Linebacker Dominic D. Cizauskas, a linebacker recruit who had been expected to sign with Wisconsin, has been charged with third-degree sexual assault, the Wisconsin State Journal reports.

Cizauskas allegedly showed up at a woman's dorm room drunk on Dec. 14 and raped her. The woman told police that during one of Cizauskas' visits to campus, the two had been communicating via text message.

According to the complaint, Cizauskas arrived at the female's room just before 1 a.m.

When he arrived, the woman said, Cizauskas told her that he had drunk 10 shots within a half-hour. She told police that after he raped her he left about 2 a.m. but later claimed in a text message to her that she had agreed to have sex with him.

In the Dane County Circuit Court criminal complaint, the woman told police that she had attempted to make Cizauskas leave.

"I tried to make excuses trying to get him to leave," the woman told police, adding that she told him "no" several times. "I didn't know what to do. I was by myself, my roommate went home for the weekend and he's a 200-pound football player and he had been drinking."

The woman told police that she and Cizauskas had previously had consensual sex, but that she had been trying to avoid him during his visits to campus since then.

Cizauskas, a senior at Mukwonago (Wisc.) High, appeared in court on Monday and was released on bond. He is scheduled to return to court on March 31.

Cizauskas committed to the Badgers last June but did not sign with them on National Signing Day.
