The Badgers are reportedly one of numerous schools to express interest in the D-II transfer, though appear to be the only power-conference team.

Greg Gard and his staff are working to replace the departing production of star guard A.J. Storr and recently graduated forward Tyler Wahl. Pyke would create depth in a frontcourt that needs a ton of help.

Union (D2) transfer Jordan Pyke has received interest from the following schools:

Wisconsin
Grand Canyon
Samford
Colorado State
UMass Lowell
Bowling Green
Sam Houston State
Albany
Citadel
Stetson
ORU
Chattanooga
Nicholls
Iona
