Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin head football coach Gary Andersen announced his 2014 recruiting class on Wednesday. The class includes 25 scholarship players and five walk-ons. The group of 30 players represent 11 different states and two countries as kicker Rafael Gaglianone was born in Brazil. Coach Andersen was happy that the program addressed three major positions of need, which includes offensive line, defensive back and wide receiver. Two players who were verbally commited to Wisconsin up until this week, but did not sign are Sun Prairie DL Craig Evans who signed with Michigan State and Mukwonago LB Dominic Cizauskas whose future is uncertain.
