Rookie Rewind: Garrett Wilson

Matt Parkinson introduces Jets fans to their new receiver, Garrett Wilson.

With the 10th pick of the 2022 NFL Draft, the New York Jets select, WR, Garrett Wilson from THE Ohio State University.

Wilson hails from Ohio but eventually moved to Austin Texas, one of the football capitals of the world, where he played his ball at Lake Travis High School.  He emerged as a star in all athletics, especially basketball and of course football.  Wilson would receive scholarship offers in basketball, but would ultimately choose football, as his numbers were just insane.  For the class of 2019, he was ranked the number 2 WR in the country, with an 88-scouting grade, and 4-Stars to show for it according to ESPN.com.  As a highly touted recruit from Austin, many expected Wilson to sign with the Texas Longhorns, but instead, he chose to go back to Ohio, joining the Buckeyes.
