Budmayr Top Junior In Illinois

There's going to be a ton of talent in the Land of Lincoln next season and the top junior prospect right now is quarterback Jon Budmayr. The Badgers have already offered.

Jon Budmayr, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound, quarterback, from Woodstock (Ill.) Marian Central Catholic, is arguably the No. 1 junior football prospect in the Land of Lincoln.

Budmayr, if he chooses to participate, should be considered a serious candidate for the prestigious "Elite 11" quarterback camp next summer.

"We just finished our season with a 10-9 loss to Morris in the semi-finals," Jon Budmayr told Badger Nation.

Budmayr led the Hurricanes to a state runner-up finish as a sophomore and he'll definitely be looking to get his state championship next season. Watching Budmayr direct an offense is a thing of beauty.

Budmayr can make every throw on the field, his pocket presence is excellent and he sees the entire field extremely well. It's easy to see why Northwestern and Wisconsin have already offered a scholarship.

"Northwestern and Wisconsin have offered," Budmayr said. "There are about nine more schools that are really recruiting me heavily including Notre Dame, Arizona State, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Kansas, Nebraska, Boston College and Colorado."

Budmayr finished his junior season with a 10-3 record. In eight games, Jon threw for 2,033 yard and 15 touchdowns. Budmayr missed five games with a partially torn hamstring.
