Wisconsin WR planning visit to Rutgers after entering transfer portal
Wisconsin receiver Aron Cruickshank entered the transfer portal following the Badgers’ 2019 season, and now he’s looking at another B1G program as a potential destination.
According to 247Sports, Cruickshank has set an official visit for Rutgers, which recently named Greg Schiano as the next head coach of the program. Cruickshank was a three-star member of Wisconsin’s 2018 recruiting class and appeared to be working his way into a more prominent role with the Badgers.
In Wisconsin’s Rose Bowl loss to Oregon, Cruickshank fielded four kickoffs for 194 yards and a touchdown. He returned two kickoffs for scores in the 2019 season. For the year, Cruickshank finished with 674 return yards, 138 rushing yards and 29 receiving yards. He accounted for three total touchdowns.
Cruickshank is a native of Brooklyn, New York, so a return to the East Coast would be somewhat of a homecoming, if he was to commit to Rutgers.
Cruickshank would have two years of eligibility remaining, as well as one year as a redshirt available. If he was forced to sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules, he would retain those two seasons of eligibility.
Rutgers finished the 2019 season with a 2-10 record.
