Wilson, who caught an area-best 21 touchdown passes for Glades Central last season, leads the Mid-American Conference in receptions per game (9.67) and receiving yards per game (110.0). Among Division I receivers, he ranks third (tied) and in eighth in those categories. He has a touchdown in each of his first three games, and has 100 yards receiving and 10 receptions in two of three.

Against Eastern Illinois on Sept. 8, Wilson put up 154 yards and two touchdowns on 11 catches. His second TD was a one-handed grab which earned him the No. 3 play on that night’s Sportscenter Top 10 plays. He also had 104 punt return yards.

Wilson was a first-team All-Area selection as a senior in 2011, when he racked up 932 yards and an area-best 21 touchdowns on 54 receptions. Over three varsity seasons, Wilson had 1,818 yards and 31 touchdowns on 104 catches.
