Former Wisconsin outside linebacker joins Badgers’ recruiting department

Former Wisconsin outside linebacker Izayah Green-May has returned to the Badgers program to work in the recruiting department, according to his post on X.

Green-May initially joined the program as a four-star recruit in the class of 2017. He redshirted his first season before appearing in six games for the Badgers as a freshman in 2018.

Injuries then defined the rest of his collegiate career. The promising outside linebacker was atop the depth chart entering both 2019 and 2020 before injuries in the opening game derailed his season.

His Badgers career ended with eight tackles, one tackle for loss and one sack.

Green-May transferred to Northern Illinois for the 2022 campaign after an injury-riddled five-year Wisconsin career. His final season became his best, as the former Badger recorded 34 tackles, five tackles for loss, three sacks, three pass deflections and two fumble recoveries.

He now joins Luke Fickell’s recruiting department as a bridge from the old program to the new.
