University of Wisconsin men’s basketball coach Greg Gard filled another need for his program on Saturday.

Transfer center Chris Vogt announced he was joining the Badgers, filling a spot that had been depleted after the departures of big men Nate Reuvers, Micah Potter and Joe Hedstrom this offseason. Reuvers and Potter turned pro and Hedstrom transferred to Valparaiso.

State Journal beat reporters Colten Bartholomew and Jim Polzin get together over Zoom and discuss the news coming from Badgers football spring practices and basketball coaching rumors. As spring practices come to a close, Colten gives you some thoughts on the biggest winners, the questions that remain and what players need to show more. Jim then breaks down the situation with Badgers basketball assistant coach Alando Tucker possibly leaving the program.

UW will be the third stop on Vogt’s collegiate journey, which started at Northern Kentucky. After two years at Northern Kentucky, Vogt transferred to Cincinnati, where he’s played in 53 games over the past two seasons.

The 7-foot-1, 260-pounder posted on his Twitter that he had shoulder surgery this offseason.

In his junior year with the Bearcats, he averaged 11.0 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game, but his minutes and averages dropped this past winter. He scored 5.0 points and pulled down 3.5 rebounds per game for the Bearcats.

Vogt is the third transfer to select the Badgers this offseason, joining Wake Forest point guard Jahcobi Neath and UNLV guard Isaac Lindsey. Lindsey, a former Mineral Point athlete, entered the transfer portal and will join UW as a preferred walk-on.
