Goose Creek running back Caleb Kinlaw changes his commitment from Georgia Tech to Wisconsin. The decision to change schools comes after a visit to the Big Ten school this past weekend.

Kinlaw says he had to consider both his academics and his football future in the decision. "Georgia Tech was good academically but Wisconsin is known as a running back university," says Kinlaw. "In the past 20 years they've had a running back rush for 1,000+ yards every year except one."

Kinlaw hopes to be a part of a running back rotation at Wisconsin. "I'd be getting about 20 carries or so a game, which is more than I get now."

Caleb is no stranger to the Big Ten. His older brother, Rodney Kinlaw, went to Penn State. "I like the environment, because I'm used to the Big Ten because of my brother."

"The program is very family oriented and Coach Andersen puts his players first. I'll be getting an education of great value and not far behind GT in the engineering department. Everything about that place is pretty calm and hospitable."

The senior running back has rushed for over 1,000 yards already this season, with 19 touchdowns. Kinlaw missed the past two games with an injury.
