Fond du Lac's Braelon Allen announced his decision to attend the University of Wisconsin on his Twitter account Tuesday night.

Allen is headed into his junior year and is the first commitment for the 2022 recruiting class for the Badgers.

The Badgers recruited him as a safety where he had 48 tackles, 4 sacks and 3 interceptions last season as a sophomore for the Cardinals.

He chose Wisconsin over Florida State, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and Notre Dame. The 4-star recruit is ranked as the 116th best player in the country and 6th best safety for the class of 2022.
