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.
