John Luke's thoughts
A recent commitment for MSU and another wide receiver that can come in and contribute. Also another two sport star. Wilson, at 6-6, is a very good wing player on the hardwood. It is unclear if he will play basketball at MSU yet or not. He very well could. Wilson, like BJ Hammond, is a tall guy that should help in the red zone and should be a weapon out on the edge.
