Prior to enrolling at Tennessee, the hard-hitting Wilson recorded 135 tackles, 9.5 sacks and 5 INTs at the City College of San Francisco.
The 6-0, 197-pounder's best moment came last season when he picked off a pass with 4:42 to play in the shadow of his own goal line to seal a 10-6 victory over Miami. Wilson has the speed and range to cover the field, but is said to have questionable hands. He's known as a hard worker with a solid work ethic that will do whatever it takes to improve.
In addition to competing with Ryan Clark and Clarence LeBlanc for a reserve safety spot, he's also going to be relied upon to help the club's special teams.
