The family has been pursuing this for months. Couldn't even get a call-back from the previous staff. AlWood High School is just southwest of Prophetstown so they were much better received by Bielema.
I know walkon's cant eat at the team training table , but he can work out in the weight room. Here's hoping the staff can get the lad to somehow put on about 25-30 lbs of muscle with standard protein from the cafeteria.

That’s great! There haven't been any small school kids from this area for a while that I‘m aware of.

Lucas Althaus from Woohull, IL, signed as PWO. Listed as 6-6, 233 by 24/7 (and unranked).
I don't know squat about him, but love his size. Very similar to Pihlstrom (other than caliber of HS program) and that's turned out well. No reason we can't have a good PWO program.

Not sure about this. I thought that preferred walkons were now allowed to eat at the training table during the season.

I just looked, PWO’s get the same treatment as scholarship players except they have tp pay for tuition, room and board So they can train and eat with the scholarship players
I assume then that regular walk-ons cannot eat at the training table? Crazy considering that trainers and equipment managers could do that just a decade ago.

Really makes me wonder what "board" costs or if it's the same price as reg. students. Heckuva deal if it's the same price.

is Prophetstown HS still called the Prophets ? I recall back in early 70's I was down in CU as a middle school lad and saw a guy with a Prophetstown jock jacket on and the nickname 'Prophets' embroidered in the back rocker. We thought that was kinda funny, but we were like 12 .

speaking of jock jackets, do kids in high schools downstate still wear them?
you dont see them anywhere in the city or suburbs anymore. I mean NONE. too bad.
I loved wearing my wool jock jacket with the leather sleeves. I graduated hs in 1979. They were still big time then

Our new people is the kind of player after working with coaches can be a contributor. Didn’t Wisc produce guys like Althusser often.

I live near the family. Pretty sure both parents are UofI alums. 2 of their other children attended. Smart kid and he's been determined to do this for a few years. AlWood is his school which co-ops with another school. This co-op isn't a perennial football power. Plays basketball ball also and comes from a good family. Congrats to him!!
