In this second edition of PrepRedzoneWI’s series of our Preseason All-State teams we will be featuring and honoring the best 8-player recruits in the state of Wisconsin, regardless of their class. In this article we’ll name both offense and defense, and some of the names may look familiar from our earlier article listing some of the best returning 8-player recruits in the state. However, I did a re-watch of every 8-player program in the Wisconsin just to make sure I didn’t miss anyone, so this list is based on film as well as available statistical information as well as college interest. Check out who was named Preseason All-State below!
