It's never too early to start thinking about a retirement plan, a college fund for your child, or that next vacation . It's also never too early to start thinking about the Badger football recruiting class of 2025. So let's take a peek at a few key commits and how the class stacks up nationally.

Coach Luke Fickell and the Badgers have landed 10 recruit commitments so far for the 2025 class. According to 247Sports' Recruit Team Rankings, Wisconsin currently has the 18th ranked class. Only Ohio State, USC and Penn State have a better current ranking from the Big Ten. The current number one overall class belongs to the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. The Badgers had the 23rd overall ranked 2024 class with 22 commits.

Key Commitments So Far

Michael Roeske - Pos: 33/State: 3

Roseke, the 33rd overall tackle and 3rd ranked in the state of Wisconsin, committed to the Badgers in November. The three-star local prospect will have big shoes to fill if and when Jack Nelson or Riley Mahlman turn pro.

Jaimier Scott - Pos: 41/State: 26

Scott, ranked as the number 26 cornerback in Ohio, committed to the Badgers in January. He's sometimes classified as an athlete rather than corner which just speaks to his versatility on the field. He's somewhat of a Swiss Army Knife and could play safety, corner or slot once on campus.

Luke Emmerich - Pos: 139/State: 7

Emmerich, a safety and athlete out of Minnesota, is the Badgers most recent commit. The three-star speedster will offer plenty of versatility for the Badgers much like Scott. Emmerich could test out at a few different positions until he finds a home on the Badger defense.

The class also features a quarterback, Braedyn Locke's young brother Landyn, and several other members of the future defense. Wisconsin will continue to add to their current 10 commitments as the year progresses. These guys won't see the field for at least a few more years now, but it's always good to look ahead at what the state of the roster will be after some of the 2024 Badgers graduate, turn professional or transfer.
