Wisconsin football’s 2018 recruiting class seemed all but set. Nineteen commits signed during the early signing period in December, while Rachad Wildgoose Jr. (Miami) made his commitment official during a National Signing Day ceremony at his school on Wednesday morning.
Little did Badgers fans know there would be one more prospect joining the team for this upcoming season: 6-year-old Nolan.

Nolan has been dealing with a condition affecting his kidneys and bladder since birth, but that didn’t stop him from powering through the recruiting process.
He made an official visit to campus for a practice and game last season. He walked through the Badgers’ trophy shrine. He had a one-on-one meeting with coach Paul Chryst.
After all that, Nolan was convinced. So, he sat down with Chryst and signed his national letter of intent, officially joining the Badgers football family.
