Dontre Wilson did not hear his name called at the 2017 NFL Draft.

But the former Ohio State wide receiver/H-back will still get his shot at playing professional football, as he's signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Los Angeles Chargers.

The news was first reported by Land of 10's Ryan Ginn.

Over his four-year career with the Buckeyes, Wilson totaled 1,353 yards from scrimmage (925 receiving, 428 rushing) and scored 12 touchdowns. During his senior season in 2016, Wilson caught 27 passes for 352 yards and five scores. Additionally, he ran for 78 yards and a touchdown.

A former high-profile recruit from DeSoto, Texas, Wilson came to Ohio State with big expectations as part of the Buckeyes' 2013 recruiting class. He battled injuries throughout his sophomore and junior seasons but finished his career playing in 38 games.

His career will continue in Los Angeles.
