Wisconsin football secures commitment from former Cincinnati WR Quincy Burroughs

Wisconsin football made yet another transfer addition on Tuesday afternoon.

Former Cincinnati wide receiver Quincy Burroughs took to Twitter to announce his commitment to UW.

With Burroughs’ commitment, Luke Fickell has secured his second transfer addition of the week.

Burroughs, a freshman WR, redshirted in his first year with Cincinnati. Despite having no stats in 2022, the 6-foot-2, 202-pound wide receiver heads to Madison with plenty of upside.

According to 247Sports, Burroughs is a former three-star recruit. He came in as the 142nd wide receiver in the class and the 129th-ranked player in Florida. He led Raines High School to an appearance in the Florida high school playoffs.

Burroughs was a productive receiver in high school. According to MaxPreps, the three-year varsity WR posted 705 yards and three touchdowns. His best year came in his senior season, where he registered 32 receptions for 454 yards and three touchdowns.

How Burroughs’s commitment impacts the Wisconsin Badgers receiver group

Burroughs brings plenty of versatility to Madison’s receiver room. His ability as a blocker is an intriguing part of his game, as his stature allows him to overpower cornerbacks. Despite being a bigger-bodied wide receiver, he has excellent agility that will enable him to make guys miss in the open field.

With his upside, Burroughs can make a substantial impact as a blocker and a receiver with excellent ball skills. With Wisconsin’s youth in their receiver room, Burroughs will have the opportunity to compete for meaningful playing time.

The Badgers have a receiver room full of young talent, with Keontez Lewis, Skyler Bell, Markus Allen, Vinny Anthony, and Quincy Burroughs in the fold. As UW trots out a new signal caller in 2023, there will be young receivers with plenty of upside all over the field.
