Wisconsin wide receiver and return specialist Devin Chandler is transferring to the Virginia football program, he announced via social media on Thursday.

Chandler, a redshirt freshman, was Wisconsin’s primary kickoff returner this season before entering the transfer portal after six games. He had a total of 85 kickoff return yards on four attempts for an average of 21.25 yards per return. Chandler did not record a reception this season, as he rarely saw the field on offense.

In four games played in 2020, Chandler had two catches for 28 yards and returned six kickoffs for a total of 156 yards, including a 59-yard return against Wake Forest in the 2020 Duke’s Mayo Bowl.

Originally a three-star recruit out of Huntersville, North Carolina, Chandler chose Wisconsin over offers from Virginia, Duke, Maryland, and Illinois. Chandler visited UVA a few weeks ago and announced his commitment to Virginia on Thursday.
