Chmura's List Wide Open

One of the many in-state campers that worked out for Wisconsin last weekend, Waukesha West athlete Dyson Chmura is hoping more exposure will lead to more opportunities.

Waukesha West outside linebacker Dyson Chmura made the 65 mile trip to camp at the closest school in his recruitment – the University of Wisconsin – last weekend, getting a chance to showcase his skills, get a feel for the program and talk to the coaches.

"Camp went well," Chmura told BadgerNation. "I only talked to coach (Ben) Strickland because coach (Dave) Aranda had to go greet some guys. He (Strickland) just said that he was going to talk to coach Aranda to see how I did at the camp and said he would get back to me and go on that as to where I'm at."

Dyson – son of former Green Bay Packers tight end Mark Chmura – plays linebacker, wide receiver and tight end at Waukesha West but is being targeted by the staff as a linebacker.

A short list of schools Chmura is considering includes Iowa State, Nebraska, Michigan State and Minnesota but when it comes time to make a decision, the full spectrum of schools on his list will be on the clock.

"I don't know (when I will choose)," said Chmura, who has offers from Army, New Mexico and South Dakota. "I'd like to make a decision before the season, but I'm in no rush for a commitment yet. I will pretty much consider every school that listed me. I won't give them the cold shoulder."

Although his brother, Dylan, is a redshirt freshman at Michigan State, Dyson said there is no pressure for him to follow suit and play at East Lansing.

"No not at all," he said. "He's (Dylan) really supportive of what I decide and he'd be happy anywhere I went."
