Former Wisconsin RB Jalen Berger transfers to a Big Ten school

·1 min read

After being dismissed from the Wisconsin football team in October, running back Jalen Berger announced his transfer decision on Monday afternoon.

The New Jersey native is staying in the Big Ten. Berger is heading to Michigan State to join forces with former Wisconsin director of player personnel Saeed Kahlif, who holds the same role at Michigan State.

Spartan head coach Mel Tucker lands a player who was a four-star recruit in the class of 2020. As a freshman in Madison, Berger averaged 5 yards per carry, totaling 300 yards on 60 carries. He also added a pair of touchdowns on the ground. His 2021 redshirt freshman season saw a decline in playing time with the arrival of Clemson transfer Chez Mellusi. Berger played in three games, amassing 24 carries for 88 yards (3.7 yards per carry).

Next season, Berger will see the Badgers in East Lansing when Wisconsin travels to Michigan State on October 8, 2022.
