The Wisconsin Badgers have found their next great running back in Jalen Berger.

Berger committed to Wisconsin over the weekend during the All-American bowl. He chose the Badgers over offers from Alabama, UCLA, Baylor, Florida, LSU, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State and many others.

Watch his commitment below.

The rich just keep getting richer. Berger was one of the best running backs in the 2020 class, and now he’s coming to Wisconsin.

It only makes sense. If you’re an elite running back, who else would you even want to play for? All the Badgers do is produce stars in the backfield.

This also comes at the perfect time for the Badgers with Jonathan Taylor headed to the NFL. You never know how much a freshman will play, but this kid is a star.

Paul Chryst has done an incredible job at recruiting at all positions across the board. We’ve never had this kind of recruiting success at Wisconsin.

Clearly, whatever he’s selling is being bought in spades by the young men looking to play for him.

I can’t wait to see Berger get to work. Wisconsin never rebuilds our rushing attack. We just reload year after year.
