The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Sprout played defensive end for Madison Memorial, which shared the Big Eight Conference football title with Sun Prairie this fall.

Sprout was an All-City football selection on defense and earned honorable-mention recognition on the Big Eight all-conference football team.

The left-handed batting Sprout also plays baseball for the Spartans. He primarily is a first baseman but also can play outfield and designated hitter.

Carroll is an NCAA Division III program in Waukesha.

Sprout committed Tuesday night. 

Sprout tweeted Wednesday afternoon: "Blessed to announce my commitment to continue my academic, football, and baseball career at Carroll University. Excited to be a Pioneer!"
