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.
