Wisconsin adds a New Jersey 'athlete' to its 2025 football recruiting class

MADISON – Busy working to finalize Wisconsin's roster for the 2024 college football season, Luke Fickell's staff has added another player for the 2025 freshman class.

Cameron Miller, 5-foot-11, 165-pound wide receiver/cornerback from New Jersey, announced Wednesday he has committed to UW.

Miller reported offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Oregon and several other schools.

His final two choices were UW and Kentucky.

He is the 11th known commitment in UW's 2025 class and could be an ideal slot receiver with the Badgers.

Miller has played both ways for Winslow Township in each of the last three seasons.

As a junior last season he recorded 59 catches for 1,342 yards and 15 touchdowns. He had two interceptions and 39 tackles on defense.

The UW staff wasn't as fortunate in its efforts to add a defensive lineman via the transfer portal.

Jay'viar Suggs, who played a combined 22 games in the last two seasons at Grand Valley State, announced Wednesday he is transferring to LSU.

Suggs, 6-3 and 282, visited UW during spring ball. He played one season (2022) under Matt Mitchell, who is preparing for his second season as UW's outside linebackers coach, and was a teammate of cornerback Nyzier Fourqurean.

The Badgers lack experienced depth on the defensive line.

James Thompson Jr., Curt Neal and Ben Barten were the top three linemen in the spring. The fourth was Elijah Hills, a transfer from Albany.
