Wilson still far from decision
With just one scholarship receiver in Wisconsin's 2008 recruiting class (T.J. Williams), the Badgers appear to have room for at least two wide outs in the current cycle.
One of the top receivers on UW's board in the 2009 class is Duwyce Wilson, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound athlete from Columbus (IN) East.
"Two weeks ago I took visits to a lot of the place that have offered me and Wisconsin was one of them, they were the first school we visited," said Wilson, who has offers from Cincinnati, Iowa, Indiana, Kentucky, Wisconsin and Purdue. "It was a large campus and really very nice. The facilities were great and I really get along with all the coaches they have on staff there."
One of the coaches on staff that has built a strong bond is wide receivers coach DelVaughn Alexander, who is attempting to bring in his second verbal in this year's class after securing Zac Matthias a few weeks back.
"I talk with Coach Alexander most of the time," Wilson said. "We have a real good relationship, one of the best I have of all the teams that are recruiting me right now."
Outside of Kentucky, a school that recently offered, Wilson said little has changed in terms of the schools recruiting him the hardest.
"Kentucky has been showing a lot of interest, I just picked up an offer from Kentucky," he said. "Other than that, it's been the same schools that have been showing a lot of interest, a lot of the same schools that have already offered.
"I really like Wisconsin, but I guess I really like all the schools that have offered me so far."
Though it appears he has a concentrated list at this point, don't expect a decision, or group of favorites, any time soon.
"I really don't like saying I have a top list of schools like a three or a five-team list," Wilson said. "I'm just not comfortable in doing that because I'm still undecided."
Including Wilson, Wisconsin has offered eight (known) receivers in the 2009 class: Kraig Appleton, Je'Ron Stokes (Tennessee verbal), Kennan Davis, Nu'Keese Richardson (Florida verbal), Justin Brown, James Jackson (Ohio State) verbal) and Shawney Kersey.
