Verona High runner, Jackson Acker, commits to the Badgers recruiting class in 2021
The University of Wisconsin football team added a second member to its 2021 recruiting class on Sunday night.

Verona High's runner, Jackson Acker, confirmed via email that he committed to the Badgers hours after receiving an offer from UW. Rivals and 247sports first reported the news.

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound runner entering his junior year attended the Badgers camp in Madison the previous Sunday and did not wait long to call in special teams coach Chris Haering and pledge his future to the program.

Acker, who held uninformed scholarship offers before Sunday, earned mention honors from the Wisconsin State Journal as a sophomore last season.

He joins Grafton offensive lineman JP Benzschawel in the Badgers' recruiting class in 2021.
