Badgers add depth to secondary

first_imgA day after addressing the need for a quarterback in his inherited recruiting class with junior college transfer Tanner McEvoy, new Wisconsin head coach Gary Andersen reeled in another commitment from a JUCO player to address needs in the secondary.Needing to replace three starting defensive backs from last season’s team with just safety Dezmen Southward returning, Andersen took the first step toward replenishing the depleted positional group by securing a verbal commitment from safety and JUCO All-American Donnell Vercher of Fresno (Calif.) City College.Vercher, a three-star recruit according to ESPN.com, will be the first player from Fresno City College to play at a Big Ten school since wide receiver Arsenio Curry signed with Purdue in 2008.The 6-foot-2 and 195-pound safety had 23 tackles and eight interceptions this past season for the Rams, helping to lead the team to a 8-3 record in 2012 and a tie for first place atop the Northern California Valley conference. In 2011 Vercher recorded three interceptions and 29 tackles.Andersen and his defensive coordinator Dave Aranda recruited Vercher during their time at Utah State. Vercher chose Wisconsin over Fresno State, where he was once a soft verbal-commit, and Syracuse.The commitment adds security to a Badgers recruiting class that is severely lacking at safety. Vercher remains the lone safety commit in the 2013 recruiting class. Wisconsin adds more depth to their secondary with two cornerback recruits in Keelon Brooking, a three-star recruit and the No. 76 cornerback in the nation and Sojourn Shelton, a four-star recruit and the No. 27 cornerback in the nation.Both Brooking and Shelton have already enrolled at Wisconsin for the spring semester.Andersen and the Badgers also continue to target Marcus Ball, the brother of Wisconsin’s offensive lineman Ray Ball and the No. 67 athlete in the nation, according to ESPN.com. Ball was initially a solid verbal-commit to the Badgers but wavered after the departure of former head coach Bret Bielema. A starting quarterback and safety for Westerville South High School in Ohio, Ball will decide between Wisconsin and Arizona State on Signing Day.last_img read more

Governor makes first visit to medical marijuana manufacturer

first_imgDES MOINES — Governor Kim Reynolds has toured the operation in Des Moines that grows and manufacturers the marijuana-infused products that are sold legally in Iowa as treatment for a limited number of health conditions.“I had not been there before to tour the facility and see what they’re doing,” Reynolds told reporters.This spring the Iowa legislature passed a bill that critics said would have let more potent cannabis products be sold in the state — and Reynolds vetoed it.“We’re going to continue to work with the legislature and make sure that we look for opportunities to build on the program that we already have in place,” Reynolds said. “We want to make sure that it’s safe, reliable…compassionate… while maintaining the health of Iowans and so part of that is viewing the business.”Marijuana — for medical and recreational use — will become legal in Illinois on January 1. Reynolds told reporters she will not steer the State of Iowa in that direction.“I have made it very clear that I am not in favor of legalizing marijuana,” Reynolds said. “I believe they’re going to see all kinds of problems with that in the State of Illinois with that. I believe California is already experiencing some significant problems.”The manager of “MedPharm Iowa” issued a written statement after the governor’s visit to the company’s marijuana growing facility, saying he looks forward to working with Reynolds and the legislature to improve the Iowa medical cannabis program for all Iowa patients. Under current law, patients with a doctor’s permission slip may only buy cannabis pills, oils and creams if they have been diagnosed with one of 11 conditions or have been told they have a terminal illness. Advocates say cannabis could be helpful for other conditions that aren’t on the list, like post-traumatic stress.Reynolds’ visit to MedPharm Iowa was not on her public schedule, but the company issued a news release afterwards.(Photo supplied by MedPharm)last_img read more
