Jazz Peavy stays close to home

Receiver Jazz Peavy (Kenosha, Wis./Tremper) won't have to travel far from home to play his college football.

Peavy (6-foot-1, 169 pounds) told ESPN.com in a text message he committed to Wisconsin following the Badgers' camp Sunday.

"It fits me the best academically, athletically and socially," Peavy said.

Peavy is the Badgers' eighth commitment in the 2013 class. Three-star offensive tackle Hayden Biegel also committed Sunday. Wisconsin is expected to take 11 to 12 players in the class.
