Skyler Meyers’ stint at Wisconsin was very brief.
On Wednesday, Cole Cubelic of SEC Network reported that Meyers, a three-star member of the Badgers’ 2019 recruiting class has already entered the transfer portal. He originally committed to Wisconsin in November 2018 and put his signature on the dotted line during the Early Signing Period.
It’s not clear why Meyers decided to enter his name in the transfer portal.

Meyers’ entering the transfer portal doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be transferring, as players can return to their home school if that’s the best opportunity. Still, it’s interesting that a member of the 2019 recruiting class is already considering a change.
A 6-foot-3, 200-pound linebacker, Meyers is a native of Blue Springs, Missouri. He was ranked as the No. 74 outside linebacker in the 2019 class and the 22nd-best prospect out of his home state.
Wisconsin was the only Power Five program to offer Meyers, but he did receive several offers from FBS and FCS programs, including Air Force, Army, Colorado State, Navy and Wyoming.
Per 247Sports’ rankings, Wisconsin’s 2019 class consisted of 19 members and ranked 27th national and sixth in the B1G.
