The season is over for Indianapolis (Ind.) Heritage Christian class of 2013 wide receiver Anthony Warrum, and he plans to use his newly acquired free time to visit a few college campuses. This past weekend Warrum spent a couple days at Wisconsin.
"I drove up Friday morning and met with Coach [Dave] Huxtable, got a tour of the facilities and had a campus tour," Warrum said. "It was cool how the campus and the city were kind of combined into one."
This weekend's trip was Warrum's first time on the Madison campus. The time spent around the Wisconsin coaching staff allowed him to get a feel for their interest.

"They were interested and I got [Huxtable's] card," Warrum said. "I left my film at home and they wanted to see that, so I am going to email him as soon as I finish that."
Warrum stayed through Saturday to catch the Badger's home contest with Purdue, and came away impressed with the atmosphere of Camp Randall.
"I really like how the team runs their offense, as well as the crowd and how passionate the fans are," he said.
The 6-1, 175-pound Warrum has been a very productive wide receiver during his career. This past season he recorded 65 receptions for over 1,300 yards and 15 touchdowns. Watching Saturday's game at Camp Randall, he found a Wisconsin receiver whose game his own resembles.
"[Jared] Abbrederis, I'm kind of like him after watching him play," Warrum said. "He is pretty crafty and his technique is very good. I don't know if he is that much faster, but he makes up for it a lot because his technique is so good."
Prior to his visit to Wisconsin, Warrum had made unofficial visits to Indiana and Ball State. He is considering several visits this month, with Northwestern being a priority for him to see.
"They have been the most consistent with me," Warrum said of Northwestern. "I think I am going to get up to Northwestern either this weekend or next weekend. I'm excited and really interested to see them especially after they had that big win this weekend. I really like Northwestern's offense."
Other schools Warrum is considering visiting this fall include Kentucky and Cincinnati.
