Musso Commits to Wisconsin

Waunakee (Wis) running back Leo Musso wasted no time committing to his dream school, as he chooses Wisconsin Thursday night.

MADISON - Leo Musso saw no reason for prolonging his dream to play for the University of Wisconsin.

Roughly 24 hours after receiving his long-awaiting Badgers scholarship from head coach Bret Bielema, Musso committed to Wisconsin, turning away a preplanned official visit to Pittsburgh and former offensive coordinator Paul Chryst.

"I wouldn't be here today without my friends, family, coaches, and people who didn't believe in me," Musso posted on Facebook. "So for that I'd like to say thanks to everyone who has been involved. I'm excited to say next year ill be attending the University of Wisconsin!"

The 5-foot-10, 192-pound Musso rushed for 2,382 yards and 39 touchdowns as a senior to lead Waunakee to a second straight unbeaten season.

Musso has been recruited as an athlete that will likely start at running back but could be moved to safety. He certainly is versatile enough to do it. At the Nike Sparq Combine in Chicago in March, Musso finished with a 4.12 in the pro agility, 40 inches in the vertical jump and 39.5 feet in the power ball toss. In the 40-yard dash he ran it in 4.6 seconds.

Musso also had scholarship offers from Northern Illinois and South Dakota State. Recommended Stories
