For Wesley, the first practice couldn't have come at a better time.
"It feels great being out here competing with my teammates again," he said.
Now looked at as a leader for the Volunteers, Wesley relishes the chance to give guidance to the younger players.
"I motivate them a lot now because they're still a little shy and don't know what to do yet; how to read signals and what to do on certain plays," Wesley said.
What is he hoping to improve this spring?
"Work on my zone coverage, I'm pretty good at man but really I want to work on my reaction time," he said.
Among the schools in attendance at Monday's practice were Boise State, Iowa State, Utah State, Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Monroe and West Virginia. Wesley added his third offer when the Mountaineers verbally offered.
Wesley says one team is standing out above the others and says a decision could come within a few weeks or at the latest, a couple of months.
"Right now I'm leaning toward TCU and waiting on whatever else is out there," he said. "Maybe (a decision will be made) toward the end of spring or maybe the beginning of next season."
