Wilson was one of the more dominant defenders in the Mobile area this fall, racking up 84 total tackles - including 58 solos - seven tackles for a loss, four sacks, two caused fumbles, one fumble recovery and three pass break-ups.

He flies to the football and brings a load when he gets there."

Wilson was also a big-play specialist on defense for Davidson, returning a fumble recovery 52 yards for a touchdown in a 38-35 loss to Blount and piling up three sacks in a game against Murphy.
