Wisconsin has lost one piece of its 2023 recruiting class as of Thursday morning.

The decision comes from Jamel Howard, a 3-star defensive lineman out of Marist High School in Chicago, Illinois. Originally committing to the Badgers in June, Howard announced his decision on social media.

“After lots of long hard thoughts. I have decided to reopen my recruitment!! Thank you to the badger family for everything,” Howard wrote via Twitter.

According to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings, the 6-foot-3 and 320 lb. DL is a 3-star prospect. Howard is also rated as the No. 26 player out of Illinois for the cycle.

Howard also holds B1G offers from Nebraska, Michigan and Illinois. Most notably, he received offers from Nebraska and Michigan recently during October. We’ll see if one of those programs makes a push for Howard.
