Uthoff leaving Badger hoops team

Redshirt freshman Jarrod Uthoff has asked for and been granted a release

Jarrod Uthoff

from his scholarship at the University of Wisconsin.

Uthoff was expected to be a big part of the Badgers future and the move comes as a complete surprise to the Wisconsin coaching staff.

Uthoff was Iowa’s Mr. Basketball and the Gatorade Player of the Year after averaging 26.2 points and 11 rebounds a game in his final prep season.

Uthoff will have to sit out a year if he transfers to another Division 1 school.
