Austin, Texas, Lake Travis four-star wide receiver Garrett Wilson will soon choose between the only two homes he’s ever known — on Saturday night, the Dublin native named Ohio State and Texas as his finalists.

He'll officially visit both programs next month and make a decision shortly thereafter.

“It’s still a top program like it was when I was coming up, and every year they are a legit contender,” Wilson told Eleven Warriors when asked what stands out about the Buckeyes. “They’ve got it all figured out.”

The 6-foot, 185-pound Wilson is considered the sixth-best wide receiver and No. 46 prospect overall in the Class of 2019, as he hauled in 98 passes for 1,774 yards and 26 touchdowns to lead the Cavaliers to a berth in the state championship game last fall.

Wilson first came onto Ohio State's radar while the staff was in pursuit of his teammate and eventual four-star quarterback signee Matthew Baldwin. They offered him a scholarship in December, just a few days after Baldwin committed.

Wilson — as mentioned — moved to the Lone Star State in sixth grade, but returned to campus  last weekend for the first time since moving. He was able to spend some time with family and friends who remained in the area, and also met with head coach Urban Meyer; offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day; and wide receivers coach Zach Smith.

“[They said] that this is a place that’s gonna set me up to be able to get drafted,” Wilson said. “But then if it doesn’t go like that — which it mostly doesn’t — they can set me up with jobs and have connections for me to be successful after football.”
