Badgers Land Commitment No. 5

Wisconsin will enter fall camp with at least five oral commitments, including three from the state of Wisconsin.

According to the Wausau Daily Herald, the Badgers have landed their fifth commitment of the 2004 recruiting season, receiving an verbal from Wausau East tight end/linebacker/running back Andy Crooks.

Crooks became the third in-state athlete to commit to Wisconsin prior to fall camp, including commitments from Hudson offensive lineman Kraig Urbik and Ladysmith defensive tackle Mike Newkirk last spring.

A 6-3, 234-pound senior, Crooks was offered following his performance at UW's summer camp in June. He ran a 4.7 40-yard dash, and showed enough skill catching the ball to make the UW staff believe he could be a productive tight end.
