Badger transfers to Pitt
A redshirt freshman who was projected to be a starter in the Wisconsin football secondary this fall has reportedly transferred. WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh says safety Reggie Mitchell has been released from his scholarship with Wisconsin and he'll join the Pitt Panthers.
Mitchell, a native of the Pittsburgh, impressed the new Badger coaches during the spring practices. Last month, Wisconsin Coach Gary Andersen said he thought Mitchell would open the season as a starting safety along with Dezmen Southward.
Southward is the only returning Wisconsin starter in the secondary. The Badgers are also looking to replace the departed Shelton Johnson, Devin Smith and Marcus Cromartie.
