A recruit from the University of Wisconsin has been charged with sexual assault after an incident on the University campus in December, according to NBC Sports.

Dominic Cizauskas, a linebacker from Mukwonago has been charged with felony third-degree sexual assault.

Cizauskas' high school posted the $500 bond for his release, but under the terms of his release he will not be able to set foot on the University of Wisconsin or meet with his accuser.

The incident reportedly took place during Cizauskas' official visit to the University, early in the morning of the 14th December. The player had supposedly met with and exchanged several text messages with the victim on the night of the 13th.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports:

"Later, while studying in her room, the student heard someone in the hallway asking directions to her room, and the complaint says Cizauskas then opened the unlocked door and entered the room. The complaint says Cizauskas eventually forced the woman to have intercourse, and she told police the sex was not consensual."

The newspaper also reported that Cizauskas was under the influence of alcohol at the time and had told the victim that he had consumed a number of shots in a short space of time.

There has been no official word on the state of Cizauskas' scholarship to the University but it would seem that Wisconsin now have one less freshman on the roster next year.
