The Wisconsin Badgers are losing one of their transfer linebackers, as Jahsiah Galvan flipped his commitment to Stanford on Sunday.

Originally from Northern Iowa, Galvan chose Wisconsin originally following an official visit, but the Badgers’ linebacker room quickly became crowded.

Following Galvan’s commitment, the team landed UNC transfer Sebastian Cheeks, Arkansas linebacker Jaheim Thomas, and USC transfer Tackett Curtis at linebacker, leaving less room for Galvan to carve out a role in the two-deep.

Additionally, the Badgers got William & Mary’s John Pius and Syracuse’s Leon Lowery as transfers at outside linebacker.

Now, Galvan will head to Stanford, where he’ll join former Badgers’ coaches Bobby April and Mark D’Onofrio.

The Badgers have a plethora of linebackers now, as the three transfers are joined by a number of incumbents at the position, including starter Jake Chaney, Christian Alliegro, Bryan Sanborn, and Tyler Jansey.

Wisconsin was originally over the scholarship count for the upcoming season by a few, so while they’ll miss out on a staff target in Galvan, they’re one step closer to solving that issue.
