Cizauskas Reacts to Wisconsin Offer

Mukwonago (WI) linebacker Dominic Cizauskas reacts to his offer from Wisconsin on Tuesday.

Wisconsin is having its first of two camps this week and extended an offer out to Mukwonago (WI) middle linebacker Dominic Cizauskas earlier Tuesday.

"I had camp today at Wisconsin and ran my forty along with my shuttle, but Coach (Dave) Aranda kept a sharp eye on me and kept reporting back to Coach (Gary) Andersen and telling him how I was doing," Cizauskas told Badger Nation. "I was having lunch and one of their recruiting coaches told me that Coach Andersen wants to have a meeting with me and my parents in his office.

"I went up there and he basically said that they were going to offer me a scholarship because you would be a great fit to the team, have a great set of skills and great person. I was really honored and he told me that I don't need to go to the rest of the camp because I have seen everything I need to see, so talk to my parents and coaches and get back to us as soon as possible.

"It feels like I am on top of the world. I am truly blessed that I could get that offer and being from Wisconsin, I have been a fan all my life, so it means a lot. It is pretty amazing. My whole family loves Coach Andersen as a person and as a coach. He is very down to earth and knows what he is talking about. They really like him and I do as well."

Now that the 6-1, 240-pound Cizuaskas got that dream offer he has been waiting for, but how does his recruitment look going forwarding and any possibility of him becoming a Badger soon?

"I am going to sit down with my coaches and see if it is Minnesota or Wisconsin," he said. "I want to see where I fit best and where I feel basically almost at home. Those are things that play a role and Madison is up there. I want to make my decision either today or early tomorrow. I could possibly make it on Friday, but it will happen this week."
