One of the Badgers' highest rated recruits will not be attending Wisconsin. Incoming freshman Jordan Stevenson tweeted out that his recruitment is officially "open to any Division One program for the 2015 season."

According to a report on 247Sports, the Badgers coaching staff informed the talented running back Thursday he would not be admitted to the university. The University of Wisconsin has higher academic standards than the minimum NCAA eligibility standards. The 4-star recruit was expected to compete for playing time behind Corey Clement as a true freshman. Stevenson thanked Badgers nation for their support in recent months.

"Thanks for all the love also all the support through all I have been through much love," he tweeted.
