Badgers grab commit No. 7

New Jersey athlete is third offensive lineman to commit for Wisconsin's 2005 class

It has been widely speculated for the last two weeks that Don Bosco (N.J.) Prep 3-star offensive lineman Nate Nurse (6-4, 260, 5.00) was set to decide between Wisconsin and Louisville. The wait is over as the athletic lineman has decided on Wisconsin.

"I decided late last week, I liked both schools I just felt more comfortable with Wisconsin," Nurse said.

Besides Wisconsin and Louisville Nurse had offers from Purdue, Indiana, Connecticut, Maryland, Rutgers and Kent State. The third-team all-league selection had 25 pancake blocks as a junior.

Nurse marks the seventh verbal commitment for the Badgers, and the sixth 3-star prospect to give his verbal pledge to Barry Alvarez.
