CORONA, Calif. -- Gardena (Calif.) Serra senior Caleb Wilson may fancy himself a quarterback, but after the Cavaliers’ first-round loss to Corona (Calif.) Centennial several weeks back, it’s difficult to see him in any role other than pass-catching tight end/inside receiver.
At 6-foot-4, 190 pounds, Wilson is a load to bring down, and while not the swiftest of foot, can go up and get balls not only in the red zone, but in the open field and in traffic. He adusts well to the ball in flight, and can improvise when needed due to the Cavaliers’ scrambling junior quarterback, Khalil Tate, improvising on the run.
If he's to be a pass-catcher at the next level, he has to improve his speed. He moves a bit too slow and doesn't have a ton of quickness, but the nose for the ball and the body control are certainly there, as is the size.
Wilson led Serra with a season-high eight catches for season-best 161 yards and two touchdowns in the Cavaliers’ final game of the season, the fifth straight game in which he did not throw a single pass or line up at quarterback.
On the season, Wilson completed 47 of 82 passes for 610 yards and one touchdown, rushed 15 times for 96 yards and one score, and caught 18 balls for 310 yards and seven touchdowns. He also served as a punter, booting 32 balls an average of 36.5 yards, with 15 downed inside the 20.
HIGHLIGHTS: Serra's Caleb Wilson
