The Wisconsin Badgers and Graham Mertz era didn’t go as many expected. The former four-star prospect out of high school had pretty high expectations when arriving in Madison. The Wisconsin QB entered the transfer portal and ends his Badger career with 5,405 passing yards, 38 touchdowns, and 26 interceptions. Mertz has a career completion percentage of 59.5%. After a promising redshirt freshman season, he struggled in his sophomore year. He had a nice bounce back his junior year. He threw for 2,136 yards and 19 touchdowns this season. Initially we thought that Mertz committed to Kentucky, however that wasn’t the case. Today we found out Mertz committed to a new SEC school.

According to G. Allan Taylor the former Wisconsin quarterback has committed to the University Of Florida. This comes just weeks after Mertz announced that he would be entering the transfer portal. As he joins the SEC, Mertz will have his work cut out for him. Florida is scheduled to play Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, and LSU next year. With the addition of Luke Fickell, it was certainly hard to see a spot for Mertz moving forward. Talent was never an issue. The issue was consequently turnovers and footwork. Something that can be worked on in Florida. Mertz was always a great teammate and a great individual. It has been made clear that he will be missed in that locker room. Once a Badger, always a Badger!
