Wisconsin hoops adds commitment from veteran 7-footer via transfer portal
Wisconsin has filled one need for its 2021-22 basketball roster by adding a veteran inside presence via the transfer portal.
On Saturday afternoon, center Chris Vogt shared a graphic via Twitter, indicating his plans to transfer to the Badgers. Vogt has already played four seasons of college basketball with two seasons each at Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati.

The 7-foot-1 Vogt has career averages of 6.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks while shooting 61% from the floor in 101 career games (52 starts). His best season came in 2019-20 when he averaged 11 points per game for the Bearcats.
Coming out of the 2020-21 season, the Badgers were in need of some depth on the inside after a few key departures. Seniors Micah Potter and Nate Reuvers announced they would not be returning for the extra season of eligibility provided by the NCAA, opting instead to pursue other opportunities.
Both Reuvers and Potter were key contributors for Wisconsin this past season while also leading the team in blocks at 1.3 and 0.7 per game, respectively. Hopefully, Vogt is able to provide some depth and stability to the Badgers this season.
