MADISON - Freshman running back Quincy Landingham will transfer from the University of Wisconsin according to head coach Bret Bielema.
Landingham played in six games, mostly on special teams and also saw first action of career at RB, carrying three times for 16 yards in win over Northern Illinois on Oct. 20. He graduated from high school a semester early and joined Badgers in spring of ‘07, but sustained fall camp knee injury and did not return until the third week of season.
"Quincy has come into a situation where he came in and discussed with me a transfer, so he hasn't been practicing with us this week and that's something he has decided to do," said Bielema after Saturday's practice.
Coming out of Lahser High School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, Landingham was rated by Scouts, Inc. as the No. 30 safety in the country, but was also a standout running back who rushed for 1,276 yards and 21 TDs, along with two kickoff returns for TD, as a senior.
