Sophomore Alex Hornibrook holds the starting quarterback job for now, as the Wisconsin football team begins 15 spring practices.

After the first one Tuesday, coach Paul Chryst says Hornibrook earned the right to be the starter after his nine Big Ten starts last season, plus work he has done during the offseason. Freshmen Kare Lyles and Jack Coan are the backups. Meanwhile, offensive tackle Michael Furtney from Milan, Michigan has given a verbal commitment to play for the Badgers in 2018. Furtney is the seventh publicly known member of the U-W's 2018 recruiting class.
