A Big Fan in the Stands

Becoming Wisconsin's last in-state commit after giving his verbal pledge following the Badgers first summer camp, Mukwonago (WI) linebacker Dominic Cizauskas was excited to be back in Madison, checking out UW's season opener.

This summer, Mukwonago (WI) senior middle linebacker Dominic Cizauskas went to Wisconsin to camp and impress the coaching staff. Not only did he impress them, but he walked away with an offer and soon decided he wanted to become a Badger.

This past weekend, the talented linebacker made it back up to Madison again and talks about how it went along with his analysis of Coach Andersen's first game at Wisconsin.

"It was great," Cizauskas told BadgerNation. "Sitting front row with two of my friends then watching the Badgers get a victory was just a great feeling. I mean also just the stands being full and the unreal atmosphere makes me want to be there more and more!

"I think Coach Andersen did great in his first game. I was impressed with how organized the team looked and how both sides of the ball had team chemistry. The best part of the visit was really just being there and knowing that in one year I'll be running out of the tunnel in front of 50 thousand plus. I do plan on making it to Wisconsin games a lot this fall. I am visiting friends that go to Madison just to get used to the campus and everything and going great."

At 6-1 and 250 pounds, Cizauskas has the size and tools to contribute at the next level. So before he hits campus, he is dominating on the high school ranks and has a big game this week.

"We are 2-0 going into our first conference game against Waukesha West Thursday," said Cizauskas. "I have done real good this season so far and on the defensive side of the ball (and) offensive side as well. I don't know my defensive stats, but I know I have had three carries for 104 yards and one touchdown along with a receiving and kick return touchdown."
