Eau Claire (WQOW) — Eau Claire Memorial junior running back Loyal Crawford will call Madison his new home, as he officially verbally committed to Wisconsin Thursday afternoon.
Crawford picked up an offer from the Badgers last week, after missing the final five games of 2018 with a broken collarbone against Chippewa Falls in week 5. The junior still rushed for 689 yards and eight touchdowns on the season, and is expected to be a big piece of the Old Abes’ offensive attack in 2019.
High School football practices begin on Tuesday, August 6. The News 18 “Countdown to Kick-off” Special will air on Wednesday, August 21 at 6:30 p.m.
