2022 WR Vinny Anthony

Wide receiver 6-foot-0 167 pounds Louisville Male (Ky.) High School 3-star; No. 100 WR

The Badgers were looking for some wide receivers this recruiting cycle with Danny Davis and Kenric Pryor set to leave the program. Vinny Anthony will be one of the new additions to the wide receiver room for next season.

The 6-foot-1 wide receiver from Louisville Male High School in Kentucky had 49 receptions in his senior season for 1,108 yards and 16 TDs as a huge threat in a passing game that helped the Bulldogs reach the state championship game.

Anthony looks like he can be a very solid receiving target, with good size and speed combination. He and fellow commit Tommy McIntosh will hope they can build to be a good receiving tandem for UW.
