TRANSFER: Former Wisconsin Safety Joins Buffalo

Adding experience to DB unit should improve Buffalo’s odds in 2021.

Buffalo will welcome incoming transfer Madison Cone to the program after spending four years as a safety for the Wisconsin Badger defense.

Cone’s going to be a grad transfer that didn’t have a ton of playing time at Wisconsin, but played as both a corner and nickel safety for the team. He’s an Academic All-Big Ten guy with a degree in community and nonprofit leadership, so he seems like a positive influence to have around if nothing else. Football-wise, Cone played in 33 games, started twice, and has a career 27 tackles (0.5 TFL), 2 INT, and 2 PBU.

This offseason, Buffalo’s defense has lost three starters: All-MAC DE Malcolm Koonce (NFL Draft), CB Roy Baker (transfer to Eastern Kentucky), and LB Tyree Thompson (NFL Draft). I don’t doubt that Buffalo’s can’t make up the talent lost with its developed players that have come up through the system, but this is an addition worth keeping tabs on.
