Kodanko takes in first practice

With his brother already on the Wisconsin roster, 2014 offensive lineman Kory Kodanko made the trip to Madison for the Badgers' first spring practice last Saturday.
"It was a great practice and it's a great atmosphere there," Kodanko told "I love the coaching staff and it's a great place to be.
"I haven't heard a ton from Wisconsin but I'm looking forward to hearing more from them. I'm still trying to get my name out there more."
Kodanko's brother, Riki Kodanko, is a walk-on lineman entering his redshirt junior season for UW. Riki has been a trusted resource early in the process.
"Him and I talk all the time and I look up to him," Kory said. "He's comfortable with whatever school I want to go to. I saw him go through the recruiting process and he's walking me through it. But like I said, it's still early and he understands where I'm at right now."
At 6-foot-9 and 342 pounds, Riki is very much a bigger brother physically in comparison to Kory, who is stands 6-foot-6 and 315 pounds.
"I'm still growing but I don't know if I'm going to be 6-foot-9," said Kory, from West De Pere High School. "That's kind of a long-shot right now. I hope I can get that tall but I'm not sure."
In addition to the Badgers, Kory is hearing from a handful of other teams but admits he's still in the early stages of his recruitment.
"It's really early but I've heard from a few Big Ten schools, a few schools in the SEC and some Ivy League schools because of my grades," he said. "I want to get out and make some visits but I think I'll have a better idea after the spring."
