In a story that no one imagined would be as national-centric as it has came to a friendly conclusion this afternoon.
Former Wisconsin Badgers basketball player, Jarrod Uthoff is now free to contact any school outside of the Big Ten Conference, including Iowa State, Marquette and the ACC conference which were previously placed on a restriction list.
Head Coach Bo Ryan, Associated Athletic Director Justin Doherty and Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez took part in an appeal process which is summarized below:
Here is exactly how the University of Wisconsin summarized the transfer and appeal process for Jarrod Uthoff:
It is incorrect that Uthoff requested “permission to contact” 25 schools. He has requested “permission to contact” 16 schools, 4 of which were denied.
Uthoff appealed 3 of the 4 schools that were denied.
Uthoff visited with both Associate Athletic Director Justin Doherty and Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez Thursday morning as part of the appeal process.
