Brookfield East's Alec James Signing with Wisconsin Badgers
The 6-foot-4, 225-pound senior will be signing his letter of intent to the Badgers next week on National Signing Day.
The senior gave non-binding oral commitment last summer to the University of Wisconsin-Madison but began looking at other schools when Coach Bret Bielema left UW for Arkansas in December.
James considered Oregon, Michigan State and Arkansas.
A visit to UW this past weekend to meet with Coach Gary Andersen and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda might have been the deal closer for James.
James is scheduled to sign next Wednesday on National Signing Day.
