Cole LaCrue is now a Badger
The early signing period for college football is only a few hours in, but the Wisconsin Badgers are busy welcoming several new players. The Badgers saw several big blockers sign their NLI Wednesday morning. Now the Badgers have a quarterback officially joining the class of 2023. Three-star quarterback Cole LaCrue committed to Wisconsin in November and is now a Badger.
According to a statement by Wisconsin Football, LaCrue signed his NLI Wednesday morning.
LaCrue is graded by 247 Sports as a three-star quarterback and is the 49th-ranked quarterback for the 2023 class. The six-foot-two, 190-pound quarterback, is a Colorado native. Per WSH Media files, LaCrue has ambitions for the starting job at Wisconsin early in his college career:
“Cole’s High School coach said this about LaCrue, “He is ultra-competitive, but it’s not overbearing. He is going to come in, and he is going to want to compete right away for the starting position. He is going to do everything that he can… studying and learning the offense to put himself in a position where he can try to step in and be a starter.”
The Badgers expect to see former Oklahoma quarterback Nick Evers transfer shortly into the Badgers program. We’ll see how LaCrue can compete against the former four-star prospect Evers.
