Wisconsin CB, member of 2022 recruiting class, announces entry to transfer portal
One Wisconsin CB is hitting the transfer portal after spending one season in the Badger program.
The player is Avyonne Jones, a former 3-star recruit out of Southlake Carroll High School in Texas via the 2022 recruiting class. He confirmed his future plans in a note on social media.
“Dear Badger Nation, you are everything a college football player dreams of. You show up rain or shine and you have always shown me and my family love,” wrote Jones. “…After a lot of prayers and conversations with my family, I have decided to enter the transfer portal. I will always have a special place in my heart for this team and this town.”
Thank you for everything Madison. pic.twitter.com/lG7FnRNZq8

Jones appeared in limit action as a true freshman for the Badgers last season with 2 tackles. Some turnover is always expected with a new head coach, but it is noteworthy that Jones waited until after Luke Fickell’s first spring to hit the transfer portal.
