The Next 25: No. 19 Garrett Wilson’s versatility will help him down the road

Last year's 26-6A newcomer of the year helped lead Lake Travis to a state title. Then the offers started coming.

Posted June 12th, 2017


Scouting the state’s top recruits for the 2019 class:

No. 19: Garrett Wilson, wide receiver, Lake Travis

FYI: 6-0/178; 4-stars


Texas offer: No

Top offers: Houston, Arkansas, Baylor, SMU

College: Undecided

Scouting Wilson: The offensive newcomer of the year in District 25-6A helped Lake Travis win a state championship, and by the end of spring practices the sophomore had already garnered double-digit college offers. The 6-foot, 178-pound athletic receiver excelled in the Cavaliers’ offense, finishing the season with 53 catches for 699 yards and 12 touchdowns. He’ll be able to play multiple receiver positions in college; he’s strong enough to play on the outside and quick enough to play in the slot.
