Position: Kicker

Previous College: None

Projection: Redshirt

Status: On Scholarship

Dillon Scott Wilson (b. May 21, 1993) may be the youngest player on the roster, and considering he plays a position currently occupied by two veterans who attempted field goals in the spring game, he's also the surest bet to redshirt.

He's without a doubt the kicker of the future, though. Thus far, it seems that only walk-on Jack Cantele will remain to oppose him in two seasons. Several other kickers who were on the roster last season appear to have quit the team.

Wilson was 6 of 8 on field goals with a long of 44 during his senior year of high school. He made 7 of 7, with a long of 47, as a junior. He also was 37-7 in four seasons of wrestling, should we ever find ourselves in need of those skills.

ESPN rated him the No. 29 kicker in his class. Rivals and Scout had him in the top 20. Here's a fun quote from him:

I promised Coach Snyder that when I come, all of my kickoffs are going in the endzone, and I don't break my promises. On my kickoffs, I've been hitting them about 75 yards consistently with an average of 3.90 hang time, about five yards deep in the endzone at the college level. I hit a 60-yard field goal off the ground at UTEP at their camp and I've been hitting 50-yarders consistently.
