Commitment to Wisconsin Football

Heiberger was the fifth player to commit to the Wisconsin football team as a part of the 2024 recruiting class. At the time of his commitment, he was a pretty underrated prospect. Since his commitment to the Badgers, his rankings have gone up.

His size and athleticism will allow him to play multiple positions for the Badgers. While his natural position will likely be outside linebacker, he could potentially line up at inside linebacker or with his hand in the dirt on the line.
