Another former Wisconsin Badgers walk-on has an opportunity to play in the NFL, and he joins Bucky’s 5th Quarter’s podcasts to talk about his journey and what’s ahead.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • 00:35-24:30: Inside linebacker Jack Cichy jumps on the show to discuss the visits and workouts he’s taken, along with how his knee is performing and the process of returning from his ACL tear. A great conversation that also touches on some of his former teammates that are heading to the NFL in an attempt to play on Sundays, along with what to expect from T.J. Edwards and the other Wisconsin inside linebackers for 2018.
  • 24:40-27:30: We quickly touch base on some recruiting updates, including some Wisconsin targets committing elsewhere and a new offer by UW to a three-star defensive lineman.
  • 27:40-End of Show: Wisconsin offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph talks with reporters about the progression of younger players like Tyler Beach, Logan Bruss, Jake Ferguson, and true freshmen wide receivers Aron Cruickshank and Taj Mustapha, among other topics from Tuesday media availability.
