The Wisconsin football team has lost one of their top offensive weapons to the transfer portal this morning after an announcement was made.
Chimere Dike, the leading receiver in 2022 for the Badgers, had nearly half of his production cut this season due to the poor Wisconsin offense. Dike averaged 17.3 yards per reception this season as quarterbacks Tanner Mordecai and Braedyn Locke both struggled. The Senior wide receiver will look to play his remaining eligibility elsewhere.
Wisconsin Football Loses Star Receiver Chimere Dike to Transfer Portal
Wisconsin football has lost another player to the transfer portal, but this time, the Badgers are losing solid production. While Chimere Dike was practically non-existent for the Badgers this season, it was largely due to the overarching offensive struggles the team endured.
This past season, Dike recorded 19 receptions for 328 yards and one touchdown. The receiver had arguably his best game this season during the 31-22 loss to Washington State as he recorded four receptions for 75 yards. Dike also played well against the Minnesota Golden Gophers as his 35-yard reception helped set up a score for the Badgers.
A season ago, Dike led the Wisconsin football team with 44 receptions and 653 receiving yards. Dike also recorded six receiving touchdowns and one rushing touchdown for the Badgers. The receiver solidified himself as a potential offensive threat when he hauled in ten receptions for 185 yards and three touchdowns against the Northwestern Wildcats.
While this season was disappointing for the Badgers and Dike, the receiver still has plenty of talent and can certainly make a difference on any team.
Wisconsin Badgers Football Prepares for Bowl Game Following Transfers
Wisconsin football will now have to prepare themselves for their upcoming bowl game clash against the Louisiana State Tigers without a top offensive option. While Chimere Dike has already announced his transfer intentions, other players may follow suit which could impact the roster Wisconsin has available against LSU.
