“Fullback City” make its way (reportedly) to the AFC West!

According to Tom Pelissero, Wisconsin Badgers fullback Alec Ingold will head to the Oakland Raiders as an undrafted free agent. A source later on Saturday told B5Q that he will also go to the AFC West organization.

Ingold tweeted on Saturday night:

Ingold came to Wisconsin after an outstanding prep career as quarterback at Bay Port High School in Green Bay, but he first started his Badgers career as an inside linebacker as a freshman during 2015 fall camp.

Injuries to the running back position forced a move to tailback, and Ingold responded in becoming a short yardage threat in his first year in the program. He tallied six touchdowns on just 49 carries.

In 2016, he switched to fullback and has stayed at that position ever since. Last season, he took over the reins full-time from Austin Ramesh and flourished. He earned team captain honors and rushed for 143 yards on 26 carries with six touchdowns while also hauling in five passes for 93 yards and another score.

In his career, Ingold played in 51 games, rushing for 17 touchdowns and catching four more. He combined to get the ball 117 times (103 carries, 14 receptions) during his Wisconsin playing days, and with those 21 scores, he averaged a touchdown once every 5.6 touches.
