Wisconsin Football Offers Notre Dame Transfer TE Cane Berrong



Wisconsin Badgers Football

Luke Fickell and the Wisconsin football staff have had enough time to evaluate their in-house talent and are now searching for additional depth to add to UW’s roster in 2023.

One position group needing an influx of talent for the Badgers is at a tight end.

To rectify this, coach Gino Guidugli extended an offer on Wednesday to Notre Dame transfer TE Cane Berrong, who entered the portal back in December and has three years of eligibility remaining.

According to the 247Sports Composite, Berrong was the No. 238 overall prospect in the 2021 recruiting class, the No. 10 TE in the country, and the No. 20 player in Georgia.

Since entering the transfer portal, the 6-foot-4, 243-pound TE has picked up offers from New Mexico, Memphis, Cincinnati, SMU, East Carolina, Toledo, Georgia State, Pitt, Furman, Temple, Western Michigan, and several others.

Berrong, a former four-star recruit, appeared in four games during his career at Notre Dame, logging 10 total snaps. However, he got buried on the depth chart following an ACL injury suffered in October of 2021.

As it stands, Wisconsin football has seven tight ends on scholarship: Clay Cundiff, Hayden Rucci, Cole Dakovich, Cam Large, Jack Pugh, JT Seagreaves, and Tucker Ashcraft.

Attempting to add another body with some experience, albeit limited, with remaining eligibility makes a ton of sense.

Cane Berrong announced his scholarship offer from the University of Wisconsin via his Twitter account:
