Another day, another Wisconsin football upperclassmen has decided to enter his name into the NCAA transfer portal.
On Monday, Seth Currens opted to put his name into the portal in an attempt to look for a new home for his senior season, first reported by Evan Flood of 247 Sports.

The redshirt junior tight end was an active member across all phases of the special teams, but has struggled to find a home positionally since joining the program in 2016. A three-star safety recruit out of Ohio, Currens was a bit of a tweener in terms of size and speed for the safety position, and made a switch to inside linebacker at the midpoint mark of his career, before ultimately moved to tight end after a rash of injuries swamped that position this fall.
For his career, Currens played in 27 games and totaled four tackles, including one against Ohio State this year which should probably count as two because the Buckeyes were that good.
Currens likely departure will leave a mark primarily on special teams, but will also open up another scholarship available for the 2020 class which currently is at or slightly above capacity.
Currens is a personal finance major, and will seek a new home for next season where he will have to sit out due to NCAA transfer rules. Best of luck!
