SUN DEVILS TO WATCH IN 2017
Many Sun Devil diehards have been itching to see Wilson earn a larger role in the offense because of his touted upside, but the casual fan may not know much about him. Regardless, those who want to see more of him will most likely get their wish this fall. New offensive coordinator Billy Napier has called the tight end position the “jack of all trades” in his offense, and said the position will be featured.

When I spoke to wide receiver Ryan Newsome during the spring, he told me about one of Wilson’s one-handed catches where he twisted his body in mid-air. Newsome said Wilson is probably the best tight end in the conference, and that he anxiously awaits when fans can see what the Sun Devils have seen behind closed doors. If you’re looking for a pick to have a breakout year, Wilson is a good bet.
