Badgers target in-state prospects  

February, 24, 2010
Bret Bielema has targeted two class of 2011 prospects from the state of Wisconsin for his next recruiting class, running back Melvin Gordon (Kenosha, Wis./Bradford) and linebacker Jake Keefer (Baldwin, Wis./Woodville).

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Gordon is the early choice as the top prospect in the state. Gordon rushed for just over 1,000 yards during his junior season and scored 11 times.

Gordon has scholarship offers from Wisconsin and Iowa and has visited both. It is too early to name a clear cut leader between the two, but it is safe to say that at this point Gordon looks like he may end up choosing between the Badgers and Hawkeyes.
