Corey Clement Commits to Wisconsin: What 4-Star RB Brings to Badgers
Via 247Sports

The Wisconsin Badgers have just received a commitment from 4-star running back Corey Clement.

Clement took to Twitter to announce his big decision:

Here's what the 4-star back, who had previously decommitted from Pitt, had to say about Wisconsin, via Jared Shanker of ESPN.com:

"I just felt more comfortable than at most other colleges," Clement said. "I felt secure in the campus and felt wanted by Wisconsin and could become a better person. As far as spots and academics, it offered the best package."

Clement is going to be a pretty important pickup for the Badgers, and he becomes the 15th commit for Brent Bielema's 2013 class. He's also the first running back to commit to the class.

What exactly will the Badgers be getting from their newest commitment?

First and foremost, the fact that he's a running back is extremely important, considering that this will be senior Montee Ball's last season at Wisconsin.

Can Clement be the next great Wisconsin RB?

Clement is 5'11'' and 205 pounds according to 247Sports, so he at least compares favorably to Ball (5'11'', 212 lbs) from a size standpoint, but he also has great potential as a runner.

He's very much a north-and-south runner, so he should fit in nicely with what the Badgers try to do on offense. He also possesses good speed and agility—he can make defenders miss or he can outrun them at the second level.

Clement is the No. 14 running back in the nation according to the 247Sports composite rankings, so this is obviously a pretty big recruiting win for the Badgers.

Check out some of Clement's highlights.

As it stands, he's now one of the major players in their 2013 class, and he has the potential to be a great running back for Wisconsin when he does see the field.

All-in-all, this is a great commitment for the Badgers.
