Meanwhile, the Badgers have had a good start to their 2019 recruiting class, but here’s five more of their targets to watch as things start to heat up.
D’Mitrik Trice doesn’t practice
Out since early December, there was hope last week that D’Mitrik Trice would be back soon for the Wisconsin basketball team.
