By Dave Telep,

The Wisconsin Badgers now have four commitments from members of the Class of 2002. On Wednesday, the Badgers and first year head coach Bo Ryan picked up a big man in forward Jason Chappell.

"Wisconsin did a wonderful job recruiting Jason and he felt very comfortable at the school socially, academically and with the basketball staff and team," Worcester Academy head coach Mo Cassara said.

Cassara said that Rhode Island, South Carolina and the College of Charleston were the finalists.

    "Jason is a skilled four-five man who can really shoot the ball," Cassara said. "After a year here, playing against great competition everyday in practice he will be ready for the challenges of the Big Ten.

    "Jason has worked extremely hard over the last few months. He is working really hard in the weight room and is almost 6-10 now."

    Chappell comes from a basketball family. His father Len is one of the all-time greats at Wake Forest and his brother John is a freshman at South Carolina.

    Cassara said that he plans on majoring in engineering and is a 3.6 student with a 28 ACT.

    In addition to Chappell, Wisconsin has commitments from Boo Wade, Alando Tucker and Ray Nixon.
