According to the Wisconsin State Journal, Kenosha Bradford running back Melvin Gordon, one of the top-ranked recruits in the state, is in the process of decommitting from Iowa and is expected to commit to the Badgers.

Gordon, 6-foot-2, 195 pounds, was named the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association Offensive Player of the Year, with 158 carries for 2009 yards, an average of 12.7 yards per carry. He also led the state with 38 rushing touchdowns.

Here's the Journal's post. There is some ugly Twitter traffic on this courtesy of @Kyle_Heikkinen, who covers Wisconsin recruiting for Badger 24/7. He alleges a postgame fight in the Iowa lockerroom (after Ohio State?).

Iowa is down to 15 commitments now and has suffered running back crisis No. 1 for 2011.
