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.
