Wisconsin releases Uthoff to attend any non-Big Ten school

[ 0 ] April 19, 2012 |

The University of Wisconsin has issued a release to Cedar Rapids native Jarrod Uthoff on the condition that he not transfer to any school in the Big Ten conference.

The text of the news release is as follows:

Here is a brief synopsis of the transfer and appeal process as it pertains to Jarrod Uthoff.

It is incorrect that Uthoff requested “permission to contact” 25 schools. He has requested “permission to contact” 16 schools, 4 of which were denied.

Uthoff appealed 3 of the 4 schools that were denied.

Uthoff visited with both Associate Athletic Director Justin Doherty and Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez Thursday morning as part of the appeal process.

Doherty, Alvarez and head coach Bo Ryan then met and collectively came to a decision that the University of Wisconsin Athletic Department has lifted “permission to contact” restrictions on ANY school outside of the Big Ten Conference.

Ryan is supportive of denials of Big Ten institutions only and has wanted the appeals process to serve as a means for dialogue to occur between Uthoff and UW Athletics administration.

Uthoff has been notified of these decisions.

If Uthoff wishes to further appeal the “permission to contact” denial to any Big Ten university, he may request a hearing to the Chair of the Athletic Board within 8 business days.
