Gary Andersen had a successful first season as the head coach of the Wisconsin Badgers, at one point having many believe that they were the hottest team in the game.

But now, it’s time to see how well Andersen can sustain the success for this program with his efforts on the recruiting trail, and that came to a head on Wednesday during National Signing Day.

According to Rivals, the Badgers and Andersen finished 33rd in the nation with their class, which may actually have the pieces in it to get the job done with what they do.
