It is decision day for a few uncommitted in-state prospects who were waiting to see what their fate was with Wisconsin. One prospect eagerly waiting to receive that call was Green Bay (WI) Bay Port, and Northern Illinois commit, senior athlete Alec Ingold.
Putting up big numbers this past season, Ingold was offered Paul Chryst when he was at Pittsburgh, so he was hoping that would turn into a Badgers offer after Chryst moved to Wisconsin. That premonition happened Saturday night.
“Coach (Joe) Rudolph said I’m a great fit for what Wisconsin is trying to do, and he likes what type of kid I am,” Ingold told BadgerNation. “I’m happy and excited that I got the offer.”
The versatile and dynamic 6-2, 205-pound Ingold, a three-star prospect, was offered by the Badgers in a position that he is not costumed to playing, but is comfortable in competing at.
“I was offered as an outside linebacker,” said Ingold. “With my wrestling background and competing there through camp season, I think I can handle it.”
With a Badgers offer in hand, when will Ingold make a decision on whether he will stick with his commitment to the Huskies or switch to Wisconsin?
“I will make a decision within the next two days,” said Ingold.
