Luke Fickell and the University of Wisconsin football team have been scouring the transfer portal, hoping to find an experienced cornerback the Badgers could plug into its starting lineup for next season. 

A source confirmed to BadgerNotes.com that the Wisconsin Badgers hope to fill that void when they host New Mexico State transfer cornerback Andre Seldon on an official visit to Madison.

The former Aggies standout confirmed he would make his way to UW via a social media post. 


Seldon, a former 4-star recruit who started his college career at Michigan, has a previous relationship with Badgers cornerbacks’s coach Paul Haynes and will visit campus from January 3-5.

After the season, Wisconsin football will need to replace snaps at its starting slot cornerback spot — which Jason Maitre held. They’ll also look to bring in someone who can step into the vacated playing time Alexander Smith played this past season on the boundary. 

Although just 5-foot-9, Andre Seldon could offer a potential solution to those depth problems. He has the type of versatility that the Badgers are looking for, having started 15 games on the boundary for the Aggies and 13 in the slot — totaling 1,265 snaps of experience. 

Pro Football Focus gave Seldon grades of 65.2 and 63.0 the past two seasons, which are both considered above-average, respectively. He registered 96 tackles, 13 PBUs, 4.5 TFLs, and two interceptions while at New Mexico State and has two years of eligibility remaining. 

Wisconsin football is set to return third-team All-American Ricardo Hallman in 2024 and starting boundary cornerback Nyzier Fourqurean. 

We’ll see if the Wisconsin Badgers can close Seldon following his official visit because several Big Ten and SEC programs are also interested in his services. Regardless, this is a nice pull for UW from the portal.
