In March, Casey Roepke was the only freshman named to the all-state team by the Wisconsin Hockey Coaches Association.

On Tuesday, he announced that he has committed to play for the University of Wisconsin men's hockey team.

Roepke, a defenseman at University School of Milwaukee who lives in the Washington County town of Erin, could join the Badgers as early as 2020.

He was an honorable mention all-state selection at University School, where he had five goals and 19 points in 26 games.

Roepke, 15, played before and after the high school season for Team Wisconsin's under-14 team. There, he was known as a player who generates offensive chances without sacrificing defensive responsibilities.

He is the third 2002-born player known to have committed to the Badgers, joining forwards Isaac Novak and Tanner Latsch.
