BREAKING: Badgers land commitment from transfer OLB

The Badgers have landed their first transfer in the upcoming cycle.

NCAA Football: Wisconsin at Minnesota Milwaukee Journal Sentinel-USA TODAY NETWORK

The Wisconsin Badgers have landed a commitment from transfer outside linebacker Leon Lowery, he announced on Sunday.

Lowery, a transfer from the Syracuse Orange, will have two years of eligibility left upon his transfer.

The outside linebacker recorded 46 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and 7.5 tackles for loss with Syracuse in 2023, including two sacks against Clemson and four pressures versus North Carolina in back-to-back weeks.

However, Lowery wasn’t as productive in the later weeks of the season, ultimately transferring out of Syracuse.

A 6’4, 240-pound outside linebacker, Lowery will look to provide the Badgers with some extra production at outside linebacker after Wisconsin got just 8.5 sacks out of their starters at the position.

Lowery is the first transfer that Wisconsin has landed in the cycle, and is one of two transfers that the Badgers hosted on visits this past weekend, alongside Penn graduate transfer defensive lineman Joey Slackman.

The Badgers also hosted 2024 defensive lineman Ernest Willor Jr. on an official visit this past weekend.
