Wisconsin linebacker Jack Cichy will enter NFL draft

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin linebacker Jack Cichy has decided to forgo applying for sixth year of eligibility with the Badgers and instead will enter the NFL draft.

Cichy made the announcement today in a post on the Players Tribune website. 

Cichy suffered a torn ACL during training camp and missed the entire 2017 season. 

In his blog post, Cichy writes about his decision: 

"Even just typing this out now is … hard, so I’m just going to come out and say it.

I’ve decided not to apply for a sixth year of eligibility and to instead declare for the NFL draft.

I’m going to take my shot and see what happens.

And, the more I think about it, the more it seems kind of fitting. I almost feel like I’ve kind of been here before.

The feeling I’m experiencing right now reminds me of the exact same feeling that welled up inside me when I first set foot on campus.

At that point in my life, I didn’t know what the journey was going to hold for me, but I was beyond excited to find out. I was just a kid everyone doubted who was hoping for a shot to prove people wrong and do something special.

I took a big risk, and anything could have happened.

Fast-forward 4½ wonderful years and, after having the time of my life in Madison, I’m in a similar position.

I’m going to take a risk and give it everything I have and … see what happens."
