Lake Zurich linebacker Jack Sanborn gives verbal commitment to Wisconsin

Lake Zurich four-star inside linebacker Jack Sanborn decided to end his recruiting process Wednesday night, giving the Wisconsin Badgers his verbal commitment.

"(Wisconsin) has everything I was looking for," Sanborn said. "I believe I can't go wrong there. They have the academics, great football, the campus is amazing. I feel comfortable there with all of the coaches and the players as well."

Sanborn is the eight known verbal commitment for the Badgers in the Class of 2018 and the second from Illinois, joining Lyons Township quarterback Ben Bryant.

Sanborn is currently ranked as the third-best Illinois player in the Class of 2018 and is one of seven ranked in the top 10 to give an early verbal commitment.

The Class of 2018 won't sign a Letter of Intent until Feb. 1 of next year.
