West Allegheny’s Mike Caputo verbally commits to Wisconsin

Written by: on Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

For the second consecutive year, the Wisconsin Badgers have landed a Pittsburgh area prep football star.

West Allegheny­ RB/S Mike Caputo verbally committed to Wisconsin today, according to Scout.com. Through his recruiting process, Caputo had amassed double-digit scholarship offers, including offers from Pitt, Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan State and West Virginia.

After transferring from Blackhawk High School, Caputo flourished in West Allegheny’s offense, running for 2,626 yards and 34 touchdowns. He also caught 10 passes for 162 yards, led the Indians in tackles, and was a threat on special teams as well.

As a sophomore at Blackhawk, Caputo ran for 150 yards and two touchdowns as a reserve on a WPIAL AAA runner-up team. The Cougars lost to Thomas Jefferson that year, 34-14.

In his career, Caputo has run for 2,776 yards, leaving him a little more than 1,200 yards shy of the 4,000-yard rushing mark, a plateau reached by 47 other running backs in the league’s storied history.

West Allegheny averaged more than 270 rushing yards per game in 2009, en route to its fifth WPIAL AAA championship since 1997. The Indians scored a school record 490 points and were eliminated in the PIAA semifinals by Manheim Central, 45-27.

Wisconsin received a commitment in the 2010 recruiting class from Brashear’s hard-hitting Manesseh Garner.
