Trask on Janus: "Nick joins Wisconsin after a tremendous prep career in Chicago. He adds elements that any good soccer team needs, and with outstanding physical tools and good ideas, he should complement the other attacking players we have well. Nick has had a great deal of high-level coaching from Dave Richardson and Bret Hall at Sockers FC, which should allow for a quick adjustment to the college game."
