James says he’ll be a Badger

Brookfield East standout Alec James is a big key in Wisconsin‘s incoming football recruiting class, but the coaching change from Bret Bielema to Gary Anderson left some doubt as to whether James would stick with the Badgers.

Nothing is official until the papers are signed next week, but it appears James will be a Badger after reaffirming his commitment to the UW this week.

After Bielema left, James had re-opened recruiting talks and was considering Oregon and Michigan State.  But it’s the Badgers that appear to have won the recruiting battle for James.
