Kraig Urbik, a 6-foot-6, 280-pound, offensive lineman from Hudson, Wisconsin has given the Wisconsin Badgers his verbal commitment.
Hudson head coach Craig Jillek feels that Urbik is a top five prospect in the state of Wisconsin.
"Kraig just might be the most sought after prospect in our area in a long, long time," Jillek said.
"Kraig is powerful. Once he gets his hands on a defender, it's over. He's the center on our basketball team, so he has good feet and he also throws the shot and disc on our track team."
Did anyone else besides Wisconsin offer Urbik a scholarship? Why did Urbik pull the trigger on his commitment in March?
"Well, there were a lot of schools that were interested. Schools from about every conference in the country were writing letters." Jillyk said.
"I think when it came down to brass taxes, Kraig's head started to swim with all the attention.
" Even though we are probably closer to the University of Minnesota then we are Wisconsin, Kraig grew up a Badgers fan and always wanted to play for the Badgers.
"After giving it some thought, Kraig and I sat down and he decided to call coach Alvarez and give him his commitment."
Urbik sounds like a super pick-up for the Badgers. Coach Alvarez will want to keep those lines of communication open with Craig Jillek and Hudson High School.
