Wisconsin has filled out its 2021-22 roster with the addition of Cincinnati transfer Chris Vogt. The 7-foot-1 senior and graduate transfer is the third player the Badgers and head coach Greg Gard have acquired in the transfer portal this off-season, joining Isaac Lindsey (UNLV) and Jahcobi Neath (Wake Forest).


Last season, Vogt averaged 5.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks while averaging 18.5 minutes per game for the Bearcats in 21 starts. As a junior in 2019-20, Vogt started 29 games and put up 11.0 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks while shooting 64.8 percent from the field, which led the American Athletic Conference.

UW will be Vogt’s third stop. The Mayfield, K.Y. native originally began his career at Northern Kentucky, where he spent two seasons. Vogt will provide some much-needed depth and experience to a UW frontcourt, which loses starters Nate Reuvers, Aleem Ford, and Micah Potter. The Badgers do return sophomore Tyler Wahl and a pair of freshmen, Ben Carlson and Steven Crowl, who were both used in reserve duty last season.

Vogt is a former three-star recruit. Per the 247sports composite, he was the nation’s No. 33 ranked center in the class of 2017.
