State Journal beat reporter Colten Bartholomew does a solo podcast from his bedroom closet to talk about Badgers football news. He starts by breaking down how COVID-19 coronavirus is affecting coaches and players on the recruiting trail, how they're adjusting, how the regular season might be altered by COVID-19, and the financial impacts that football has on UW athletics. Then, he shares part of his conversation with Alvis Whitted, UW's new receivers coach.

Peterson, a three-star outside linebacker/defensive end from Akron, Ohio, was one of the Badgers’ top targets on defense since the spring of 2019. He tallied 21 sacks in his junior season at Archbishop Hoban, and chose the Badgers over offers from Alabama, Michigan, West Virginia and more.
