A heavily-recruited defensive back out of Florida has made the decision to commit to Wisconsin.

The Badgers landed a verbal pledge from three-star cornerback Ricardo Hallman on Monday afternoon. The Fort Lauderdale native picked Wisconsin over offers from 15 other programs. Hallman made his announcement with a post on Twitter.

“I would like to thank all the coaches who took their time to recruit me, build a relationship with me and give me the opportunity to play for their school,” Hallman wrote. “This by all means was a tough choice! With that being said I would like to announce that I am 1000% committed to the University of Wisconsin.”

Hallman is ranked as the No. 44 cornerback in the 2021 recruiting cycle and is the No. 85 player out of Florida. Overall, Hallman is listed as the No. 585 player in the class.

Last year at the high school level, Hallman was all over the field. He intercepted eight passes and recorded 17 tackles, earning him a Miami Herald All-Broward County 5A-Ind second-team selection. Hallman also runs track.

In addition to Wisconsin, Hallman also received offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Boston College, Iowa State, Louisville, Miami, Michigan, Ole Miss and Penn State. The Badgers are now up to 15 commitments in the 2021 class and rank 11th nationally and third in the B1G.
