Russell Wilson is officially a Wisconsin Badger.
Head coach Bret Bielema released a statement on Monday morning announcing the move that was widely expected since the former N.C. State signal-caller visited the Madison campus a few weeks back.
"Russell will come in and compete for the starting quarterback position," Bielema said in the release. "This is an unusual situation, especially for a program that prides itself on developing players throughout their careers, as we do here at Wisconsin. However, this is a special situation and Russell is the type of player and person that fits very well with our team."
On Tuesday afternoon at the NFP, I will look at how Wilson fits into coordinator Paul Chryst’s offense -- provided he's able to unseat Jon Budmayr under center.
