Anthony comes into a wide receiver room that has plenty to prove after losing both Kendrick Pryor and Danny Davis to the NFL.
Anthony is versatile and was one of the receivers who took reps on punt return earlier this week -- the other being junior receiver Dean Engram.
Anthony was a deep-ball threat in high school with impressive hands. He made plenty of contested catches running both long and short routes.
We have seen players make a name for themselves on special teams, and that could be an area where Anthony sees a good amount of action.
The Badgers have an intriguing class of developing pass-catchers going into this season, and Anthony is one of those players to keep an eye on.
