Kendric Pryor is a player with some amazing potential. Whether he lines up for the Wisconsin Badgers at wide receiver or somewhere in the secondary, Pryor has always been able to produce, as per Maxpreps.com, he averaged over 20 yards per catch his junior and senior seasons. Early playing time may not come for Pryor depending upon his position, but you never know with the Badgers' receiving corp. Look for the Illinois product to be active on special teams while developing as a skills player.

Pryor's recruitment was heavily based on which schools would offer him as a receiver. While many programs wanted Pryor as a cornerback, the Badgers jumped on him as his preferred offensive position of wide receiver and from then on it was clear the close-to-home Badgers had the advantage. Pryor was also offered by Iowa, Iowa State, Connecticut, and Army.
