Taylor Currie is a former three star prospect that committed to the Badgers as a part of the 2018 recruiting class. He is the second player from that class to announce his transfer from the program, the other being point guard Tai Strickland back in March.
Currie redshirted this past season and seemed to be a player with a good deal of potential. He is a 6’ 8” skilled forward that has the ability to step out and knock down perimeter shots. He possessed good footwork near the basket in high school and seemed to be a great fit for a Wisconsin program that has developed several players with a similar skill set.
Currie has put his name into the transfer portal and leaves Wisconsin with nine scholarship players remaining for the 2019-2020 season. Of the nine, only six have ever played in a Wisconsin uniform.
There is no doubt that head coach Greg Gard and his staff will need to be heavily involved with the grad transfer market for the remainder of the spring and early summer just to fill out some of the roster. The Badgers probably need to add one or two more players that are immediately eligible. At the very least, this can help build some needed depth.
