Sophomore Quintez Cephus making strides for Wisconsin at wide receiver

Wisconsin needs to build depth at receiver to take pressure off passing targets Troy Fumagalli and Jazz Peavy and quarterback Alex Hornibrook. A small sample size shows sophomore Quintez Cephus could provide that punch.

MADISON – With only one year of varsity football experience, sophomore Quintez Cephus knows he’s behind in the experience department compared to a lot of his teammates and defenders.

That’s why the Wisconsin wide receiver has a love for practices, opportunities for him to see tangible growth.

“I’m happy to see I’m getting better,” Cephus said following Tuesday’s fourth Badgers practice of spring. “I love the developmental process of it. I can see how I am getting better and I’m feeling better in what I’m doing. I’m just taking another step in that learning process to get better.

Wisconsin’s young wide receivers are being put front and center this spring with the graduation of Rob Wheelwright, as position coach Ted Gilmore pushes to find capable options to take pressure off senior receiver Jazz Peavy. In the three practices open to the media, Cephus appears to be one of those options.
