Wisconsin officially lands SMU tranfer QB Tanner Mordecai

After multiple reports of SMU transfer quarterback Tanner Mordecai linked to Wisconsin, the Badgers have officially landed the senior transfer.

Mordecai made things official on Twitter earlier Friday afternoon.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank Southern Methodist University, faculty, staff, and football program,” said Mordecai on Friday.

“After conversations with Coach Fickell and Coach Longo, I am excited to announce I will utilize my last year of eligibility at the University of Wisconsin.”

Mordecai immediately becomes the expected 2023 starter in a quarterback room that also includes Oklahoma transfer Nick Evers.

Mordecai had 7,152 passing yards with a staggering 72 touchdowns and 22 interceptions over a pair of seasons as SMU’s starting quarterback. He began his career as an Oklahoma Sooner, where the former four-star recruit spent three seasons as a backup before transferring to SMU.

Here is a look at his complete statement:
