Ashford, a three-star recruit in the Class of 2021, saw action in four games in 2022 before sustaining an injury that cost him the remainder of the season.
The redshirt sophomore joins Avyonne Jones as the two cornerbacks who recently hit the transfer portal, thinning out the roster as the Badgers get closer to their 85-man scholarship roster for 2023.
However, Wisconsin may not be done with the position, as they’ve offered a few cornerbacks in the transfer portal, potentially looking to add depth to a young room behind starters Alexander Smith, Ricardo Hallman, and Jason Maitre.
