Brown jumps the gun

With his official visit to Wisconsin just a few weeks away, Bowling Green (Ohio.) 2013 Power Forward Vitto Brown opted to commit to the Badgers a bit earlier than planned.

Badger247 confirmed with Michael Duncan of Ohio Basketball Club that Brown gave his verbal commitment to Bo Ryan and Wisconsin.

Brown later spoke of his decision.

"When they came down to visit me yesterday I knew that they were really serious about getting me. So that paired with the way I fit in perfectly with their system and the city of Madison as a whole, made it so that me and my family had to commit."

Brown chose the Badgers over other offers from Kansas State, Nebraska, and Minnesota among others.

Brown is the fourth known commitment in the class of 2013 for Wisconsin, joining Bronson Koenig, Jordan Hill, and Riley Dearing.
