Brookins drops Minnesota for Wisconsin

The Badgers have lured three-star cornerback Keelon Brookins (Oakdale, Minn./Tartan) away from Minnesota, according to multiple sources. He originally picked the Golden Gophers in February.

Iowa State, Michigan State, Missouri and Nebraska also expressed interest in the 5-foot-11, 185-pound defender.

Prior to his junior year, Brookins posted a 4.6 40-yard dash, 4.32 20-yard shuttle and 35-inch vertical on the combine circuit.

Wisconsin now has 12 pledges for 2013.
