The University of Wisconsin football team was forced inside the McClain Center this afternoon, due a threat of rain. However, being inside didn't stop the Badgers from accomplishing a bunch during the two and half hour practice.
The stars on the offensive side of the ball were again the wide receivers. Paul Hubbard and H-back Travis Beckum had back to back touchdowns during a redzone session.
Freshmen Xavier Harris continued his stellar camp with another long touchdown reception. Harris, who was in a group of five receivers rotating with the first team, also had a brilliant catch across the middle, hanging on to the ball even after being drilled by two defenders.
Freshmen Maurice Moore was no longer wearing the green jersey of a quarterback and it appears he will be trying to earn time as a receiver and return man this year.
The offensive line also had some movement with Danny Kaye working behind Andy Kemp at right guard as well as his usual tackle spot behind Joe Thomas. After practice, Coach Bret Bielema said that they were just trying to maximize their depth along the line.
Senior QB John Stocco participated throughout practice after taking some time off last night. He was especially sharp on the touchdown throws to Hubbard and Beckum. Backup Tyler Donovan continues to impress with his deep ball attempts.
Running back Jamil Walker showed some quick feet on a few runs, as did Dywon Rowan. Starter P.J. Hill was able to break off a long run down the sideline after bouncing the play outside.
The team will practice outside the next few days, including two a day's that start Saturday.
