On Tuesday, recruiting picked up for the Badgers and in a BIG way.
Marian Central prep quarterback Jon Budmayr, widely considered one of the best quarterbacks in Illinois and the 55th best quarterback in the nation according to Scout Media, gave his verbal commitment to Wisconsin Tuesday afternoon to play for Wisconsin starting in fall 2009.
"Jon's real excited for this opportunity, as are we," his father, Rick, said over the phone. "Jon wanted to commit before his senior year and the Badgers were there from day one."
Having already led his team to an Illinois state championship as a sophomore, Budmayr threw for 2,033 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior, leading his team to a state semifinals appearance and was named first team all-state.
