The impressive start to the University of Wisconsin football team's 2012 recruiting class has yet to make a big splash on the national scene.
Blame that on its consistent success over the years, despite recruiting classes that rarely finish in the top 25 nationally.
"I don't really care how Wisconsin is recruiting — is the easiest way I can put it," said Scott Kennedy, the national director of scouting for Scout.com." They're going to be good.
"They've got a system in place right now where they are as good at evaluating talent as there is. They do a great job of developing those players and getting players they know they're going to keep for four or five years and winning big."
Still, its been an enticing thought for Badgers fans: What if you took that same proven system and plugged in a higher caliber of recruit at the start?
While it's early in the process, UW coach Bret Bielema has a chance to do that with his seventh recruiting class.
The Badgers have five oral commitments and four rate four stars (out of five) on Scout.com's rating system: offensive tackle Kyle Dodson from Cleveland Heights (Ohio) High School; quarterback Bart Houston from De La Salle in Concord, Calif.; guard Dan Voltz from Barrington (Ill.); and outside linebacker Vince Biegel from Wisconsin Rapids.
The other recruit, running back Vonte Jackson from Kenosha Bradford, rates three stars.
Lets hope a BCS game is a every year thing. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
