Had gotten a lot of praise from coaches this spring for leadership.— Bucky’s 5th Quarter (@B5Q) May 21, 2024

Anderson, a 6’1, 200-pound receiver from Verona, Wisconsin, had committed to the Badgers in the Class of 2020 as a walk-on.

In 2023, Anderson caught his first career pass with the Badgers, while playing in all 13 games on special teams.

While Anderson mainly worked with the reserves this offseason in spring ball, he was lauded by both head coach Luke Fickell and wideouts coach Kenny Guiton for his approach and improved leadership by example.
