Garrett Wilson is a Texas native who just happened to take his talents to Ohio State, but the former Buckeyes star revealed something that should make Eagles fans grin ear to ear.

While addressing the media at the NFL Combine on Wednesday, Wilson noted that he was a fan of the Eagles, and Michael Vick while growing up in Austin, Texas.

The former Lake Travis High School star logged 70-catches, for 1,058-yards and 12 touchdowns during his final season in Columbus, and the crafty wide receiver has been mocked to Philadelphia on several occasions this winter.

It would be a great match from a scheme point of view, but Wilson may not slide past the Cleveland Browns at No. 13 overall. Wilson would be comfortable playing in the AFC North thanks to his time at Ohio State, and he has a prior relationship with former Lake Travis and current Browns star quarterback, Baker Mayfield.

Wilson improved each year in Columbus and he’d certainly mesh well on the outside with DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, and others.
