As quarterback Tyle Van Dyke steps onto the Badger field from Miami for the first time, he will be one of the more experienced players on Wisconsin’s offense.
However, head coach Luke Fickell is focusing on his “Air Raid” offense in year two with the Badgers. Bringing in tight end Jackson McGohan from LSU and Tyrell Henry from Michigan State will add nice targets for Van Dyke to throw to.
As 15 players left the Badger roster, Fickell also had to focus on beefing up his defensive line again. The only true defensive lineman he has added so far has been three-star Elijah Hills.
However, Ficklell brought in a bunch of linebackers from the portal. Three-star Jaheim Thomas from Arkansas, four-star Tackett Curtis from USC, three-star Sebastian Cheeks from UNC, and three-star Leon Lowery from Syracuse.
With the defensive strengthening and new options on offense, the Badgers got just what they were asking for from the 2024 transfer portal.
