Wisconsin adds another solid class


(AP)-  Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema is still working to finish his sixth recruiting class as the program added 20 players with its typical mix of undervalued prospects despite a big season.

Wednesday's class includes nine in-state players, five from Ohio and six players from five other states in an effort to continue bolstering depth at Wisconsin, fresh off its first Rose Bowl appearance in 11 years.

Wisconsin again grabbed the top talent in the state, including running back Melvin Gordon, but also signed notables from Ohio, including defensive end Austin Traylor and wide receiver/cornerback Darius Hillary.

Bielema says the key for his program now is not to stray from its principles of finding talent that fits the Badgers' grinding style.
