New wide receiver offer

db]Joe Rudolph[/db] is at it again.

Heading into his second season as the tight ends coach at the University of Wisconsin, Rudolph recently extended an offer to his fourteenth known uncommitted prospect in the Buckeye State.

[Rudolph, who on Sunday offered Bobby Swigert of Louisville, Ohio, landed four talented prospects in the class of 2009: Jeff Duckworth, Pat Muldoon, Chris Borland and Brian Wozniak.

Monday night, BadgerBlitz.com caught up with Swigert, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound receiver, to discuss his newest offer and his relationship with Rudolph.

"Yeah, they offered," stated Swigert about the Badgers. "It actually happened last night (Sunday). They've been sending me letters and stuff. Coach Rudolph, he's been recruiting me. He came to the school and called me last night to offer.

"He's been a really great guy," he continued. "He's told me about all of Wisconsin's credentials. He makes it sound like an amazing place. I've heard the campus is amazing. I really can't wait to get up there."

When asked about the Wisconsin program, Swigert admittedly didn't know a lot of details about the university.

"The extent of what I know is basically just watching them on television," he said. "I've heard a lot of great things about the campus. I don't really know anything specific. I'll definitely make it up this summer."

Of his current offers, "Michigan, Pitt, Indiana, and Colorado stand out." That said, a couple of big-time Midwest programs have expressed interest and would like to see Swigert in camp.

"They've (Ohio State) visited and used their call on me," Swigert said. "I'm going to be camping there on 14th… their one-day camp. I actually grew up as a Notre Dame fan. They told me that I'd need to perform well at their camp in order for them to offer. I might go do that, but I still haven't decided."

Swigert, who has recorded a 4.47 40-yard dash, is also a standout on the defensive side of the ball. Only a select few schools have shown interest in Swigert as a cornerback.
