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.
When you take a look into Bolingbrook three-star wide receiver recruit I'Shawn Stewart (5-foot-11, 165 pounds) you can't help but be excited for Stewart's future.
Stewart, who missed his sophomore season due to an injury has more than made up for lost time. Starting with last summer Stewart was able to show well at various one day college camps and his recruiting momentum hasn't stopped since. Stewart has added offers from Illinois, Iowa along with several Mid American Conference schools and continues to draw increased recruiting attention almost daily.
Stewart these days has been playing travel 7-on-7 with Midwest Boom while also adding some weight and strength in the Raiders weight room. Stewart, along with several of his Raider teammates are also expected to draw 40-50 various college coaches in school once the spring evaluation period begins in mid April.
I caught up with Stewart at the 5th Annual Franklin Dodgeball Madness Tournament at Franklin Middle School in Wheaton. Proceeds from the tournament benefited the school, the DuPage Hundred Club, Team Red, White and Blue and The Pat Tillman Foundation.
