MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The University of Wisconsin says Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will return to Madison this spring to give the school’s commencement address.

Wilson spent his final college season at Wisconsin after starring for three seasons at North Carolina State. The university said Wednesday that Wilson will speak to graduates at Camp Randall Stadium on May 14.

Wilson guided the Badgers to the Rose Bowl during his time in Madison. He led the Seahawks to two consecutive Super Bowls, including Seattle’s first Super Bowl win to cap the 2013 season.

UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank cites Wilson’s feats on the football field as well as his charitable work off the field.
