The Wisconsin football team added the ninth commitment in its 2021 class early Sunday afternoon.

Linebacker Jake Chaney (Lehigh Acres, Fla.) announced his decision on Twitter.


A 3-star recruit, Chaney is ranked as the 110th-best player in the state of Florida and the 33rd-best inside linebacker in the country, according to 247Sports.

The 6-foot, 210-pound Chaney chose the Badgers over offers from Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa State, Pittsburgh and others.

With Chaney added to the class, 247Sports has the Badgers ranked No. 7 in the country and No. 2 in the Big Ten.
