Chryst completes first recruiting class

Posted: Updated:

 It was a scramble. However, Paul Chryst was able to piece together a full recruiting class just two months after accepting the job at Wisconsin. The new Badgers head coach announced the signing of 21 scholarship athletes on National Signing Day.

The class was ranked No. 38 overall by ESPN. That ranking was helped by the late addition of linebacker Arrington Farrar out of Georgia. The Badgers' class also featured two quarterbacks and two highly-recruited running backs. The one area of need that was not addressed in a major way was receiver. Wisconsin added just one wideout.

Chryst also focused heavily on staking a claim to the state of Wisconsin. He added 14 in-state recruits.
