"I found out about the offer when I called Coach Beatty and he told me," Cronkrite told BadgerNation. "I just met him today when he hit me up on Facebook, but he seems pretty cool. They watched about four plays of my film and they were sold. I'm always happy when I get a new offer, so this one was no different."
The 5-11, 189-pound runner is no stranger to the recruiting process. A four-star recruit and the No.29 tailback in the country by Scout.com, Cronkrite holds around two dozen offers. While he is somewhat familiar with the Badgers, Cronkrite doesn't know if he will visit just yet.
"What I know of Wisconsin is the good running back success they had in the past," said Cronkrite. "Other than that nothing more really. As far as a visit there, I'm not sure yet. I don't have a top list or anything yet. It is crazy with all these schools coming from all over."
