Wisconsin Wins Appeal for Former Hawk Hoops Recruit

Posted:

It appears the Wisconsin Badgers are very close to signing former Iowa Hawkeye recruit Ben Brust.

The six-two guard from Illinois was released from his scholarship to Iowa when Todd Lickliter was fired last month.

Brust lost an appeal to the Big Ten transfer rule which dissallows an athlete who signs with one Big 10 school from receiving financial aid from another member institution.

The University of Wisconsin then filed and won an appeal on behalf of brust which will let him now receive a scholarship from another Big 10 school.
