The rebuilding of the University of Wisconsin football team's offensive line continued with a key commitment from Seymour offensive lineman Jon Dietzen.

Dietzen, 6-foot-5, 305 pounds, made the announcement public on Sunday at the camp in Chicago.

He was a first-team selection by the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association last fall after helping the Thunder rush for 48 touchdowns and average 8.1 yards per carry, according to the Appleton Post-Crescent website.

Dietzen reportedly had scholarship offers from Michigan State, Nebraska and Miami (Fla.) and is the fourth known commitment for the 2015 class.

He joins quarterback Austin Kafentzis (Utah), tight end Kyle Penniston (California) and wide receiver Andrew James (Florida).

The Badgers signed six offensive linemen in February and coach Gary Andersen hopes to have 16 on scholarship by 2015.

He's ranked as the 13th OL prospect and I believe Bucky's # 1 in-state target for the 2015 class.

Sheesh; 6' 5" 305 for a kid that's 17 at the very oldest?

Some of the recruiting sites have him listed at 330; room to grow!

Running the ball never goes out of style at the REAL Tailback U!
