Badger football landed their second commitment of the weekend with cornerback Rukeem Stroud announcing his decision Sunday morning.

The Tampa native will join Logan Powell as the other commitment from this weekend's numerous official visits. He chose Wisconsin over other Big Ten programs like Penn State, Illinois and Nebraska as well as his hometown South Florida.

The 6'0, 160 pound cornerback is listed as the number 40 corner in the country and the 48th overall prospect in Florida according to 247 Sports. He'll add size and athleticism to the cornerback room and is another great addition for Luke Fickell and company this summer.

Stroud is the fifth defensive back to commit in the Badgers' 2025 class and will improve an already strong 15th ranked class in the nation.
