Former University of Pittsburgh running back Rachid Ibrahim announced Monday night his transfer to the University of Wisconsin.

The soon to be junior running back has been away from game action for a while since redshirting prior to the 2015 season where he suffered a torn achilles tendon. His last carry as a Pittsbrugh Panther came in 2014 where he posted a stat line of 33 carries for 263 yards as well as 11 receptions for 73 yards.

Ibrahim will join the Badgers as a graduate transfer and can play right away in 2017. He will most likely not be a difference maker for the 2017-18 Badger squad, considering Chris James and Bradrick Shaw have more or less been determined the starting running backs. Ibrahim will most likely serve as a precautionary back who will be ready to step should injuries plague the upcoming season.
