Another player from the Wisconsin Badgers football team will enter the transfer portal. Fifth year offensive lineman Kayden Lyles announced his decision to transfer via Twitter tonight.
This is the fifth player to leave the program since the start of the season. Three have entered the transfer portal and two have been dismissed from the team.
It was anticipated that Lyles would be the starting center this season, but he lost the position battle fair and square in Fall Camp to Joe Tippmann.
Lyles still appeared in five of UW’s seven games this season for a total of 115 snaps. Lyles started the game against Michigan due to Tippmann being poked in the eye during pregame warmups, but did not appear in the last two games against Army and Purdue.
The former four-star recruit played in 34 games at UW, starting 16 of those games.
