WR Garrett Wilson (Official Thread)

    @Hstead good call sir. Wilson is already stepping up.
    And yes, it was great seeing the upperclassmen run up to him, Hartline has created a great team first atmosphere in the WR room. Guys willing to forsake their own numbers for the greater good of the team. Some teams, Wilson would be forced to the bench, so that older guys like Mack, Hill, Olave and Victor could get their numbers. But we're seeing how this could work out in the guy's favor once they hit the NFL as guys like McLaurin are looking great, and didn't have huge college numbers.

    Big time red zone threat already. That TD last night was smooth. Good in the NFL too

    I’m a big fan of Demario McCall, but it seems obvious that Wilson is a much more explosive punt returner. From what I’ve seen, Wilson is better at fielding punts, too.

    Yeah. Feel for McCall, but he just doesn't have a position right now.

    I saw him in there a good bit though so hopefully next year as a senior he can find his niche.

    I agree Wilson should be our returner.

    I know Day said he thinks Olave last year played better than Wilson but I'm not so sure about that. It's insane when our QB basically says a WR is uncoverable.

    The question is - when will Day make the change? I’d hope NLT the week before the Wisconsin game.

    Redshirt Tracker: Which Ohio State Freshmen Have Played This Season
    October 1, 2019 By Tom Orr

    Five games into the 2019 Ohio State football season, a handful of Buckeye freshmen have officially crossed the Redshirt Rubicon.

    Just as a reminder, according to NCAA rules that went into place before the 2018 season, players can participate in up to four games in one season and still take a redshirt.

    That means that as soon as a player appears in his fifth game of the year, he has officially used up a year of eligibility.

    Five games into the 2019 season, there are four Buckeyes who have already crossed that mark.

    DE Zach Harrison, WR Garrett Wilson, OC Harry Miller, and RB Marcus Crowley have all officially used a year of eligibility.

    Cannot describe how excited I am that he’s this impactful as a true freshman...

    Next year with the talent we have coming in? Just scary...

    Wilson was on the sideline for every snap of Ohio State's first three possessions. He did not miss much as the Buckeyes ran the ball 12 of the first 16 plays, including 11 straight times to start the game.

    With 11:27 remaining in the second quarter, Wilson entered the game for the first time. He played all 12 snaps of the drive that ended with Blake Haubeil's field goal. Perhaps it's a coincidence, but Fields threw the ball nine times during that drive with Wilson on the field.

    Oh yeah, almost forgot. Garrett the Great did show up for the punt return below. Is it time for him to get the punt return gig full-time? He has my vote.

    With Austin Mack sitting out on Saturday, Wilson now has as many snaps (223) as the senior receiver from Fort Wayne this season.

    Hasn't been discussed much but loved seeing him return punts.

    Yet another weapon for Day and saves me the heart fluttering every time McCall is back there.

    Ten Things We Learned From Ohio State’s 38-7 Win Over Wisconsin

    1. It’s time to make Garrett Wilson the full-time punt returner.
    Demario McCall was back for the first three or four punt returns for the Buckeyes, but eventually freshman Garrett Wilson took over and he needs to stay tooken over. No, that’s not great English. In fact, it may not even actually be English. But the point remains — Garrett Wilson is good at returning punts and looks completely safe and comfortable doing it. He now has five punt returns for 80 yards, which is 16 yards per return — and more than double the averages of McCall and KJ Hill.

    Saturday was a big day for the top two prospects in Ohio State’s recruiting class of 2019. While Harrison made his first start at defensive end for the Buckeyes, five-star wide receiver Garrett Wilson had his biggest game yet as he continues to emerge as a bigger factor in the Buckeyes’ offense.

    Wilson caught four passes for a season-high 82 yards, the most among all Ohio State receivers against Maryland, including a 14-yard touchdown catch from Chris Chugunov in the back left corner of the end zone early in the third quarter.

    Wilson also would have had another 46-yard touchdown reception on a deep ball from Chugunov later in the third quarter, but that one was called back because of a holding penalty on freshman left tackle Dawand Jones.

    Regardless, Saturday was another demonstration that Wilson has the potential to be one of Ohio State’s top playmakers sooner than later – though Day still wants to be cautious about putting too much on the freshman’s plate.

    “Garrett's still real young, but certainly his talent is off the charts,” Day said after Saturday’s game. “I don't want to get too far ahead of ourselves with Garrett, but we think he obviously has a tremendous ceiling, and he's growing every week. He's understanding how to practice. He's understanding how to play within the offense.

    “It's kind of like the way Chris Olave came on late in the season, as well, last year as a freshman. He's kind of into that swing right now where he's got some games under his belt,” Day added. “But I think the big thing for him is just going to be how well do you practice, how well do you take care of the ball, what kind of discipline do you have during the week, because if he does that then he could be as good as he wants to be.”

    Rotating in with starter Binjimen Victor at the X receiver position, Wilson currently ranks fourth among Ohio State receivers with 18 catches for 216 yards and four touchdowns this year. He also appears to have established himself as the Buckeyes’ top punt returner, as he replaced Demario McCall as the starter in that role against Maryland.

    Wilson’s role has gradually increased as the season has progressed, and like Olave down the stretch of last season, he seems to be on the cusp of breaking out and potentially making a major impact for the Buckeyes in their big games down the stretch of the year.

    The freshman says he isn’t focused on how big his role will be, though, but simply on making the plays he is expected to make when his number is called.

    “When I’m out there, I’m in the zone, for sure,” Wilson said. “But I look at it as just doing my job. If I’m not making that play, I’m upset with myself.”

    Garrett Wilson arrived in Columbus this past January as one of the more heralded wide receiver prospects we've ever seen. Given the depth at the position, no one was really expecting Wilson to start or even have too immense of an impact.

    Last year, it was freshman Chris Olave who emerged late in the season to make his presence felt, and some speculated it would be a similar path for Wilson. The former five-star has already recorded more receptions (18 compared to 12), yards (216 to 197), and touchdowns (4 to 3) than Olave did in 2018.

    He's flashed at times while seeing limited duty at wideout and has made an impact in the return game. With K.J. Hill, Austin Mack, and Binjimen Victor all in their final season, Wilson is looking like the next big thing for Brian Hartline and the Ohio State passing attack.
