Badgers lead for four-star defensive end 

July, 3, 2012
For the last several months, three teams have stood out to four-star defensive end Alec James (Brookfield, Wisc./Brookfield East). Now, those teams are starting to separate from each other.

Michigan State, Notre Dame and Wisconsin were always at the top of James’ list, and he recently visited all three.

“I’d say Wisconsin is probably a little ahead of Michigan State for Nos. 1 and 2, and Notre Dame is probably third,” James said.
