In his final game before he officially becomes a Buckeye, Garrett Wilson showed why he's one of the top wide receivers in the recruiting class of 2019.

Wilson had two spectacular touchdown catches in the All-American Bowl on Saturday, showing his ability to high-point the football and make contested grabs as he caught a pair of downfield throws from future Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler in the end zone.

For his first touchdown catch, Wilson made a play over Indiana commit Tiawan Mullen in the left rear corner of the end zone to haul in the reception.

A product of Lake Travis High School in Austin, Texas, who was also recruited aggressively by Texas before committing to Ohio State, Wilson appeared to throw the "Horns Down" signal after his catch, but Wilson later said on Twitter that was not his intent.

Wilson's second touchdown catch was even more impressive. Once again, Wilson made a play over Mullen, this time out-leaping him on a 50/50 ball at the goal line to haul in a deep pass.

Wilson's two touchdown catches were the only scoring plays for the West team in the All-American Bowl. The East team, which featured fellow Ohio State signees Harry Miller, Zach Harrison and Steele Chambers, won the game 48-17.

Following his weekend in San Antonio, Wilson – who was also named the All-American Bowl Man of the Year on Friday – is set to make his way to Columbus to join the Buckeyes as an early enrollee.
