Once the Badgers offered Jordan, that had to make the decision a lot easier.  For the state, this is a pretty great thing.  The Badgers have to continue reeling in these top caliber state players and doing what they have to do to get them.  The tide has swung a little now with these commits, now it is time to snag the top guy.

i wonder if he will RS, then i wonder if he will eventually be a contributer or maybe a practice guy? Sort of along the lines of Carter Higgenbottom or Walt McGrory or Michael Ballard?

Gilmore is well ahead of those three as far as potential goes.
