Reggie Pearson absent from fall roster


MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin will open up fall camp on Wednesday, and with that, released their 2020 season roster. There are 12 players no longer listed since the reveal of the spring roster in march, including junior safety Reggie Pearson Jr.

Pearson started all 14 games for the Badgers last season and has 18 career appearances in two years. Arguably the hardest-hitter on the team, Pearson logged 65 tackles, four pass breakups, and three forced fumbles in 2019.

Pearson’s father somewhat addressed the news on Twitter:
