Wisconsin misses top schools for top 2025 RB, brother of former Badger

Wisconsin missed the finalists list of four-star class of 2025 running back Tory Blaylock on Saturday afternoon.

Tory Blaylock is the younger brother of former Badger safety Travian Blaylock, who played at Wisconsin from 2018-2023. Wisconsin offered Tory in June of 2022 when Paul Chryst was  the head coach and Al Johnson was coaching running backs.

The Badgers were included in the running back’s top 13 schools in August 2023. But the program missed this cut to six and seems firmly out of Blaylock’s plans.

The talented running back will decide among Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Tennessee and Alabama. He is ranked as 247Sports’ No. 221 player overall, No. 17 among running backs and No. 32 recruit from Texas in the class of 2025.

Wisconsin’s class of 2025 ranks inside the nation’s top 10 with nine players committed. While it is still early in the cycle, Luke Fickell is still in search of the group’s first blue-chip commit.
