Oak Lawn, Ill. three star ranked running back prospect Dion Foster (5-foot-9, 180 pounds) knew all the way back in May that the University of Wisconsin was the school for him. Foster just cemented his college choice last weekend on his official visit to Madison.
“My official visit to Wisconsin was great," Foster said. “I just had a lovely time overall and I can't wait to start going to school at Wisconsin."
"My old teammate Sean Lewis was my host, so that was just a blast. On Friday we were able to go on some tours of the facilities and the campus, then we also had dinner at the senior's banquet that night. We got a chance to hang out with the team after the banquet and that was fun. Saturday involved meetings with each position coach as well as getting to talk with a players panel, and we had a chance to ask them questions without the coaches around. I really learned a lot from those talks. Saturday also involved talks with the academic advisors as well as getting to meet professors from different departments. We also got a chance to watch the team practice on Saturday, then Saturday night was dinner and more time hanging out with the team. I needed to leave early on Sunday because I had a football banquet to attend back at home."
Foster never had any doubts in his mind that he made the best college choice for himself.
"I was really sold on Wisconsin very early on, and this visit just made me realize even more that I belong in Madison."
