Wisconsin football recruiting: are the Badgers cheapskates?

College football recruiting is a funny thing. It is nearly impossible to predict what a 15-year old kid will have for lunch and yet there are dozens upon dozens of people trying to project what height and arm strength the same kid will have in two and a half years. It’s wild to me...and I take it all far too seriously.

I have a 247Sports account. I have a Rivals account. I try and summon meaning from logo orders on Instagram posts from recruits that say “in no particular order.” Following my strict “never tweet” policy, I definitely don’t tweet at recruits and you shouldn’t either.
