Beckum Returning for Senior Year

Wisconsin Badgers All-American tight end Travis Beckum announced Thursday that he will return for his senior season. Beckum has 73 receptions for a nation-leading (among tight ends) 960 yards. His 73 catches are the most ever for a Wisconsin tight end and are just two away from tying former All-America wide receiver Lee Evans’ school record of 75. Beckum’s 960 yards are also a UW record for tight ends. He needs just 40 yards to become only the fourth 1,000-yard receiver in school history.
