Goose Creek RB Caleb Kinlaw has decided to change his verbal commitment switching from Georgia Tech to Wisconsin. In a statement to Live 5 the star Senior the chance to play in a more conventional offense was important.
"The opportunity to actually play rb instead of a slot type back made a difference. The success and prestige of Wisconsin's rbs speaks for itself. In the past 20 years, there have been 19 seasons where a rb has rushed for 1,000+ yards and I'm pretty sure almost if not all of them got drafted as well." Kinlaw said.
Kinlaw made a visit to Madison over the weekend and was apparently impressed with what he saw. He reportedly told the Badgers coaches on Wednesday night.
When he originally committed to Georgia Tech back in July he talked about how important education was. That hasn't changed saying "The education isn't much different than GT and the suburban/rural big ten environment is something I'm used to and more comfortable with"
Kinlaw, who's considered a 3-star prospect by most recruiters, has put up great numbers for the 3rd straight season in Goose Creek. He's rushed for over 1,000 yards and a career high 19 touchdowns. For his career, he's rushed for over 4,000 yards and 45 touchdowns.
He would become the 2nd player from his family to go to a Big 10 school. His brother Rodney played at Penn State.
