It looks like Wisconsin’s receiving group is hungry to make some highlight plays in 2019.
The Badgers already know they will be heading into the season with a new quarterback after Alex Hornibrook’s departure. Jack Coan looks to be the early favorite to replace him after appearing in limited action each of the past two seasons. Thankfully, early returns indicate the team will have playmakers on the outside, regardless of who winds up throwing the ball to them.
Kendric Pryor was the first receiver to come up with an impressive snag in camp for the Badgers. He elevated through contact and came down with an impressive juggling reception on this play.
Not to be outdone, Aron Cruickshank posted a highlight-reel catch of his own in practice Monday. He elevated nicely over his defender and came down with a truly impeccable one-handed grab:

Cruickshank appeared in 13 games as a freshman but was used mainly as a returner and runner. It is probably safe to assume he will be more involved in the passing attack this season.
