After all the craziness that went on regarding Quintez Cephus, the former Wisconsin wide receiver is back.
Cephus is ready to get back to school, ready to get back on the football field and is ready to make a difference again. Back in 2017, when the 6-foot-1 play-maker was in a Badger uniform, he caught 30 passes for 501 yards and 6 TD. That was his sophomore campaign.
Now, if he’s able to see the field again in 2019, Cephus may make even more of an impact according to Wisconsin linebacker Chris Orr:
Orr on Cephus:
”I think his numbers are going to be better (than 2017). He looks more explosive, he looks faster and he looks like a better player. He was already pretty good and he looks even better.” #Badgers

Again, Orr thinks the numbers will be better. But, what is more important is that Cephus looks more explosive, faster and just an overall better football player.
If that’s the case, Wisconsin’s offense may be a bit more dynamic in the passing game, which always proves to be useful in Madison. The fewer times that defenses stack the box against running back Jonathan Taylor, the better.
Wisconsin’s 2019 season kicks off on Aug. 30 at USF.
