Wisconsin lost one New Jersey running back (Jonathan Taylor) on Friday, but added another one today.
2020 recruit Jalen Berger announced his commitment to the Badgers at the All-American Bowl in San Antonio. Berger chose Wisconsin over the likes of UCLA, Rutgers, LSU among others.
According to the 247Sports Composite, Berger is rated as the No. 11 running back in the country and the No. 2 player in the state of New Jersey. He is the second highest rated running back (John Clay, 2007) the Badgers have landed in the recruiting rankings era.
The 6-foot, 205-pound Berger is the first running back in Wisconsin’s 2020 class.
