The Wisconsin Badgers have a new head coach in Luke Fickell. While his hiring was well-regarded by national pundits and college football experts, many Badgers players have entered the transfer portal. This is not too unusual as there is always roster turnover whenever a new head coach is hired. That being said, Fickell and his staff are also hitting the transfer portal hard in ogrder to help field a competitive team in 2023. One player that has been offered a scholarship by Wisconsin is defensive lineman Elijah Jeudy.
