CB Sojourn Shelton picks Wisconsin

10/10/2012

Four-star cornerback Sojourn Shelton (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./Plantation), a one-time Florida State verbal, is now set to play in the Big Ten for Wisconsin, multiple sources report.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, Shelton broke the news by changing his name on his Twitter account to "Badger Boy" and posted, "Committed To The University Of Wisconsin #OnWisconsin."

Shelton, who made an official visit to Wisconsin for the weekend of Aug. 31, later told the Sun-Sentinel in a text message, "It was the right time. [Wisconsin] feels like home. I'm ready to end the recruiting and focus on the rest of the season and school."

ESPN calls him "a smaller cover corner who mixes a good combination of quickness and speed with impressive savvy and confidence."

Akron, Cincinnati, Iowa State, Nebraska, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Central Florida, Wake Forest and West Virginia also extended scholarship offers to the 5-foot-10, 152-pound senior.

This offseason, Shelton posted an electronically timed 4.68 40-yard dash, 4.19 20-yard shuttle, 34.4-inch vertical and 83.67 SPARQ at a Nike SPARQ Combine.

The Badgers now have five four-star prospects and 15 overall commitments for 2013.
