Well, maybe he likes cold weather.
The University of Wisconsin has announced that former NC State quarterback and minor league baseball prospect Russell Wilson will play at Camp Randall Stadium this fall, choosing the Badgers over Auburn.
“Russell will come in and compete for the starting quarterback position,” coach Bret Beilema said on UW’s website today. “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.”
Wilson’s choice of Wisconsin means that Auburn’s quarterback battle will remain a three-man event between Barrett Trotter, Clint Moseley, and incoming freshman Kiehl Frazier. There will be no last minute entry from a Cam Newton-type this fall.
