Another player with Wisconsin Badger connections enters transfer portal

The Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball offseason is underway with the NCAA transfer portal immediately heating up.

South Dakota State forward William Kyle III announced his entry into the transfer portal on Monday, and he has a strong connection with the Badgers’ point guard Chucky Hepburn.

The two players were teammates in high school in Bellevue, Nebraska, and Kyle could be a perfect fit for the hole graduating forward Tyler Wahl is leaving in Wisconsin’s frontcourt.

The 6-foot-9, 230-pound athlete spent two seasons with the Jackrabbits, most recently averaging 13.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game in his sophomore campaign.
