One of the surprising developments going into the start of fall camp was when scholarship athletes Kevin Estes and Krenwick Sanders were both left off the 105-man camp roster. While they remained on scholarship, it was a move that threw their future status with the Badgers into question.

This weekend, Sanders asked for and received a release to transfer from Wisconsin, according to 247sports. The Wisconsin State Journal’s Jason Galloway confirmed Ryan Bartow’s report.

Sanders, a three-star wide receiver from Jesup, Ga., was once committed to Georgia before joining UW’s class of 2014. He came into the program with momentum from a strong senior season, coming to Wisconsin with nose tackle and fellow Georgia native, Jeremy Patterson.

After a big fall camp, the 6’2, 208-pound Sanders was able to see the field as a true freshman in 2014 — though he was only able to reel in one catch. He redshirted in 2015, and ultimately was lost in the shuffle amidst the current roster of wide receivers and the intriguing freshmen of the class of 2016.

Sanders will lose a year of eligibility should he decide to transfer to an FBS program due to NCAA rules. Should he decide to drop down a level, he will remain a redshirt sophomore.
