Havenstein commits to Wisconsin

Just got off the line with Linganore's All-Met mountain of an offensive lineman, Robby Havenstein, who has committed to play for Wisconsin. Havenstein said that he chose the Badgers over Maryland.

"It was just a good place, a good fit for me," said Havenstein, who is 6 feet 7 and 315 pounds. "I was going back and forth between Maryland and Wisconsin and felt Wisconsin was a better place."

That has to hurt Maryland, which went 0-for-2 against the Big Ten for Linganore's two standouts. Fullback Zach Zwinak previously committed to play for Penn State.

Havenstein said he liked that Wisconsin was located in a college town (Madison, instead of College Park) and that he enjoyed his official visit there last month. He didn't feel the need to bother with an official visit to Maryland; both he and Zwinak will scrap their visits planned for December.

Have to say, when Linganore Coach Rick Conner first told me that Zwinak and Havenstein planned their official visits to Maryland for December, I thought it didn't look good for the Terps. Too often, recruits will get wowed on a campus trip and make their college choices; waiting til the last minute to visit College Park seemed like an odd plan.

Havenstein said he reached his decision last week, then took his father's advice to wait a few days to make sure he was happy with it before making the news public.

He is the second local senior to commit to the Badgers; Good Counsel defensive back Frank Tamakloe pledged to Wisconsin over the summer.
