Howe commits while on campus

Wisconsin expected Kraig Howe to commit during his official visit and the 2015 defensive lineman did just that Saturday evening.
Proud to announce that I committed to the University of Wisconsin... On, Wisconsin!- Kraig Howe (@KraigHowe) January 24, 2015
A former Pittsburgh commit, Howe, 6-foot-3, 265 pounds, is Wisconsin's 25th pledge in the current class. The three-star from Kettering (OH) Archbishop Alter is the third verbal for the Badgers since Paul Chryst's hire in December, joining quarterback Alex Hornibrook and linebacker Alec Ingold.
From recruiting analyst Josh Helmholdt:
Listed at 6-foot-3 and 259 pounds, Howe has always been a combo defensive tackle/defensive end prospect and the question about where he fits best will persist. He has a frame that can play north of 275 pounds in college, but the strength of his game is his quickness. His effectiveness at the point of attack is coming along and Howe was able to get penetration when he kept his pad level low. If I were to wager a guess, the five-technique defensive end will be his spot in college. Howe finished with a team-high eight tackles, including two for loss.
