In the offseason, Russell Wilson became the most sought-after transfer after his release from North Carolina State. He narrowed his list down to two teams: Wisconsin and Auburn.
Everyone knows where he chose to extend his football career.
Before enrolling at Wisconsin, Wilson enjoyed a four-year career at NC State, where he ranks third in ACC history in touchdown passes (76) and 12th in the league's history in passing yards (8,545).
Once in Madison, questions surrounded Russell Wilson's decision-making ability. He was criticized for his low completion percentage and forceful throws into tight coverage at his previous school.
These concerns raised the question: Would these tendencies carry over to Wisconsin?
Given his decorated passing career, we expected Wilson to be a good player for the Badgers.
Did we expect him to be this good?
Wilson leads the country in passing efficiency (196.66) and yards per pass attempt (11.13).
Most impressively, Wilson is fifth in the country in completion percentage (71.6 percent) and has thrown for 21 touchdowns and just three interceptions. These statistics have people most surprised as they run opposite of his 14 interceptions and 58.4 completion percentage as a senior at NC State.
