Luke Fickell is bringing a key offensive line contributor at Cincinnati with him to Madison.

Friday evening, offensive lineman Joe Huber announced he was committing to the Badgers via the transfer portal. Huber is a redshirt sophomore after walking on and redshirting for the Bearcats during the 2020 season.

The former walk-on appeared in 7 games during the 2021 season before turning into a key piece for 2022. Huber was a 13-game starter at right tackle for the Bearcats in 2022 after being placed on scholarship.

Wisconsin will be thankful to add some veteran OL experience and depth to the roster for Fickell’s first season in Madison. Huber’s transfer pledge brings the Badgers up to 5 transfer commitments in the cycle, including a pair of QBs in Tanner Mordecai (SMU) and Nick Evers (Oklahoma).
