Reader Soaks in Wisconsin

After camping with the Badgers over the summer, Appleton (WI) West senior wide receiver Matthew Reader took in Wisconsin's season opener on Saturday.

In his first game as Wisconsin head coach, Gary Andersen left feeling good after a convincing 45-0 victory over UMass. There were many in-state recruits on hand to take in the Badgers' season opener, including Appleton (WI) West senior wide receiver Matthew Reader, who made the short trip over to Madison and gave his thoughts on how the visit went.

"The visit went well," Reader told BadgerNation. "I knew a lot of guys who were there and I brought two of my coaches along and we all enjoyed the experience. I would rate it well because it was great to talk to the coaches again and it's always fun to be at a game at Camp Randall."

The big and physical 6-5, 195-pound wide out dives in on what he thinks about the new coaching staff, especially Coach Andersen.

"I really like the new coaches," said Reader. "Coach Anderson is a great guy and really cares about more than just football. I just shook his hand and said good morning and I talked to a couple other coaches briefly. They just asked me how my season's been going, talked shortly about my move from quarterback to wide receiver/tight end and how I play defense now and continue to punt for my high school."

As far as visits go, Reader isn't looking at only the football route, as he has turned into a gifted basketball athlete.

"I haven't really talked to any other schools football wise about visits, but lots of basketball visit opportunities coming up," said Reader. "Some schools are offering the option to do both."
