Konz was a three-year starter for Wisconsin. Injuries have limited Konz in each of the past three years, missing a total of seven games over that span. He missed five games over the past two years due to ankle injuries. And he missed two games as a redshirt freshman with blood clots in this lungs. But he still managed to start a total of 31 games over three seasons with the Badgers.
Konz likely will surpass Joe Hawley as the heir apparent to Todd McClure in the middle, but also could potentially play some guard until that time comes. He was widely considered the top-rated center in this year’s draft class.
