Loveland, Ohio, tight end Brian Wozniak said he's had the Wisconsin Badgers on his radar for almost two months now, but the Badger coaches wanted to get him up at camp this week to see him workout in person.
That work out turned into an official scholarship offer and something else.
"I committed to Wisconsin actually late last night and then I called and talked to the offensive coordinator this morning," Wozniak, a 6-foot-4, 223-pound three-star prospect, said. "Wisconsin has really been there from the start, but it started to get a little heavier over the last two months as I talked more to coach Joe Rudolph.
"We had a good chemistry going, and I've always liked the Big Ten. I always wanted to play in the Big Ten, and they throw to the tight end a lot. I called Rudolph and told him I was committing, and he was really excited about my decision."
Wozniak had an impressive offer list from schools like Cincinnati, UConn, Louisville, Maryland, Arkon, Marshall, Miami of Ohio, Ohio and others. He said his performance at camp really sealed the deal for the Badgers to offer him.
"They told me if I came to camp then good things would happen, and they were right," Wozniak said. "By the time Monday was over, they told me they were excited about me and were going to offer. I had lunch with the coaches up there yesterday, and pretty much knew it was going to happen.
"I talked it over with my parents, and we decided it was the right time to commit. I'm extremely excited about my decision. It's the right fit and the right place for me."
Wozniak was a two-way threat as a junior. He had 22 receptions for 331 yards on offense in 2007. He also had 57 tackles and three sacks as a junior. He was honored with first-team all-conference honors in 2007. In basketball, he was also named his team's MVP and earned all-conference recognition. He's ranked by Rivals.com as the No. 41 tight end in the nation.
