Wisconsin’s secondary just got a bit deeper with its 12th verbal commitment.
According to 247sports, 3-star defensive back Faion Hicks committed to the Badgers Sunday morning, giving Wisconsin the nation’s 147th best cornerback and 12th commitment in its class of 2017.

Wisconsin offered Hicks, a Hollywood, Fla., native, a scholarship on Sept. 26, and, according to 247sports, were the favorites to land Hicks from the start.
Hicks was also courting offers from 16 other schools, including one from Illinois. He also had considerable interest from Iowa State and Western Kentucky.
Hicks will join fellow 3-star cornerback Madison Cone as the only other cornerback commit in Wisconsin’s 2017 recruiting class.
