MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A former University of Wisconsin football recruit has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a woman during a visit to the Madison campus last December.

A jury in Dane County convicted 18-year-old Dominic Cizauskas of third-degree sexual assault Wednesday night. Prosecutors say the linebacker from Mukwonago sexually assaulted an acquaintance in her dorm room.

The woman and Cizauskas testified that they had consensual sex several times in the past. Prosecutors argued that no matter what had happened in the past, the woman did not want to have sex with him that night and said no.

The State Journal says Cizauskas faces up to five years in prison when he's sentenced in about two months.
