Badgers Get Biegel

Posted Apr 23, 2011

Even before kickoff of Wisconsin's annual spring game, the UW coaching staff has got to feel fortunate, as four-star linebacker Vince Biegel gives its verbal commitment to play at the University of Wisconsin.

MADISON - It's an announcement far from surprising, but just as rewarding for the University of Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln linebacker Vince Biegel, regarded as the top junior in the state of Wisconsin, gave his verbal commitment to Wisconsin Saturday morning, choosing the Badgers over offers from BYU, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Stanford and Tennessee.

Biegel led Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln to the second round of the state playoffs and a 7-4 record. Named the school’s first junior captain, Biegel backed up the honor with roughly 175 tackles, four interceptions and six forced fumbles, the main reason he was awarded first team all-conference, all-region and all-state honors.
