NCAA News: The Wisconsin Badgers tear in the recruiting game continued today. Luke Fickell put out his infamous bat signal on Twitter, and less than an hour later yet another running back announced his commitment to the Badgers. This time it is Gideon Ituka from Maryland.
Wisconsin Badgers Receive Commitment From Three-Star Running Back Gideon Ituka
The Wisconsin Badgers have done well for themselves as far as the class of 2024 goes. They currently rank number 14 in the country after a barrage of commitments followed the program’s early June official visit weekends. The Badgers still have plenty of target left that could make a difference for the program, and today they got another one.
“Oh man, it was amazing,” Ituka said of his official visit. “Really seeing the city and the atmosphere for the first time, it really felt like home for me. My family loved it, I loved it. We had a great time here. The coaches made it a great time. Meeting the players, it seemed like a family. It was overall just a great visit. I loved it here. My parents loved it a lot too.
“Just the way they treated me like family,” Ituka added. “It wasn’t really about football. It was more about family.”
Gideon Ituka rushed 152 times for 1,106 yards (7.3 yards per carry) and 16 touchdowns as a junior. He is the 15th player to announce his commitment to the Wisconsin Badgers for the 2024 class.
He was initially offered by Paul Chryst’s staff in May of 2022. Ituka took an unofficial visit to meet the new coaching staff in April 2023, and took his official visit to the Badgers earlier this month. He also held offers from Boston College, Maryland, Tennessee, Syracuse, Temple and several other schools.
