Scout ranks Wilson as the No. 1 player in the state of Texas for the 2017 class. He's the nation's top defensive tackle prospect and No. 9 overall in the 2017 Scout 300.

Below is Scout's evaluation of Wilson:

Wilson is a massive defensive line prospect who dominates at the point of attack. Possesses the strength and power to overwhelm most opponents at the high school level. Tall, long-armed, thick-trunked. Consistently gets off blocks to make plays vs. run and as a pass-rusher. Powerful bull-rusher, sometimes even when doubled. Explosion off the ball looked noticeably better on junior tape compared to sophomore film. Pursues well for such a large interior defender. Potentially scheme-versatile as even-front 3-technique DT and multi-position prospect in odd front. Can play a bit too high at times because of his height. While pursuit ability is impressive, can sometimes (understandably) get off-balance laterally. Must be ready to acclimate to a significant jump in competition going from private school football in Texas (a state ruled by public schools) to Power Five college level. Overall, one of the top prospects in Texas - and the nation - in the 2017 cycle. - Gabe Brooks

Wilson teams with Scout's No. 1 offensive tackle in Texas, Walker Little, to give Bellaire Episcopal High School in the Houston area two of the top 75 overall prospects in the country's 2017 class.
