Wisconsin signs 14 players on first day of early signing period

The early NCAA signing period for high school athletes got underway Wednesday and Wisconsin added a host of new faces to the program.

As of 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, the Badgers had 14 scholarship players signed in a class that ranks 44th in the country and 11th in the Big Ten, according the 247Sports Composite rankings. Some of that ranking is due to the small class. If you use the average rating of each recruit, Wisconsin would rank sixth in the conference.

The team is likely to add a few more players that could lift those rankings and are waiting on a decision from four-star guard Carson Hinzman (Hammond, Wis.).

Here is the list of players that signed with Wisconsin on Wednesday.
