It was no doubt a lifelong dream come true for himself, and in some ways, his parents living vicariously through him as well. Wilson will forever be remembered as one of the best Ohio State receivers of all time and for good reason. He is one of the most dynamic OSU receivers to ever don the scarlet and gray.
Originally from Ohio, Wilson moved to Austin, Texas, and came back home to be a Buckeye. I can’t imagine what it’s like to have a son drafted in the first round of the NFL draft, but Wilson’s dad put the moment into words spectacularly. If you haven’t seen the message he had for his son after the massive occasion, you can click on the below and let it play thanks to the NFL’s official Twitter page.
