already enrolled for the offseason program.

The class finished the cycle ranked No. 23 nationally and No. 7 in the new 18-team Big Ten. Its blue chip percentage improved to 50% this week with a commit gaining a fourth star, crossing an important threshold for the first time in program history.

I’d call Luke Fickell’s first full recruiting cycle as Wisconsin head coach a success.
