"We haven't really [committed] officially," Krabbenhoft said. "I told the coaches that once I get there [I'd commit]. I've always wanted to do it face to face."
And he will.
"I've been going at it for about 8 months trying to decide between five schools. I made visits to all of them and when I made the trip to Wisconsin I thought I would commit on the spot. It just really seemed like Wisconsin was the right fit for me.
"I have that family atmosphere with them. I actually do have family right there in Wisconsin. They're headed in the right direction already and they'll just keep getting better."
On Tuesday, he returned to action after missing the entire season with a stress fracture. It's going to take some time to get his wind back, but Roosevelt has a big game on Thursday so he'll have to adjust on the fly.
In Tuesday's game he scored 4 points and had 5 rebounds in 22 minutes. "It was the first game I played and I didn't even think the team we were playing knew I would play but they triple-teamed me anyway."
The commitment by Krabbenhoft will be the first for Wisconsin in the Class of 2005. The Dakota Schoolers standout is a skilled forward. He's got range on his jumper and sees the floor well. He's a high-major prospect of Top 50 caliber and an excellent start to the recruiting season for the Badgers.
