Dominic Cizauskas - Mukwonago

Posted: 3/9/2013 12:36 PM

Dominic Cizauskas - Mukwonago 


I watched the Mukwonago vs Milw Rufus King last night and was very impressed with Dominic Cizauskas as an althlete.  His football playing wt is said to be 235 lbs, and he is listed as only 6'1".  I know this isn't a basketball board, but this guys leaping ability in blocking shots and rebounding was very impressive.  He was a good ball handler (plays guard) and looked very quick.  I have seen him listed as a MLB in football, and would like to know what some you can tell me about his chances of coming to Wisconsin to play for Coach Anderson.  Mukwonago plays Germantown at 8:15 tonight in the championship game if any are interested in commenting on this potential recruit.
Look forward to hearing what some of you can tell me about him.

He must be a beast to handle down low in HS BB.
As you know there is a "super 6" in the '14 class.  I would say he has to be in the
"next 6".

Re: Dominic Cizauskas - Mukwonago 


Both he and Austin Roberts should be offered.Perfect ILB's for a 3-4.

If kids like Cizauskas no longer fit, I think it's going to be a whole different culture and style at UW.

Re: Dominic Cizauskas - Mukwonago 


I was really impressed with this kid he has freakish ability with his body type. He looks like he could step in and be a little bigger version of Chris Borland. Someone posted that he can stuff the basketball from a straight jump under the basket w/no running start. I believe it having seen him block shots yesterday. Mukwonago's football team basically beat King's basketball team.

Re: Dominic Cizauskas - Mukwonago 


Good comparison to Borland, and may be even more athletic.  The Mukwonago players also play football, but they are legit hoopsters also.  Looked like college juniors with the five o'clock shadows, and muscular uppers.  They have a tuff task in facing a very good Germantown team, but think they'll make it a game.

Re: Dominic Cizauskas - Mukwonago 


all depends on his speed, I don't see any D players at LB running more than 4.65ish at ILB under this new regime

Re: Dominic Cizauskas - Mukwonago 


Here are his measurables from last summers Badger camp when he entered their radar. 6'1 - 225, 4.62 - 40, 38 inch verticle. According to some Mukwonago football coaches I spoke to about a month ago he is now weighing over 240.

That has to be the only reason he doesn't have a UW free ride in his back pocket yet. It will be interesting to see how Chris Borland is used this year as Dominic could be just a bigger version. With his hops he could be extremely disruptive at the line ala CB. Man he doesn't need a runway to get off the ground, he has straight up jumping ability that's rare for a someone with his football body. Please, Please, Please get this guy!!!

He is just fine at one of the mlb postions in the 3-4

I don't really participate too much on the football boards, but I wanted to see if anyone was talking about him. That allyoop was pretty amazing for someone his size.

They'll offer him eventually. It's a good size class - even if they think they can improve recruiting that's only going to happen at the margins. They'll eventually figure out that they're not going to get 25 guys with more potential than Cizauskas.

Re: Dominic Cizauskas - Mukwonago 


He ran a 4.62 at the Badger camp this summer with the Badger coaches controlling the clock, so they already no for certain that he runs a sub 4.65. Even with a different coaching staff speed can't be the concern.

Certainly has the motor and the instincts.  It's always hard for me to know for sure how fast a player is in these highlight films. (not saying he isn't fast, I just can't tell)

Not great numbers out of roberts hopefully a winter in the weight room will improve his speed.

I don't know how that shuttle time stacks up but when I watch him I see a kid who is a little slow to accelerate, pretty iffy on the change of direction, adequate top-end speed and a very good tackler.  That sounds more like the profile of an ILB the old staff would like more than the new one.  That extra split second it take to change direction is the difference between Braxton Miller going for 40 or being tackled at the line.  I wouldn't be in any rush to offer him.  If he weren't from Wisconsin he wouldn't even be under consideration for an offer IMO.  More like a preferred walk-on.  Compare his film to Jake Rademacher (PWO from Kettle Morraine).  They're different players but I think it's kind of a toss-up overall.

I believe he's run 4.78 since then and is now owrking on his 40 time, supposeldy the start which suggests what we see on the highlightsa, he looks pretty explosive nad when he makes contact they always move backwards,

Good.  If he improves those first 2-3 steps it could give him a completely different look.  Hopefully he comes to camp and shows what he can do - maybe he'll impress the staff.  From what I hear he's a really high character kid.

Forget the measureables; I just love the name CIZAUSKAS. Brings to mind guys like Zakula, Melka, Kolodziej, Ghidorzi...Tell me that CIZAUSKAS wouldn't look sweet on the back of a cardinal and white jersey!

I did not get to see the final game against Germantown, but in the semi's Nathan
Tanguay looked like a very nice athlete.  Looked him up.
Looks like he is going to NDSU.  http://www.bisonville.com/foru...-Tanguay-Verbal

He really moved well keeping up with the quick athletes King had.
I guess he is not a D1 talent, but looked good to me.

Good luck to Nathan. It was fun watching the Mukwonago football team beat King in BB. They all played with a lot of grit. Nathan might have been one of the best walk-on candidates at UW for the 2013 class if it wasn't for the free ride out of State.

Agreed!  I always liked the mayor Dave's name Shovelshitz, even though he did not play football.

You don't consider Gordon an impact player?

2013 is the year if we can get the QB situation figured out, the OL solidified, the DBs set, a second WR to step up, the TEs to play to their potential, and adjust to a new offensive and defensive scheme.

I actually agreed with you 100% until the coaching changes the last 2 years. This team has the potential to be one of the best, but they have a lot of hurdles to overcome.
