The announcement comes on the heels of similar declarations by running back Jonathan Taylor and wide receiver Quintez Cephus.

Biadasz, a native of Amherst, is coming off a junior season in which he won the Rimington Award, given to the nation’s top center, and was named a unanimous first-team All-American.and consensus first-team All-Big Ten.

As a sophomore, Biadasz was an honorable mention All-American and consensus first-team All-Big Ten.

In his three seasons at Wisconsin, Biadasz, who redshirted in 2016, started al 41 games the Badgers played during that span. Taylor rushed for over 6,000 yards as well during that period behind an offensive line anchored by Biadasz.
