Leo Musso won't have to drive very far to get from home to his new school.

The Waunakee, Wisconsin native, a suburb of Madison, committed to Wisconsin on Friday after receiving a scholarship offer earlier this week. Playing in Camp Randall Stadium won't be much an adjustment for the high school running back, as his high school team has won the last three Wisconsin Division Two state championships inside the stadium.

"It's one of the best feelings ever," Musso told BadgerBlitz.com about his commitment to Wisconsin.

Musso had been being recruited by Paul Chryst, who left Wisconsin to become the head coach at Pitt. Once Chryst left for Pitt he continued to recruit Musso, and Musso was planning on visiting Pitt this weekend. However, once the offer from Wisconsin came in, he decided he'd rather stay home and play for the program he grew up rooting for.

Though he was a running back in high school, it's likely Musso will move to the defensive side of the ball at Wisconsin, possibly at safety.
