The Wisconsin Badgers have landed a commitment from Oklahoma Sooners transfer running back Tawee Walker, he announced Friday.

Walker, a junior, rushed for 513 yards and seven touchdowns on five yards per carry in 2023, working in a timeshare with redshirt freshman Gavin Sawchuck.

A 5’9, 215-pound running back, Walker is a second-time transfer, initially moving from Palomar Junior College to Oklahoma before transferring to Wisconsin today.

Walker joins a revamped Badgers running back room that loses top back Braelon Allen, but returns Chez Mellusi, who suffered a season-ending injury in Week 4.

In addition, the Badgers have a talented 2024 running back class with recruits Darrion Dupree, Dilin Jones, and Gideon Ituka all set to join the program.

Walker adds to the depth in the room and could be in line to immediately compete for a spot on the two-deep at running back.

The Badgers now have eight scholarship backs for the 2024 season: Chez Mellusi, Jackson Acker, Cade Yacamelli, Nate White, Tawee Walker, Darrion Dupree, Dilin Jones, and Gideon Ituka.
