Ohio Recruiting Pipeline: Open

Rivals and the Journal Sentinel are reporting the Badgers picked up their 11th recruit for the '09 class, getting a verbal from Jeff Duckworth of Cincinnati, OH (Scout: 2*, Rivals: NR, ESPN: NR). Duckworth is a 6' 195 lb. wide receiver who is reported to run a 4.5 40.

I'm not really a recruiting junky, but we've gotten some great wide receiver talent from Ohio before, including no less than Chris Chambers and Lee Evans. Current Badgers from the Buckeye state include Lance Smith, Shane Carter, Prince Moody and wide receivers Kyle Jefferson, Isaac Anderson, and Daven Jones. With Ohio State basically full on recruits (around 24, if I'm not mistaken), we could see more Buckeyes become Bucky's. Bielema and his staff beat out Indiana, and to a lesser extent Michigan State and Illinois for Duckworth.

Here's his recruiting video from Rivals (which all look practically the same to me).

Here's hoping he can live up to the reputation of those who preceeded him:
