Wilson missed most of his senior high school season with a knee injury, but still earned a spot in the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas all-star game. The two-way star made 39 tackles and had six interceptions his junior year, with two forced fumbles and two defensive touchdowns. He had more than 100 tackles during his career, including 15 his senior season, despite playing in only two games.
According to most scouts, Wilson is a valuable cover corner and excellent return man. He returned several kickoffs for touchdowns during his high school career.
The 5'11" 175 pound star has been clocked at 4.5 seconds in the 40 yard dash. He turned down offers from Mississippi, Missouri, N.C. State and Purdue.
