Oftentimes, the highest ranked high school heavyweights end up playing football in college instead of wrestling. Trent Hillger is not one of those heavyweights, and has given a verbal commitment to wrestle for the University of Wisconsin.

The two-time Michigan state champ is currently ranked 4th at 285 pounds and is the 25th overall senior on the class of 2017 Big Board. He has been undefeated the past two years for Lake Fenton and is the heir apparent to Connor Medbery for the Badgers.

The two-time state wrestling champ was torn between choosing football or wrestling, but as of now Hillger said his focus is strictly pinning guys on the mat.

“When I took my visit to Wisconsin, I fell in love with the city, coaching staff, wrestlers along with good academics. I felt at home,” Hillger said via text message. “And after talking with the football coaches, wrestling coaches, and strength coach I could also play football my 5th year if I did not redshirt.

“I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the students and fans. It felt like the right place for me.”
