Whether it’s the new age of college football, playing time issues, a slow start to Wisconsin’s season, or some combination of all three, the Badgers have now seen four players transfer out of the program in the last ten days.
First reported by Wisconsin beat writer Jesse Temple of The Athletic, fullback Quan Easterling and cornerback Donte Burton have both entered the transfer portal. Easterling was a 2019 three-star recruit out of Ohio and becomes the third offensive player, alongside wide receiver Devin Chandler and center Kayden Lyles, to enter the portal this week.
Burton appeared in a game during every year of his Wisconsin career, and has five starts to his name as a Badger. He was a 2018 three-star recruit out of Georgia, and appeared in three games this season with the last coming in the win over Illinois.
