On Sunday evening, Wisconsin Badgers quarterback Deacon Hill announced that he will enter the transfer portal. The freshman quarterback was with the program for two seasons.
Hill took to Twitter to announce his decision:
“I want to thank everyone from the Wisconsin football program for giving me the opportunity to grow into the athlete and man I am today,” Hill wrote in a statement on social media. “It is such a privilege to be surrounded by incredible teammates, coaches, and advisors. As well as the team managers who I’ve become close friends with, and I will always cherish the friendships I have made here. With that being said, after a lot of self-reflection, prayer, and difficult conversations with my family, I have officially decided to enter my name in the Transfer Portal.”
“This is not a decision I have taken lightly, and while I know I will miss my family here in Madison immensely, I believe this is an important step in continuing to grow and move forward in my football career. I love this team with all my heart, and I am confident that the relationships I have built in Madison will last a lifetime,” Hill continued. “To my teammates, I love each of you and sincerely wish you nothing but the best. Thank you Wisconsin football, and thank you Madison.”

The decision from Hill comes shortly after Paul Chryst was fired as head coach. Chryst recruited Hill back in 2021.
In his time as a Badger, Hill appeared in one game. The 6-foot-3, 250-pound quarterback was a three-star recruit and a top 500 prospect in the 2023 class. Also, Hill ranked as the No. 39 quarterback in the country.
The California native now enters the portal with three years of eligibility remaining. As a former three-star recruit, he will garner some attention in the portal.
