1998 Media Guide: A 34-game Ohio State veteran who is coming off a fine showing in spring practice … possessed with excellent quickness and is a terrific pass rusher … must continue to work on stopping the run … ends coach Shawn Simms is a believer of Wilson, saying that he “just needs to carry the run-stopping abilities that we see in practice into the game … he shows quickness and technique to get the job done” … enters his senior season with 31 tackles including five tackles for loss … four of those TFLs are sacks.

1997: Played in 11 games with an 11-minute effort vs. Bowling Green tops … recorded nine tackles, including a tackle for loss against Indiana … four tackles against Wyoming represents his top

1997 Media Guide: Is a leading candidate to replace Mike Vrabel at the Leo position (strong side defensive end) … backed up Vrabel last year and was the third defensive end … was used mostly in pass rushing situations … does not have Vrabel’s strength as yet, but is exceptionally quick and difficult to block.

1996: Played a total of 65 minutes in 11 games … finished the 1996 campaign with nine tackles and two passes broken up … three tackles against Pittsburgh was his top effort.

1996 Media Guide: Backs up Matt Finkes, but can play either side and is the Buckeyes’ third end … gets an excellent jump at the line of scrimmage and is a fine pass rusher … has improved dramatically since enrolling at Ohio State and has the potential to win all-conference honors before he is through.

1995: Appeared in 11 games for a total of 64 minutes in 1995 … played particularly well from midseason on … finished the 1995 campaign with 13 tackles, including four tackles for loss, all of which were sacks … four tackles against Iowa was his top effort … also credited with a pass broken up and a fumble caused.

1995 Media Guide: Redshirted last year as a true freshman … plays the strong side end and will vie with Brian Stoughton for playing time behind All-America candidate Mike Vrabel … played well in the spring and should be a solid player once he acquires the necessary experience … appears to have a bright future with the Buckeyes.

1994 Redshirted.

High School: A three-year starter on both offense and defense … earned Class AAAA first team all-state honors as a senior and was a two-time all-county selection … helped his squad post a 10-4 record and reach the state semifinals his senior year, marking the furthest Deerfield Beach had ever advanced … team was 10-2 his junior year and won district and regional titles … earned his team’s offensive MVP award as a senior, when he also served as team captain … had 58 total tackles as a senior tackle, including three quarterback sacks, and recovered three fumbles … also was a three-year starter at offensive tackle … a wrestler in high school … high school coach was Kevin Sullivan.
