Why Wisconsin?
"One of the main reasons I chose Wisconsin was becasue of the competition the Big Ten Conference offers. I wanted to go to a school where I'd have to continue to work hard and get better each day in order to compete with the other athletes. Also, I felt a good connection with the coaching staff."
