Badgers Add Another In-State Walk-on

With National Signing Day less than four days away, the Badgers are hosting a number of prospects this weekend that can finish their signing class. At the same time, Wisconsin is boosting its program and its signing class with key walk-ons. Go inside to read about the latest Wisconsin walk-on.

MADISON - Like many uncommitted prospects with National Signing Day approaching, the decision on which school they will becomes magnified. For a recruit Madison East quarterback Drew McAdams, the decision becomes even harder, choosing from a scholarship offer from Winona State, a possible offer from Illinois State or playing for home-town Wisconsin. That decision became clear after McAdams took an official visit to Madison last weekend.

"Drew had discussions with his family about the options for attending college as a Student/Athlete," Drew's father Dan told Badger Nation. "After his official visit last weekend it was decided as a family that joining the Badgers would be a great opportunity for him across the board. Drew McAdams talked with Coach Bostad Friday January 29th and committed to the University of Wisconsin as a preferred walk-on."

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound quarterback's team struggled during his senior season with a 2-7 record. Despite the struggles, McAdams had a solid season at quarterback for the Purgolders.

McAdams completed nearly 54 percent of his passes for 2570 yards and 27 touchdowns, while throwing 17 interceptions. He was also able to scramble for 661 yards and 8 touchdowns.

McAdams is being recruited at quarterback but may move to wide reciever, safety or cornerback in the future.

McAdams joins Milwaukee Marquette lineman Cameron Botticelli, La Crosse Central fullback/linebacker Jason Hengel, Oregon athlete Jacob Ninneman and Oconto linebacker Ben Ruechel as known committed preferred walk-ons for UW's 2010 class.
