Wilmette, Ill., native Peter Badovinac is as busy as usual these days, visiting four schools over…
Solid Illinois QB Keeping Busy
"I'm hearing from a lot of schools. Wisconsin, Northern Illinois, Northwestern, Purdue, Nebraska, Minnesota, Louisville, Kansas State, Michigan State, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Colorado and Missouri are all writing hand-written letters.
"I went to junior days at Nebraska and Iowa. I went to spring practices and got to sit in on some quarterback meetings at places like Michigan State, Missouri, Northwestern and Michigan State.
"My current favorites are Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Northern Illinois and Purdue."
Badovinac is coached by former Illinois and NFL linebacker John Holicek. We caught up with Coach Holicek and asked him if he could shed some light on his signal caller.
"Peter (Badovinac) is a good football player." Holicek said. "Peter has a good body, a good arm and he's smart. I'd say he's an overachiever. Peter has a good feel for the game and he's still has some room to get better."
Badovinac threw for 1,893 yards and 14 touchdowns as a junior and earned 2nd team all-conference honors. Peter is also solid in the classroom carrying a 97% GPA and scoring 31 on his ACT.
