Wisconsin Rapids offensive tackle Hayden Biegel accepted a grayshirt offer from the University of Wisconsin football team on Sunday following the Badgers’ high school summer camp, according to BadgerNation.com.

The 6-foot-6, 245-pound Biegel turned down offers from Illinois, Iowa, Iowa State and Michigan State. The grayshirt offer means Biegel won’t be able to join the team until January 2014, but the Rapids senior-to-be calls it a “blessing” because he wants to add more weight to his frame.

“I just felt the time was right,” Biegel told the website. “I can’t see myself playing at any other school.”

Biegel’s older brother, Vince, is a highly touted linebacker who will join the Badgers in the fall.

Badger Nation also reported that Kenosha Tremper receiver Jazz Peavy committed to UW.

The 6-1, 175-pound Peavy is the eighth verbal commitment in the 2013 class and earned a scholarship offer — his first — following a superb performance at the camp.

“It’s a place that I’ve always wanted to go and it’s been a dream of me,” Peavy told the website. “Everything they offer for you at Wisconsin is just amazing.”

Peavy finished had 22 catches for 400 yards and four touchdowns for the Trojans last season. He also had two rushing touchdowns and 18 solo tackles and two interceptions on defense.
