Badgers TE Jake Ferguson announces decision on 2021 season
With a couple of big defensive players announcing their return for Wisconsin on Saturday, the offense got a major boost as well.
Tight end Jake Ferguson, projected to be a Day 3 pick in the NFL Draft, is returning to the Badgers for 2021. Ferguson made the announcement via his social media channels.
Despite COVID-19 limiting Wisconsin to just seven games this year, Ferguson still posted an impressive career-high in receptions (36) and receiving yards (456) while tying a career-high in touchdowns (four). The junior has had three highly productive years in Madison.
A fifth season could well make him one of the top tight ends in the 2022 NFL Draft.
