The Wisconsin Badgers football team scrimmaged tonight. I thought quite a few guys stood out, including Scott Nelson, Colin Wilder, Reggie Pearson, Nakia Watson, Spencer Lytle, Garrett Groshek and Izayah Green-May.
Nelson had the play of the scrimmage, ripping the ball out of John Chenal’s arms right before he was about to cross the goal line for a TD.
Wilder and Pearson laid a couple of nasty hits on the running backs on consecutive plays in another goal line stand by the defense.
Graham Mertz threw the lone TD of the day, an 8-yard bullet to Groshek.
Nakia Watson got a lot of work and looked good. Had an impressive 42-yard run.
