BTN profiles Watt's winding road to Wisconsin

As part of its Saturday pregame show, Big Ten Network profiled Wisconsin junior defensive end J.J. Watt's unconventional path to becoming one of the Big Ten's most dominant defenders.

Watt joined the Badgers in 2008 after playing tight end as a freshman at Central Michigan in 2007. After a humbling six months back in his hometown of Pewaukee, Wis., he quickly went from a walk-on with no promise of a scholarship to an anchor of the Badgers' defensive line.
