A lot of questions were raised about the future of goalie Aaron Crandall, who was offered a scholarship by Wisconsin in November of 2007, when the Badgers got a commitment from Brett Bennett in early February.
The Wisconsin State Journal talked to Crandall and cleared up some of those questions. Crandall was told that he could still come to UW next season, but only as a walk-on with the possibility of earning a scholarship in the future(assuming of course that he got any playing time over the two goalies UW actually wanted). So after getting strung along for the better part of a year, Crandall will return to the USHL to try and earn another scholarship.
Crandall had struggled in the USHL this year, and even though Eaves and the Wisconsin staff had given their word to Crandall, there is nothing prohibiting him from dumping Crandall for his poor play since Crandall never signed a Letter of Intent.
