Glenbard West senior running back Sam Brodner (5-foot-11, 215 pounds), the Player of the Year in Illinois for the 2015 season, ended his recruiting process today and gave the Wisconsin Badgers his verbal commitment.
"I fit in really well at Wisconsin," according to Brodner who made an official visit this weekend to Wisconsin. "I loved everything about it so I committed."
Brodner, who ran for 1,956 yards and 40 touchdowns in leading the Hilltoppers to the Class 7A state title originally gave Vanderbilt his verbal commitment decided to decommit from the Commodores in mid December after making an unofficial visit. Brodner also made an official visit last weekend to Syracuse and also considered an official visit to Illinois before making his decision today.
Brodner claimed that he remained open until after his visit this weekend in Madison.
"I was open until my visit this weekend. I just wanted to see how well I fit in with the team."
Brodner joins Homewood-Flossmoor wide receiver Kendric Pryor (6-foot-1, 171 pounds) as recruits from Chicagoland verbally committed to the Badgers Class of 2016 Signing Class.
