Where Wisconsin lands in On3's ranking of transfer portal winners


On3 recently looked at the biggest winners of transfer portal season, and it's no surprise that Wisconsin was near the top.

The Badgers have revamped their coaching staff, quarterback room, and defense in one of the most exciting offseasons in program history.

Wisconsin has brought in not one, not two, but three former four-star quarterbacks (with a fourth one coming in 2024). They also landed the highest-ranked wide receiver in school history.

With a renewed energy on both sides of the ball thanks to Wisconsin's new coaching staff, the Badgers were near the top of On3's transfer portal rankings.

Here is a look at where they landed:
