Indiana junior receives first offer

Badgers tender scholarship to Hamilton Heights OL Cody Faulkner

Cody Faulkner, a 6-foot-4, 310-pound offensive lineman, from Cicero (Ind.) Hamilton Heights, received his first scholarship offer yesterday from the University of Wisconsin.

"It's exciting news," Faulkner said. "Wisconsin has offered me a full scholarship offer."

Faulkner was one of the top offensive line prospects at the San Antonio junior combine. He was named all-state as a junior.

Cody is the son of former Florida Gators tight end Chris Faulkner. Chris Faulkner went on to become a fourth-round NFL draft choice and played with the Chargers and the Rams.

Cody's older brother plays football at Wabash College.

This is not the first time the Badgers have recruited Hamilton Heights. Last week, Cody Faulkner's prep teammate, quarterback Dustin Sherer, signed a national letter of intent to attend Wisconsin.
