Kade Pietrzak, a junior from West Fargo High School, announced on his Twitter that he received an offer from the Wisconsin Badgers football program. He is from Fargo, North Dakota, and is a part of the 2025 college football recruiting class.

Pietrzak is a zero-star recruit, according to the 247 Sports website. He is 6’4″ and weighs 270 lbs. There are no stats to show for his 2023 season so far at the high school level. His HUDL can be viewed here:
Some of the things that were listed on his profile are that he can bench press 315 lbs, squat 420 lbs, and power clean 300 lbs. Kade Pietrzak is a pretty strong kid.
Kade Pietrzak Has Received Other College Football Offers Other than the Wisconsin Badgers
Pietrzak, up to this point, has received nine other offers from schools other than the Badgers. There were a couple of other BIG10 schools that have offered him. They were the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Iowa is always a decent college football program every single year, and Nebraska is trying to get its name back on the map under head coach Matt Rhule. Iowa’s head coach is Kirk Ferentz.
Kade Pietrzak also received offers from BIG 12 schools in the Kansas Jayhawks, the Kansas State Wildcats, and the Iowa State Cyclones. Les Miles is trying to change that Kansas football program around.
Some of the other schools that Pietrzak has received offers from are North Dakota, North Dakota State, South Dakota State, and UNLV. It was nice that Luke Fickell’s football program and the Wisconsin Badgers were able to offer him.
However, as a zero-star recruit and a kid from North Dakota, it feels like it would make the most sense for Kade Pietrzak to join an elite FCS program like the North Dakota State Bison or the South Dakota State Jackrabbits. Those two programs have been winning national titles at the FCS level and would maybe benefit from that competition rather than the FBS.
