UPDATE, 12:28 p.m. CDT: A UW official confirmed to B5Q that P.J. Rosowski is now on scholarship. We’ve updated the story to reflect that confirmation.
Let the hype flow for Troy Fumagalli.
That makes three first-team nods for the 6’6, 248-pounder before an offensive snap of the 2017 season, as both Athlon Sports and Sports Illustrated also named Fumagalli to their respective lists this summer.
It hasn’t been just Fumagalli receiving love, as right guard Beau Benzschawel also garnered preseason first-team All-America honors from USA Today and offensive lineman Michael Deiter received a third-team nod from Pro Football Focus... despite his name being misspelled and his position being mislabeled.
P.J. Rosowski put on scholarship
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Jeff Potrykus reported on Wednesday night that punter/kickoff specialist P.J. Rosowski has earned a scholarship. A UW official confirmed the news to B5Q on Thursday.
It’s much deserved for Rosowski, who recorded touchbacks on 64.6 percent of his kickoffs (51 of 79) in 14 games last season. That mark placed him No. 15 in the nation and No. 2 in the Big Ten.
