Lewallen becomes No. 6

After attending Wisconsin's first summer camp in June, 2010 offensive lineman Dallas Lewallen was told by offensive line coach Bob Bostad to contact head coach Bret Bielema.

Last Wednesday morning, when the 6-foot-6, 285-pound offensive tackle called, Bielema officially extended the offer, the first to an in-state offensive lineman in the current recruiting cycle.

Seven days later, when Lewallen and his parents made a return trip to Madison to meet with the coaching staff, the Berlin, Wis., native gave his pledge to the Badger football program.

"I committed to Wisconsin today during my visit," Lewallen communicated to BadgerBlitz.com moments ago via text message.

After Lewallen was one of three players to receive an offer based on his camp performance, many Badger fans anticipated Wednesday's news.

"I pretty much know I'm going to make an early decision," Lewallen said in a previous interview with this site. "I'm going to go back to Madison next Wednesday for a meeting with my family and the coaching staff. I'll probably decide then."

Lewallen becomes the fourth known verbal commit in Wisconsin's 2010 class, joining Marquis Mason, Bryce Gilbert, Frank Tamakloe and Konrad Zagzebski.
