Wisconsin offers highly-touted 2025 running back from New Jersey

Wisconsin extended an offer to four-star class of 2025 running back John Forster on Friday.

Forster is 247Sports’ No. 303 player in the class of 2025, No. 26 running back and No. 9 recruit from his home state of New Jersey.

The highly-touted running back also holds offers from schools including Rutgers, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, Penn State, Pittsburgh and Tennessee.

Wisconsin’s class of 2025 currently ranks No. 9 nationally with seven commitments. The Badgers took three running backs in the class of 2024, plus another from the transfer portal, so I’d expect more scarcity in the 2025 group.
